The team at a Barley care home have held a special celebration to mark World Alzheimer’s Day,
Margaret House residential and dementia care home staff wanted to ensure the day was a positive and fun-filled occasion, and relatives were invited to join residents for an afternoon tea complete with a selection of cakes.
Marian Taylor said: “We enjoyed the tea and the chance to get together with not only with our loved ones, but other relatives and residents as well and spend a lovely afternoon enjoying each other’s company.”
Care home staff were also delighted have been chosen by myPlaylife to be the first care home to trial their new app, with the team behind it also bringing along their own bake-off style ‘showstopper’ to add to the cake selection.
The home is trialling the app, where friends and relatives can upload content for their loved ones, for three months before it goes national.
