A lovely walk

Residents and staff at Birch Green Care Home took part in their own Memory Walk on World Alzheimer’s Day recently.

 

Torrential rain meant the walks set off later than planned, but after the weather brightened up, all those who took part had a fabulous time.

 

One of our residents, Renee, enjoyed it so much she walked round the route with us every time, and there was plenty of singing and dancing along the way.

Fun with balloons at Birch Green

There was fun to be had at Birch Green Care Home as staff and residents gathered to play a colourful game.

 

The group, sat in a circle in one of our lounges, used a brightly coloured fabric ‘parachute’ to propel balloons into the air.

 

A great time was had by all.

 


 

‘The best days of our lives…’

Birch Green’s ever-changing central display has a schooldays theme this month.

 

To create the display we gathered pictures of the schools some of our residents attended in their childhood.

 

The display also featured a traditional school table and chair along with school uniform items.

 

The display has sparked plenty of discussion about our own school days and how they were ‘the best days of our lives.’

 

We hope that visitors to Birch Green stop to take a minute and take a look at the fascinating display.

 


 

Heartwarming visit for Birch Green’s Lily

Birch Green resident Lily was accompanied recently to visit her sister Eileen in a touching reunion.

 

The pair had not seen each other for some time, and Lily was armed with flowers and a cream cake – just what was needed to go with a nice cup of tea.

 

The sisters spent all morning talking about their childhood days, and Lily even received a surprise phone call from her younger brother, Frank, who lives further away.

 

Eileen shared her son’s wedding photographs and they spent time reminiscing about their own wedding days.

 

The pair loved having a good natter – that’s what sisters are for.

Memory Walk for Birch Green

A team of staff from Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale took part in this year’s Memory Walk, raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society Walk.

 

The event took place in the picturesque grounds of Croxteth Country Park in Liverpool.

 

The Alzheimer’s Society, organisers of the walk, aims to raise a total of more than £9million through the 2017 activities.

 

Gill Seddon, Activities Coordinator said "the rain and wind did not deter us and we all had an amazing humbling afternoon raising money for the Alzheimer's Society, a charity close to all our hearts".

 

Well done team Birch Green
