Friends, family members and the community are invited to ‘come together’ at Birch Green for a special event marking the opening of our new dementia suite including a Beatles-themed room.
The newly-decorated dementia suite has been decorated with help and donations from so many supporters – including a themed room nicknamed the Cavern Club, complete with memorabilia gifted by the Cavern Club itself.
The room, designed as a place for those residents of our home living with dementia to relax and inspire memories, is to be officially opened with a special appearance by popular tribute act The Pretend Beatles.
Many of our residents are of an age where the swinging sixties evokes a number of happy memories, and top of these is often The Beatles and the music of the era.
Music is a very effective form of therapy in dementia care, and when planning for the refurbishment of the room we knew it should play a big part in the theme.
We are delighted with the outcome. None of this would have been possible without lots of hard work from so many people, decorating, painting and helping with donations, and we were delighted that the Cavern Club itself was able to donate items to us.
The Pretend Beatles performing the official opening is really the icing on the cake, and we can’t wait for people to see the new room and what it is able to offer to residents in our new dementia suite.
Thanks to support and hard work from friends, family members and the local community, the room has been decked out with a specially-painted piano, guitars on the wall and various photographs and artwork designed to trigger memories of the swinging sixties.
We are now throwing open our doors to guests on Friday, August 7 from 2pm, with an event set to include refreshments, a gift shop where visitors can purchase items raising funds for our residents’ fund, and the special Dementia Bistro.
