Armchair exercises

An afternoon of music and sing-along turned into an impromptu armchair exercise class at Birch Green Care Home.

 

A group including our newest resident, Carol, had plenty of fun and laughter while getting in shape.

 

Light exercise is so important to the wellbeing of our residents and it’s a big focus of our activity schedules.


 

 

Poetry in motion

We have a number of poetry fans at Birch Green, and recently we got together to share our love of reading.

 

The small group took it in turns to share their favourite verses with everyone, an activity which made for an entertaining afternoon.

Coffee morning raises funds

Birch Green Care Home joined in the fun to take part in the annual coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support.

 

The event, described as the world’s biggest coffee morning, sees groups up and down the country host coffee mornings to raise money for the great cause.

 

At Birch Green, the home was specially decorated with bunting and we gathered together to share a cuppa and a tasty treat.

 

We also held a cake competition, fiercely fought between Gill and her mother Cathy. Cathy took the title, with her chocolate and toffee cake the winner.

 

Thanks to all those who took part, we raised £76 for charity.

Celebrating with afternoon tea

One of our favourite activities here at Birch Green is sitting down for a delicious afternoon tea.

 

This time was even more special, as one of our residents, Nellie, celebrated her 98th birthday.

 

We also had a chance to meet our new deputy manager, Vicky, who sat and chatted with all the residents.

Happy birthday Nellie, and welcome to the Birch Green family Vicky!
