Easter arts and crafts

It was all hands on deck recently to prepare for Easter.

 

Along with seasonal decorations, residents loved putting together baskets to hold prizes – Easter eggs generously donated by staff members – for a themed raffle.

 

Prizes will be drawn ahead of Easter Sunday, so good luck to all who have a raffle ticket.

On their marks for Ladies’ Day

Recently a number of our residents got into the spirit of the famous Ladies’ Day at the Grand National.

 

Themed decorations, impressive hats and bubbly were the order of the day as we settled down to enjoy the horse racing taking place at Aintree.

 

It’s a great event and a good excuse for a celebration at Birch Green!

 


 

Fun in the sun

At Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale we took advantage of a sunny day recently to play some games.

 

Giant hoopla and skittles were set up in the garden as our residents enjoyed trying out their skills and coordination.

 

The morning was followed by afternoon tea and a chance to relax after the fun and games.

Activity brings smells to life at Birch Green

Sensory stimulation is a great way to bring back fond memories and at Birch Green they recently held a special, ‘smelly’ activity.

 

During the session, Birch Green had 12 jars with a range of different smells. Residents tried to guess the smell and share what it reminded them of.

 

Many fond memories were shared – resident Mildred was reminded of her father who used to grow his own mint and make mint sauce to mix with new potatoes.

 

Edna and Lilly were in agreement that even though they loved brass ornaments at home, there was nothing worse than having to clean it with Brasso.

 

It was a great activity and one which made for an entertaining afternoon.

Cheese, wine and Poems at Birch Green

A sophisticated afternoon was on the menu at Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale recently.

 

A selection of cheese and biscuits were washed down with a glass of wine, with entertainment provided by residents Edna and Mildred, who got into the spirit of the occasion with readings of a selection of memorable poems.
