As part of a series of events to mark Dementia Awareness Week, Springhill Care home recently held a special party to help increase awareness of the condition.
A cake decorating competition worthy of the Great British Bake Off took place, there was a tasty buffet and we proudly unveiled the brand new terrace in our Treetops Suite.
Staff also found out exactly what it’s like to experience symptoms associated with dementia by participating in activities designed to simulate the condition.
This included wearing goggles and headphones to impair the senses and create confusion while carrying out everyday tasks, like pouring a drink and fastening buttons, and wearing latex gloves filled with popcorn kernels to mimic arthritis.
Fabulous prizes that were kindly donated by our local suppliers, community and friends of Springhill Care Home, were on offer on the raffle and tombola, raising £180 which we will be donating to the Alzheimer’s Society.
We’d like to thank everyone who helped make our party so special.
