Canterbury Care Home Residents go Back to 60s for Dementia Action Week

Marking Dementia Action Week, residents of Connors House Care Home in Canterbury were taken back to 1969 and the first landings on the moon, for a moon landing party.

It was one giant leap for residents of the Craddock Road care home, as they gathered alongside their guests in the home’s activity centre. Staff had dug out old TV footage, 60s music and trivia games, as well as putting on a 1960s style buffet, complete with cheese and pineapple and Waldorf salad.

Enjoying a glass of punch, the residents joined in the activities on offer, reflecting on their youth and what they would have been doing in 1969.

Rosie Higham, Activity Coordinator at Connors House said: “One of the residents here had some old footage of the moon landings, which he was watching on DVD and I thought the topic could be a great way to highlight Dementia Action Week.

“They had a lovely time and the nostalgia really encouraged the residents to reflect on their memories of the 1960s, the moon landing itself and share their stories with one another.”
