Tonbridge Care Home Residents Really Take the Biscuit!


Residents of Barnes Lodge Residential Care Home brightened up a cloudy August morning with a spot of baking, making biscuits to have with their cup of tea.

There isn’t much more evocative than the smell of baked goods in the oven, taking you back to days spent in the kitchen with your family and it’s just the same for our residents.

Each week, residents of the Tudeley Lane care home get together to try their hand at baking something new, this week it was biscuits.

Donning their aprons, the residents enjoyed rolling out the dough and shaping their biscuits, before handing to staff to bake in the oven. Once their treats had baked, they enjoyed them with a cup of tea for their afternoon snack.

Nicky Pett, General Manager of Barnes Lodge commented: “Our residents love their regular baking activities, they give them the opportunity to be social and work together, whilst also enabling them to create something from start to finish, that they can really be proud of.”

Baking is proven to be beneficial for older people, particularly those living with dementia. The activity has a therapeutic effect of course, easing anxiety and depression but it also stimulates the senses, embraces creativities and helps to continue movement in the hands.
