Life’s a Beach at Wigmore Care Home

We’re all missing our holidays and a dose of vitamin sea this year, so staff at Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore decided to host a fun filled beach day for residents.

Summer may be coming to an end but residents of the Drewery Drive care home were happy as clams this week, when the activity staff put on a variety of seaside activities for their themed beach day.

Residents were invited to seas the day and join in a number of sensory activities, designed to simulate their senses and spark positive memories, from shells and sand displays to calming seaside sounds playing in the background. Staff also decorated the room with inflatables and assisted residents with themed word searches.

The group spent some time exploring the items, which led to several discussions about their younger days, where they used to holiday and what they enjoyed doing with their families. Many of the residents spent summers exploring the Kent coast, so everyone had a great time sharing their memories with one another.

Jackie Miles, Home Manager at Rogers House said: “Usually our residents would enjoy trips to the seaside during the warmer months but this year, due to the ongoing pandemic, we haven’t been able to have our normal outings, which have been greatly missed.

“With that in mind, the activity team decided to host a beach themed day, which resulted in some great discussion and memory sharing of previous outings to the seaside and in particular, what they used to do with their families, everyone had a great afternoon.”
