Relatives’ Generosity Funds Activities for Care Home Residents
Taken by the care and support given to their mother at Edward Moore House Residential Care Home, a kind family has gifted the home an interactive activity table.
Keen to support their mother’s and her fellow residents’ wellbeing, the two gentlemen, Ian and David Leadbetter, provided the Gravesend home with an extremely generous gift, in the form of a touch screen activity table.
Having previously gifted the organisation an incredibly lifelike therapy doll, and with a profound interest in mental health and emotional wellbeing, the pair were keen to continue to support meaningful activities for the residents at the home.
The table will be a marvellous addition to the residents’ activity calendar, offering them a combination of sensory, nostalgic, calming, creative and fun activities.
At the touch of a button the residents can video call loved ones, view the place they got married on Google Earth, follow an exercise class on YouTube or enjoy some tabletop games or brain training. They could even turn their favourite photo into a jigsaw puzzle, there is something for everyone.
Ian and David Leadbetter said: “Understanding how important it is for mum, and the other residents, to stay mentally and physically active and how hard the staff work in providing stimulating and fun activities, we felt that the activity table was the perfect addition to support the great work already being undertaken.”
Christine Hutchinson, General Manager of Edward Moore House added: “We are extremely touched by such a generous donation from Ian and David and we’d like to say a huge thank you. The opportunities for an extensive variety of engaging activities within the table are endless and we know the residents will love using it.”
