Our Homes were buzzing this month with the sights and sounds of the 1950s – the first of our ‘Through the Decades’ themed days, celebrating the iconic aspects of past eras with decorations, music and food.
We saw classic American Diners, milkshakes, poodle skirts, Elvis and more!
Music, entertainment and fancy dress captured the 50s vibe perfectly and our residents’ smiles say it all!
Our Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv Stead said:
“Our residents have seen an incredible amount of history transpire in the past two years alone, so we thought it appropriate to remind them of happier and younger times. Let’s face it, it’s been a difficult period for everyone and how better to raise spirits than give our residents the opportunity to reminisce about the good old days! Our ‘Through the Decades’ initiative offers no pressure or rules, just a welcomed nostalgic distraction. Our first stop in the booming 1950s was a great success. Everyone embraced the yesteryear culture and we had so much fun across our Homes.”
Meyer House Care Home resident, Joan, added:
“I really had a lovely time on our 1950s day. I’m a big Elvis fan so I had a good singalong with my friends. The team makes everything so special for us and they work so hard planning and decorating.”
Our Homes will visit the 1960s in April and 1970s in May – so watch this space!
