Care home enjoys Dignity Action Day by cooking and singing
A Norwich care home celebrated Dignity Action Day by hosting a wide range of activities for residents paying for care to enjoy.
The Warren care home in Sprowston put on cooking and craft sessions, exercising, pampering and musical entertainment which included piano playing, accordion and singing, reports the Norwich Evening News.
Residents also displayed their wishes on The Warren Wishing Tree and those who could not leave their rooms engaged in discussions about the past using photographs to commemorate the day, which promotes dignity and respect for older people.
General manager Hilary Taylor told the newspaper: "We aimed to show visitors that our older residents are valuable citizens who have led interesting lives and are still valuable members of society."
Meanwhile, residents at Westmead Care Home in Droitwich are to go blue on Thursday March 24th, to raise awareness for prostate cancer.
They will don blue face paint, listen to blues music and enjoy blue food and drink for the cause, after blue was chosen as the official colour to represent Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
