Residents at Washington Lodge reminisce with old school games

A few residents and staff members enjoyed cleaning and polishing the windows at Washington Lodge Nursing Home in the North East – bringing back fond memories of family life.

Julie, our activities co-ordinator, said: “It may seem like a simple task, but making the windows sparkle brought our residents comfort, as it reminded them of happy times in their lives.”

Other recent activities included an afternoon of old-school games. Skittles and snakes and ladders proved particularly popular and we were all ready for a Cadbury’s swiss roll afterwards.  

Julie continued: “The games were so fun for everyone. They even brought out residents’ competitive side, which made it even more exciting!”
