Residents awarded medals at Gilwood Lodge

Colleagues at Gilwood Lodge Nursing Home, Blackpool, have been giving home-made medals to residents in honour of various achievements!

Our administrator, Ann, said: “Medals have become the latest craze here. It started when a colleague made a medal for the ‘world’s best colouring in’ for one of our ladies.

“Then other residents joined in the fun, requesting their own awards. We made more medals and gave them out to our champions – including the world’s best mum, domino player and snooker watcher!”

In other news, we’ve been baking delicious crispy cakes and getting together for indoor games including kicking and throwing a soft ball to each other.

Residents have also been making signs for their rooms – one lady put the Manchester City crest on hers, and another made a very princess-like design and adorned it with jewel stickers.
