Sports-themed décor at Gilwood

Colleagues and residents of Gilwood Lodge Nursing Home in Blackpool have been busy transforming our upper floor with decorations depicting some of our favourite sports.

Golf, cricket, football and snooker scenes are now brightening up the walls of corridors and communal areas, reminding our residents of happy times in their lives – and providing a sensory experience in terms of textures to touch.

Our administrator, Ann, said: “The pictures and props are a great talking point. Our décor features things like real sandpaper for the golf course bunkers.”

The project follows on from efforts to create the facilities of a typical village, such as a post office and a pub on the ground floor.

In other news, we have been enjoying the spring sunshine, sitting outside and also taking afternoon tea al fresco!
