Bamber Bridge care home Residents show their creative side and get activeAt the beginning of February, Residents at HC-One’s Meadow Bank residential, nursing and nursing memory care home, in Preston, enjoyed an exercise morning and one Resident demonstrated her talented, creative side. 

On 3rd February Wellbeing Coordinator Dawn and Residents from the home’s Willow House unit were busy getting active. Dawn has been finding daily gentle exercise routines through YouTube and they have become a hit with the Residents. 

The sessions generally last around 10 minutes and are also helping the Residents mentally as well as physically.

Everyone involved enjoyed being more active and starting the day with such positivity. 

Dawn Ward, Wellbeing Coordinator, said, “It's amazing how much of a difference 10 minutes of activity can make to a person, it’s lovely to see.”

Also this month, on 5th February Ellen, who is a Resident on the Beech House unit, impressed everyone with her beautifully painted bird box. 

Ellen spent around two and a half hours, with no help from staff, painting the bird box with such stunning details. 

Ellen has always loved painting and certainly has the talent for it.

She was showered with compliments from people at the home. 

Nurse Anne Robinson remarked, “Wonderful artwork Ellen!”

Lynne Terry, Home Administrator, added, “Wow Ellen this is brilliant, well done!”
