Grimsby care home Residents enjoy a crossword over ZoomResidents from HC-One’s Clarendon Hall in Grimsby joined forces with Residents from Alexander Court in Sheffield, to complete a selection of crosswords together over Zoom.

The zoom call provided all Residents an opportunity to have a general catch up and pick each other’s brains with a friendly crossword quiz. Clarendon Residents loved having a chance to chat with other people from another home and exchange stories of their time during lock-down, whilst enjoying a lovely cup of tea.

"If you help me it’s not cheating, we just won't tell anyone," joked Clarendon Hall Resident Jean.

Residents really enjoyed the day especially trying to get the answers down quicker than the other home. It became a bit of a competition.

"Well done everyone, what a great job. We definitely have to do it again soon,” said Hayley, Clarendon Hall wellbeing coordinator.

Colleagues and Residents from both have hope that the calls will become a regular event and possibly even join up with other homes too in the future.
