Historical afternoon with trip out for Mossley care home ResidentsColleagues took Residents of Sandon care home, on Tameside, on their first trip out since the coronavirus pandemic for a day at the local museum which sparked lots of reminiscing and happy memories. 

Four Residents at the 42-bed residential and residential dementia care home enjoyed the day at the local history museum, Portland Basin, which is just a short drive away. 

They had a walk down the cobbled streets, stepping back in time and reminisced together about the different shops such as the cobblers, fish and chip shop, and the grocery store. 

Madge, who lives at Sandon care home, recognised the gramophone, bagatelle game and this brought back so many memories for her. 

Madge commented, “It was so nice to reminisce. It brought back so many memories."

Fellow Resident Joan told Colleagues about how the cobblers brought back memories of her grandad, and she loved the old singer sewing machines as she used to work with these.

The group stopped for lunch in the café, before heading back home.

Lynne Campbell, Care Home Manager, said, “The group had such a wonderful time out, and we are all very much looking forward to the next trip!”
