A Busy December For Mellish House Residents

28th December 2023

Mellish House Care Home residents embraced the festive spirit over the month of December with resident-led activities, ensuring a joyful and personalised lead-up to Christmas.

With an array of activities being run, it was flower arranging, a perennial favorite among residents, that took centre stage with a special focus on creating beautiful Christmas table pieces. With the support of the team at Mellish House, residents crafted stunning decorations that adorned the Home. Resident Maureen, impressed with her own creation, exclaimed, "I cannot believe I made something so beautiful."

Chantel from Grow My Wellbeing joined residents at Mellish House to create Christmas Terrariums, adding a touch of nature to the holiday décor in the Home. The activity, which also involved some relatives, promoted meaningful experiences and lasting memories.
