Ben and the Showgirls at Coxhill Manor

On 29th December, Coxhill Manor residents and team members challenged the notorious post Christmas slump with a visit from the ever popular ‘Ben and the Showgirls’.

Ben and the Showgirls specialise in shows tailored to Nursing homes and Day Care Centres, and are always a massive hit with our residents.

The show began at 11am and kept residents spellbound as Ben sang and the girls danced their way through a fantastic Christmas repertoire of familiar songs.

Ben has an amazing voice and his beautiful dancers add the glitz and glamour in their exquisite costumes with sequins and feathers, making for a very visual show.   They also do a number of costume changes throughout the performance keeping everyone enthralled!

Having the show in the morning worked well as often people can be more alert and engaged in the morning – especially so with some of our residents who are living with dementia.  Irene in particular, who has communication challenges, was singing along and clapping.  She didn’t stop smiling for the whole hour.  She was fully engaged and loved every minute.  A joy and a privilege to see.

And it wasn’t just our residents who enjoyed it… nurses, carers, kitchen team and housekeepers were seen dancing and singing along too!  A show that lifts everyone spirits and brings us all together as one big family.

After the show Ben gave residents the opportunity to have their photos taken with the showgirls, which the residents love, and gives them a lasting memory of the morning.   Needless to say we weren’t short of requests!
