Cotman are all shook up by Elvis

The residents at Cotman House Care Home in Felixstowe, were entertained by their very own Elvis this month.

Elvis serenaded the residents and care team with songs such as ‘Love me tender’, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ and ‘Hound Dog’. Some of the ladies were massive fans of Elvis when they were younger and loved having Elvis dancing and singing around the home. The power of music, especially singing, to unlock memories and kickstart the grey matter is an increasingly key feature of care. It really lifts the mood of the residents, providing reminiscence of their younger years.

Some of the residents got up and danced with the care team, whilst others reveled dancing in their chairs, singing and clapping along.

Thank you for a fantastic afternoon, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Cotman House provides residential care in a purpose built environment for up to 61 elderly people over looking the Felixstowe Bay.
