Halloween at Marchglen

The residents at Marchglen in Alloa, were all invited to a Halloween party at the end of the month.

Most of the residents attended and dressed up along with the care team, we were also visited by some residents from one of our sister homes Hillview Court who attended the party with carers from the home.

Communicating with others can sometimes be difficult for someone with a learning disability, and can lead to frustration. A person with a learning disability will experience the same emotions as anyone else, but may not be able to express them. Giving someone a creative outlet can help them to express how they’re feeling and it can help them to better reflect on what they’re feeling and become more self-aware. It can also build independence and self-esteem.

Marchglen had a karaoke Party, dancing and a Halloween styled buffet. Duchray Unit’s June, won a big box of goodies for “best dressed” as a “pirate lady”, see below, and everyone had a great time. These days help residents learn how to interact with others, meeting with our other homes and building friendships.
