Residents have fun at Abbeycrest for Halloween

Describing the fun of the event is Sarah Butler, daughter of Joy Aldridge (pictured above). She says: “It was wonderful to walk in and see my mum’s face all painted as a ghoul and she found it so funny too. It was lovely to see mum so happy and joining in with all of the activities at Abbeycrest.”

She continued: “It’s always great to walk into Abbeycrest and find out what mum has been up to, the other day she had just had a foot massage! By knowing that mum is being cared for so well and is happy has taken a huge weight off of the family’s shoulders.”

Abbeycrest is a specialist care home for those with varied types and stages of dementia and offers regular activities for all of its residents to help retain optimum wellbeing.

Marilyn Kimayong, Home Manager, says: “Everyone thinks that if you’re in a nursing home life could be rather gloomy – but it’s not! Our residents really enjoyed Halloween this year and were very keen to get involved. It was definitely something to tell their grandchildren!”
