The Sound of Music at Hulcott

At Hulcott nursing home in Aylesbury, Pip one of our Activities Coordinators loves to bring everyone together when she can and singing and musical activities are firm favourites here with our residents eagerly joining in.

So back by popular demand, another musical afternoon was planned for a good old fashioned sing-a-long. Phyllis and Eileen, two of our residents always really look forward to these sessions and like to have the words in front of them so they don’t miss a note… and they don’t!

We love the pleasure it gives to our residents as well as the team when they sing out with gusto and the sound of music rings out throughout our home.

It’s not just about the music either; we don’t wait for winter at Hulcott to enjoy Snowballs!

Following suggestions from our residents as to favourite drinks from their past, we recently held a ‘Cocktail Hour’ and created some Snowballs using Advocaat and lemonade for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Our residents enjoyed a glass or two of this deliciously creamy drink, which brought back some memories of past social occasions and which prompted half an hour of “what we used to drink.” We now have a long list of possible drinks for future Cocktail Hour events.

We enjoy bringing together a varied activity schedule for our residents and team to get together, keep active and socialise. Following feedback from our residents we can ensure that they participate in activities that they love to do and also try new ones.

At Hulcott care home in Aylesbury we provide the highest standards of specialist nursing and residential care for up to 38 elderly ladies and gentlemen.
