Spooky times at The Orchard

At The Orchard Nursing Home in St Albans all the residents, relatives, friends and staff were invited to our spooky Halloween party. Before the party all the residents got involved with making decorations and carving pumpkins to get in the spirit for the day.

It was the idea of the activities team to have the party so everyone could play fun games like guess what’s in the box, where the residents had to stick their hands in and feel around. We had gooey, furry and odd stuff for them to feel. We also had some lovely cakes made by the Chef and the residents got to socialise with one another, be silly and have lots of fun and laughter.

The residents had a lovely time and thanked the activities team for organising the event. We set the lounge up with decorated tables with spooky spiders webs and fun centre pieces. We held this event so that the residents could have a bit of fun, but also so they can just join in the festivities of the season and for those living with Dementia they can get a sense of the time of year.

The Orchard Nursing Home in St Albans, is an attractive purpose-built home providing the highest level of residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 63 elderly residents.
