We do like to be beside the seaside … at Magna

This week at Magna nursing home in Wimborne we held a seaside themed day and were blessed with a really sunny day which set it off nicely.

Our very talented Becky, one of our health and wellbeing coordinators, drew and painted an old fashioned seaside photo booth and a surround for our TV through which we played a Punch and Judy show.

We had cornets to eat, peppermint rock and candy floss to try and several props to aid memories.

We also played sounds of the sea through our speaker and got everyone to shut their eyes, listen then share their memories of childhood holidays with us. We heard stories about Rhyl, Blackpool, Margate and Swanage to name a few.

Doris told us of trips in a charabang and knitted swimsuits which stretched in the water. Other things which were mentioned were picnics, donkey rides and fish and chips in news paper.

Our lovely chef Joe put on Hot Dogs, Fishfingers and Prawn salads for lunch to carry on with the ‘holiday’ feel. A grand time was had by all.

The Magna nursing home in Wimborne is a stunning Care Centre providing residential and specialist nursing care for up to 63 elderly residents.
