What’s coming up at Magna Care Centre

At Magna Care Centre in Wimborne we have a series of fantastic events planned for our residents, relatives and guests over the next few weeks.

From our regular coffee mornings where you can enjoy a good old chat over a cup of tea or coffee (and of course don’t forget the cake), to visits from our local school, and even our very own Gentleman’s Club, there is always lots to do here if you want to participate and join in.

See below a small selection of just some of the fun events and activities we will be holding here at Magna Care Centre.

Wednesday 31st January: GENTS CLUB
On this day we will have a group of our gentlemen gathered for a social morning with traditional games, cheery chat and refreshments.

Monday 5th February : Canford school
We will be joined by senior pupils of Canford School where residents will be entertained with classical pieces of music using string and wind instruments.

Tuesday 13th February: Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day)
The day will start with some good old fashioned pancake flipping and hopefully avoiding the ceiling in the process!!
Residents will be able to challenge themselves to see how far they can flip and pass to each others plate.
We had soo much fun doing this last year… it has to be done again!
We will also be holding a short talk/quiz about Shrove Tuesday traditions.

Friday 16th February: Chinese New Year. (Year of the Dog)
As last year was such a great success we are attempting to recreate more positive vibes for the Chinese New Year where we will be celebrating with quirky chopstick games, zen drawing and other fun tasks. The residents will also be enjoying a Chinese meal and joined by members of our activities team.
We will also theming and decorating the lounge and restaurant areas with Chinese balloons and other decorative items – it’s going to look great.

Monday 19th February: The Lady in White.
The Lady in White will be entertaining us again with her talent to make music all together. Residents have the opportunity to make beautiful sounds using drums, bells, bongos and more! We can all sing along together and make a wonderful sound.
This has proven to be one of our residents most favourite things to do.

and lots, lots more…
