Whittington House Gets Quizzical

On Thursday 31st August, Whittington House Nursing Home in Cheltenham got all quizzical when we hosted a charity quiz night in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society for our residents, relatives, friends and team.

We teamed up for various rounds and enjoyed testing our wits and knowledge with questions about history, music and general knowledge to name a few. An evening buffet of cheese, nibbles, wine and other refreshments were provided throughout the evening.

The evening was a great success and it was all for a great cause! Whittington House would like to extend a special thank you to Sue, a resident’s family member for compering the quiz evening again. She had all the room singing and there was lots of laughter throughout the evening.

Everyone who attended thanked the team of Whittington House for a lovely evening and praised them for doing such a great job.

Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won’t win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer’s Society will be there for anyone affected by dementia – wherever they are, whatever they’re going through. Everything they do is informed and inspired by them.

The Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity. Every day, they work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. They provide expert information, training, and support services to all those who need their help. And they are creating a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.

Thanks to support from companies such as Whittington House, they are able to carry on providing advice, information and care services to the increasing number of families affected by this devastating illness.

At Whittington House we actively promote a dementia friendly community through sharing the knowledge and skills of our staff and as part of our aim to raise awareness within the local community, Whittington House will be hosting FREE Dementia Awareness Events on Tuesday 26th September 2017.

These free sessions are open for anyone wishing to explore what dementia is and to meet others to share your experiences. Click here to find out more…
