We recently had the opportunity to put on a Retail Therapy morning for our residents in the Recreation Hall. Residents from all four of our facilities were able to pick up some bargains from Bloom’s Pharmacy, Ma and Pa’s Fashion, and The Body Shop.
The residents were assisted by family and staff to try on clothes and shoes, with some lucky enough to receive a relaxing hand massage with some of the scented hand creams at the Body Shop Stall.
After a morning of shopping, the residents sat together and enjoyed a cuppa, cake, and a chat. It was a successful morning, and we are looking forward to potentially setting up some stalls in each facility for special events such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Our next Facility Group Day will be on Thursday 28th March where residents will be able to watch (and participate if they wish), in some Latin Dancing. Residents will also have the opportunity to book private dance lessons at a later date.
Thank you to the staff from Bloom’s Pharmacy, Ma and Pa’s Fashion, and The Body Shop for making this day so special for our residents.
