Dementia Action Week took place from the 13th to the 19th May2024. We were proud to support and participate in this special week that focuses on a topic so close to all our hearts at Harbour Healthcare
Our care homes were encouraged to take part by hosting activities and events that are enjoyable/beneficial to people living with dementia. Our care quality team came up with a huge list of ideas from storytelling, crafts, intergenerational play to practicing mindfulness – just to list a few!
We also hosted the ‘best forget-me-not flower display’ competition! Thank you to all who got involved; such hard work and creativity was put into all the displays! It was a difficult decision, but well done to our joint winners – Treetops Court Care Home and Cromwell Court Care Home! A special mention also goes to Ty Gwynno for their touching poem written and recited by their residents. You can watch the video below to see all the entries.
