20 Mar YOU NEVER LOSE IT!
When our residents are reminiscing about the past, we some times have to be ‘quick on our feet’ to find the perfect activity to match past interests and hobbies. It was the case at Hilltop Court when everyone involved in Kens care decided that what Ken missed most about being a young man was boxing! With the agreement of his son, a ‘junior’ boxing bag was purchased and is now hanging from the ceiling in his room. When first introduced him to the bag he beamed intensely and said ‘I used to be a boxer’ and ‘boxing therapy’ began there and then! His son said “As soon as I took him to his room and asked him to show me how to use it, the memories came back and he was really happy. Knockout!
