Lashbrook House Care Home Has Some Exotiv Visitors!

Lashbrook residents were very curious about the visit of Exotic Animals. As Kevin started to take round bugs snakes, and a bearded dragon. The looks of amazement were so rewarding to see. Especially from our residents with more progressive dementia. The visual and sensory benefits the residents experienced were well worth the visit of Zoolab. A few residents were not too keen, they looked from afar. Margaret Fitch kept asking ‘are they real’?.
Christina Mcmillan said ‘they are beautiful’.

Peggy Nutter who use to be a dancer at  Blackpool Tower Bell , was enthralled and couldn’t stop smiling. Sheila Mitchell commented  ‘ I adore dancing and would like to have like have been a dancer’.

Lashbrook House Care Home Enjoys The Ritz

Lashbrook was transformed into the Ritz Hotel. The Henley College Students, who are helping with events at Lashbrook, organised all the printing of scenes of the Ritz Hotel, which were placed around the dining room. Henley Cancer Research let me hire lots of hats, from them for the afternoon. This caused some excitement, as the residents could choose which hat they would like to wear for the afternoon. Roger our pianist was dressed in his correct attire for the occasion. Quite a few of the ladies looked admiringly, as  he played for two hours non stop. Delicate chocolates were served with the first cup of tea. Then everyone was served finely cut sandwiches, beautiful cakes and fresh fruit.  Rosie Brett was singing the whole time and making actions with her hands. Joan Lewis commented ‘it’s nice to go posh, we have never done this before’. The families remarked they were very appreciative of the hard work that went into this day. They said if was a lovely afternoon.

This was a real team effort yesterday everyone helped.

Taz is a Welcome Addition to Our Home

Taz has been a welcome addition to our home.

He has such a calming influence and has helped reduce signs of stress, depression and anxiety in some of our residents. He provides comfort and unconditional love to them, their families and even the staff when times get tough. 

 We’ve found that Taz has been an incredible comfort to residents and families at the end of life stage. He has the amazing ability to sense when someone is poorly. One example of this is when he slept outside the door of a lady who had reached end of life, and even kept popping his head in around the door almost to check on the lady and her family throughout the nights. He did this up until the day she passed away. Taz also started sleeping in the room of another lady who was at the end of life stage, again staying in the room until she peacefully passed away. He brought great comfort to her family who even mentioned him in a thank you card for the staff!

 Many of our residents have previously had pets including cats and have missed having them around. Having Taz curled up on their lap, watching him stretched out in the sun, or even feeding him his meals has brought back a sense of reminiscence and normality.

Lashbrook House Celebrate St. Georges Day

Lashbrook celebrated St George’s Day. Loui the Chef was St George, Chris and Jullio took turns as the dragon. The English Beef Roast and Yorkshire Puddings went down well with all the residents. After lunch, we sang some stirring hymns from the Ipad. Jersualem, There will always be an England. All the residents sang along, a couple became a little emotional. Michelle then entertained with some upbeat music and singing.

Loui and myself did a little reinactment of St George slaying the dragon. We finished by having a little tipple of mead old English wine. Tom Harman Smith was dancing in the chair. Peggy Nutter who use to be a dancer and relates to dancing mainly, due to her being deaf, danced with great co-ordination. She smiled and clapped. Ida Dunning who has been at Lashbrook for one year, has never danced before. She is normally quite a loner, suddenly she was stood up and wanted to dance.
