Lashbrook Houses Summer Fete 2017

Lashbrook enjoyed their Summer Fete in the sunshine. We had a shop, an art stall, an Avon stall, a cake stall, also Daphne Stoddard had a stall for Parkinson’s. Robert Stoddard (one of our residents),  is a very good artist and she sold cards in aid of this very good charity. Elvis sang to all the residents. There was some dancing and singing all afternoon. The Mayor of Henley attended with her Escort. David, he amused everyone with his magic tricks as he is a member of the magic circle. The Tombola which was run by our volunteer, totally sold out. Our raffle with all prizes donated from Henley shops, was very successful. All resident’s families commented on what an enjoyable day. Also the Mayor made a speech and said this is a lovely care home, the atmosphere is so jolly and the residents look very happy.

Dave and Loui the Chef at Lashbrook put on a delicious barbeque, with mixed continental salads, followed by cheesecake and fresh fruit salads.

The M.S. art class also had a display of pictures painted by the M.S. group and our residents. This promotes very good social interaction whilst everyone joins in with the painting theme.

Terry Cruises into Lashbrook House to Entertain!

What an entertainer. Terry use to entertain on the cruise ships. Vicki the Home Manager introduced him to Lashbrook.  He has such a charismatic personality. The residents really enjoyed his singing and performance. Not only is he happy to entertain all the residents, but he gets all the staff involved as well. Terry is very bubbly and has a new programme each time he entertains. He is now on our books for regular visits.

Tom Harman Smith commented ‘ he is such fun’.

Lashbrook House Care Home Visit Henley River

Lashbrook House residents enjoyed a picnic out at the Henley River. We were joined by Elvis Presley singing along the river before the opening of the regatta. We did some stretch and relaxation as the weather changed. Robert Stoddard commented that he ‘enjoyed being out for the day.’ Mary talked about her brothers and how they use to have picnics on the farm, when they were little.

Sixties Success at The Mount Care Home in Wargrave

We enjoyed a 1960s ‘Peace and Love’ BBQ whilst we danced the day away to 1960s tunes from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys, the Monkees just to name a few.  Other activities planned for this month include tie dying T-Shirts, a 1960s poem, 1960s reminiscence sessions.
