We are delighted to welcome new team members to The Chace this month. Stuart joins us as a Domestic Assistant and Sholly and Bency join our wonderful Care team. We are also excited to welcome Kate who will lead our Activity team. Kate has lots of interesting and exciting ideas to explore with our residents and has been busy planning new and innovative ideas.
One of the new activities Kate has actioned has been Balloon Football/Tennis. Balloon sport is an easy, social game which is great for gross motor skills and suitable for all different levels of cognitive and physical abilities. Even residents who can not participate in the game physically, can enjoy watching the game, following the balloon with their eyes.
Not only is it great fun, but participation can help foster connections between residents and between staff and residents. It can lessen anxiety and help people living with Dementia feel more engaged with life.
We can’t wait to see what is next! Of course activity suggestions from family members are always welcome.
