December’s Events

Christmas is the loneliest time of the year for more than 1.5 million older people, research suggests. A study by the charity Age UK found the bereaved are hit hardest, with more than 750,000 widowed people feeling isolated over the festive season.

Which is why here at The Chace, our door is always open with mince pies readily available! We’re all looking forward to the festivities of December and very much look forward to welcoming all our residents’ family and friends to The Chace during the month. 

Birthday greetings for December go to Margaret on the 5th, Ann  on the 7th, and Barbara on the 14th

Activities with TOFF this month include, singing for the Brain, take a trip down memory lane, pet therapy with the guinea pig and dog walking, Past and Present – share a memory and Cinema Club, these will be in either the Blue Lounge or wherever the biggest group gathers.

These are our core of activities which often involve 3rd parties and happen on certain dates.  However there are a vast number of other contacts which centre around individuals and their needs which are not scheduled but take place at any time.  These include such things as  housework; perhaps wiping up some plates or helping to fold towels.  We also encourage and support residents in looking after our little group of animals, perhaps by preparing their food.  There may be shopping trips or a short, local walk.  An individual need might also be to share a cup of tea and a chat or to listen to music which might evoke their younger days or happy (or sad) memories.  We may need to offer comfort, support and re-assurance at times when people are unhappy or just confused.  Help with reading letters or newspapers is also an important way of supporting our residents to keep contact with their families and the wider world.  Overall our aim is to promote actively the mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of our residents by providing a stimulating, supportive environment which respects their dignity, listens to their wishes and responds to their needs.
