September is National Alzheimers Awareness Month so we have a lot going on for both our residents & their families & friends.
We have 4 Dementia Friends Sessions available for staff and family members to attend, we have a quiz aftenoon with afternoon tea and we have Pyjama day for staff and residents. Rather than focusing on raising money this month, we want to focus on raising awareness. Any money we do raise in the process will be going to the Alzheimers Society. In total we raised over £100 for Alzheimers.
We also held a Macmillan Coffee morning where our residents, family and friends were invited to come and socialise with us. We had coffee and cakes available with a donation box, we raised over £100 for Macmillan.
Aswel as this, we have our day to day activities going ahead, singers coming in to sing for us, and this month, we have a petting zoo bringing in spiders, milipedes & snakes for us to see.
September was a very busy, fun filled month for us here at WillowBrook.
