From 15th – 21st May, it was Dementia Week and here at Groveland Park, we wanted to get involved. We put on a week of fun and exciting things to do, and our residents really loved it.

In addition to our usual weekly activities, we held a community coffee morning, a Bollywood workshop, we were visited by our friends from Safe Haven Animal Rescue, we hosted the Golden Groove Band, we held a Visual Colourful & Interactive Magic Show, we had live entertainment here in our home, a Pilates class and we even had stimulating energizing fun with Gfitness!

We decided to sell handmade knitted brooches like last year, made by our residents and their family members, with all money raised donated to Alzheimer’s Society. Thank you to everyone who made and bought brooches! It really was a great week.
