Bahja coffee morning

on .

Each month Springhill Care Home in Accrington has a get together with the local community. This month the Bahja Initiative joined the home in the Oakhill Lounge.

Mohammed, who works for the charity, and his friends kindly put on a delicious spread of homemade treats for the residents to taste including: pakoras, dates, cucumber, popcorn biscuits and much more.

The residents at Springhill had some quality time with the charity leaders and talked about a variety of topics. Nellie, one of the residents, asked Mohammed about his language and was taught how to say “As-Salaam-Alaikum” – a common greeting in Arabic.

Residents and staff from the home had a fun afternoon laughing and sharing conversation - they can’t wait for the Bahja initiative charity to come back soon.


 

Great Ribble Bake Off

on .

Last week, Springhill Care Home in Accrington held its very own ‘Great Ribble Bake Off’ in the home’s Ribble View lifestyle kitchen.

 

The residents set to work baking an array of goodies from chocolate chip cupcakes to Smarties cookies and flapjacks.

 

After all the hard work, staff and residents sat down with a nice cup of tea to judge their delicious creations.

 

All cakes, cookies and flapjacks were placed anonymously in the middle of the table and once everyone had tasted each, a vote was taken.

 

The result was unanimous, well done to Shannon and Anne for their delicious, winning Smarties cookies!


 

Singing along with Jenny

on .

Recently one of our new performers visited from Liverpool to entertain our residents.

  

Jenny put on a wonderful show with music from the 1940s through to the 1960s with songs like Daisy Daisy, and the classic sounds of Vera Lynn. 

  

All our residents and staff joined in and sang along together in the Woodlands Lounge.

  

A fabulous afternoon was enjoyed by all.

  


 

 

 

Making memories at Springhill Care Home

on .

A colourful display board at Springhill Care Home has become the focus of a new concept – making new memories.

 

Springhill and its staff were keen to break a common stigma of care homes, and demonstrate how the people who come to live at Springhill do so to create new memories.

 

This might be something as simple as a change of daily routine, making new friends, introducing new ways of thinking, learning new skills or even picking up an old hobby which they thought they couldn’t do any more.

 

Springhill has seen so many success stories with this initiative, and we hope to see many more.

 

The display itself was made by our care centre activity staff ably supported by some of our residents who particularly enjoyed looking back through photos taken during 2017.


 

Christmas arrives at Springhill Care Home

on .

All the residents, relatives and staff members got into the spirit of Christmas, singing and dancing along to the songs we all love to hear at this time of year.

 

Will Matthews entertained us with Christmas classics and a few other golden oldies for everyone to sing along to.

 

We also had a special visit from Father Christmas himself to hand out a gift to each of our residents who were either at the party or in their rooms.

 

A big thank you to everyone who was involved, and we looking forward to seeing you again next year.

 

Merry Christmas Everyone
