HenPower Launch with Equal Arts at Tye Green Lodge

An inspirational project tackling loneliness among older people and those living with dementia has moved into a care setting in Harlow.

Creative ageing charity Equal Arts has teamed up with Tye Green Lodge to bring its award-winning HenPower project to residents and staff.

First piloted in the North East, the project combines hens and creativity to reduce loneliness and improve the wellbeing of older people and those living with dementia.

The Cubs Help Out at Mountbatten Lodge

A huge thank you to Billy, the grandson of one of Mountbatten Lodge’s residents, and his Cub friends; they did a fantastic job helping with the home’s National Care Home Open Day, raising over £40 and making a lovely afternoon extra special! At the end of the day, they were proud to be presented with their own Quantum Care badges as thanks for all of their hard work!

Baking at The Fairway

Residents at The Fairway have been trying out a few Mary Berry recipes! They made fork biscuits and cupcakes to enjoy with tea and a bit of music. The recipe was clearly a good one since the freshly baked treats were gone before anyone had a chance to get a picture of them!

Oomph Wellness

Last week we celebrated the launch of our new Oomph Wellness programme! Each of the 15 care homes now running the exercise sessions hosted their own launch event, joined by friends, family and neighbours. All 15 homes have staff fully trained to deliver the activities and support residents and day centre members in taking part. Members of the public are also welcome to come into their local home to join in for just £2 per session! This is a fantastic way of staying active in older age and getting to know your community’s care home better.

Farewell to Beryl!

Last week, the Training Team held a fund raising coffee morning for Dementia UK as a lovely way to say goodbye to team member Beryl, who is moving to Warwickshire. They raised a fantastic £150 for this excellent cause and were joined by the staff at head office to enjoy delicious cakes and wish Beryl all the very best for the future. Beryl has been a wonderful dementia trainer and we would all like to wish her good luck in everything she goes on to do!
