Singers and the Circus at Abbotsleigh Care Home

We’ve had a very busy week of activities here at Abbotsleigh Care Home, as we like to keep a varied social calendar for our residents.

We welcomed singer Megan from the Simon Gross Theatre Company to our Home. She performed a captivating selection of songs from some of the greatest West End and Broadway musicals – including Top Hat, Carousel, The Sound of Music and Mamma Mia – which our residents loved listening to.

We also got busy with our arts and crafts materials, making large paper poppies for Remembrance Sunday, which will look lovely and bright around our Home.

One of the highlights of the week was an outing with five of our residents to Paulo’s Circus at The Millbrook Garden Centre in Staplehurst. The show was filled with clowns, acrobats, aerial skills, magic, wire walkers, jugglers, unicyclists and many more amazing acts. All our residents and staff were thrilled by the performances and thoroughly enjoyed watching the show. A fantastic afternoon out!

Last week saw a number of visitors to our Home, including our hairdresser, singer Kevin Walsh, the RCA horses and our wonderful Pet Therapy dog – all of whom we are always delighted to welcome to Abbotsleigh. We have also enjoyed some residents’ birthday celebrations and gathered together for church services.

We have been outside to pick fruit in our garden and were very pleased to harvest some impressive tomatoes from our greenhouse – yum!

All week, our team have had lots of one-on-one time with our ladies and gents – often sharing a chat over the newspapers or helping with crosswords, which are always a favourite.

And if all those activities weren’t quite enough – we’ve made time to create some spooky decorations for Halloween on Wednesday!
