Forget-me-not Collage Creation

The team and residents put together a beautiful collage of hand-made forget-me-nots with notes from the team and residents of what is important for them not to forget. There were two common themes family and pets, one gentleman wrote “my wife, my dog and my newspaper” another wrote simply “my sons” and others alongside family wrote about what they enjoyed including flowers and knitting.

The Importance of Dementia Diagnosis

The team also put together a display about this year’s theme which was the importance of diagnosis and how one in three people living with dementia do not have a diagnosis. It was great to have the whole home involved in this important awareness week.
