Elf Day at Beanlands nursing home
Our staff and residents from our Beanlands nursing home enjoyed a special ‘Elf Day’, where staff dressed up as elves and posed for ‘elfie selfies’ with residents, as part of a national fundraising campaign run by the Alzheimer’s Society.
£70 will be spilt between the dementia charity and Beanlands Nursing Home’s own residents’ fund. Residents enjoyed games and a delicious afternoon tea, as part of the festive celebrations.
Michelle Sykes, who is the activities co-ordinator at the home, said: “In previous years we have organised stalls and invited friends, family and members of the local community into our home, but due to Covid we had to scale back activities. That didn’t mean we didn’t have plenty of fun and games though! Our residents were delighted with the creative elf cupcakes and really enjoyed posing for elfie selfies with the team.”
Managing director, Konrad Czajka, from Czajka Care Group, which owns and runs Beanlands Nursing Home, said: “Dementia is a devastating disease that many of us have experience of. The national campaign is an easy and fun way of raising money for this fabulous charity that works tirelessly to make things better for people suffering with dementia. Michelle and the team did a great job of sprinkling elf magic throughout the home!”
