A song for Newgrange

A message from all of us at Newgrange Residential Home

Gratitude for our large happy family!

Newgrange Residential Care Home in Cheshunt, is working extremely hard to protect residents during the coronavirus crisis. Our talented staff are also focusing on keeping a positive atmosphere in our home to lift everyone’s spirits. We were lucky enough to have a 90th birthday to celebrate over the weekend.

The carers rose to the challenge and filled our home with 90th helium balloons and organised a tea party for 20 of our residents. Living together under one roof means we are able to celebrate like an extended family during these challenging times. As one resident said: “I feel so lucky that I am able to be on lock down with all of you, I would be so lonely at home by myself.”

Dementia Action Week

To mark Dementia Action Week we had a flower power party at Newgrange Care Home in Chesthunt. We invited an opera singer, Isobel Bradshaw, to sing to our residents and resident’s families. We transported our residents back in time to the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. With an array of music we were able to capture memories for all of our residents. It helped lift everyone’s mood as we sang, danced and tapped our feet along to the music.

We then enjoyed some gardening for our ‘flower power party’ and potted plants to help brighten up our gardens. Everyone enjoyed a glass of pimms, sausage rolls and sandwiches. It was a great afternoon to focus all of us on the issues of Dementia, that touches many of our resident’s lives.
