We’ve launched a brand-new campaign, Millennium Moments, which branches out to each home across the group! All the homes have chosen something special to focus on over the next 12 months and we’ll be bringing you the best bits!
Lavender Hills have introduced their ‘Lavender Live Well’ campaign which relates to 10 strands including outdoor and physical activity, music and technology, intergenerational activities, dining experiences, pets, hobbies, and relational care!
The campaign is designed to ensure all 10 elements are met within the home to provide the best experience for their residents.
Lakeside have launched their StimuLake campaign which includes activities to highlight the senses. Their aim is to use sensory stimulation in the home by using everyday objects and gentle activities to help to trigger memories and lessen the feeling of isolation this has also proven to be calming and enjoyable for elderly people.
Sensory stimulation could be something as simple as talking about where you grew up, what your childhood was like or taking a step further and revisiting an area.
Following the introduction of a wellness room, Worthington Lake has launched their Wellness at Worthington campaign, they’ll also be carrying on with MIICH - Male Isolation in Care Homes!
Wellness at Worthington is set to improve the physical and mental well-being in the home for staff and residents. They’ve started morning exercises, bird feeding, and recently introduced a hand signal that means staff can take a breather if they feel overwhelmed.
Norley Hall are introducing Norley Natter, designed to help merge themselves and the local community for greater causes. The events for the campaign will be held in their coffee shop, The Avenue, where they will invite the local community to host workshops for residents, staff and people in the community.
Ranging from craft classes, discussion groups and fundraising meetings with Activity Coordinator Natasha it’ll be a great opportunity for the group to expand on their community links and support.
Finally, Windsor House are working on ‘Windsor Wonderers’ which will tell a story about the voluntary work that takes place within the home to make it as special as it is today.
In the coming weeks, Windsor will be searching for local volunteers giving them an opportunity to make a real difference to their residents’ lives and create heart-warming stories that can be shared across the group.
Overall, these campaigns are introduced to showcase the incredible moments that happen every day across Millennium Care.
