Residents Sam and Alan from Worthington Lake Care Home were delighted after having successfully laid a brick on Millennium’s new build construction project, Langtree Care Home.
Alisha Bromley, Activity Coordinator at Worthington Lake spoke to Project Manager, Paul Durnian about the possibility of some residents laying a brick.
After the conversation, Alisha was delighted when Paul confirmed he could accommodate this special moment for them.
The purpose of this was to offer their male residents a sense of purpose, inclusion and belonging.
With the weather on their side, it was the perfect time for this activity. Fresh air is great for helping to improve people's mood - and when combined with new experiences, can encourage mindful living and cognitive stimulation.
Mindfulness is about living in the moment and noticing the world around you; it can help you slow down, which will help reduce stress.
It was a great experience for all involved, and everyone is excitedly anticipating the completion of Millennium Care’s latest home!
