One brick at a time

6 minute read

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.

“Sam and Alan took pleasure in being part of the group and felt a sense of accomplishment for contributing to the construction of the future care facility, Langtree. They can now claim participation in its creation by placing a brick!”

“Male wellness is important, and I couldn’t miss the opportunity to get our men to be involved with the build whilst also promoting male wellness and inclusion.”

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!
