Music festival success for Buckinghamshire care home
and live on Freeview channel 276
Residents and the team at Care UK’s Maids Moreton Hall, on Church Street, were joined by the people of Buckinghamshire for a special festival to celebrate Care Home Open Week, a national initiative that encourages care homes to open their doors and showcase what life in a care home is really like.
Alongside live music from a local band, guests enjoyed a traditional barbecue prepared by the home’s Head Chef, and to ensure everyone stayed hydrated in the sunshine, the home also treated guests to mocktails and cocktails.
Ioana Almasan, General Manager at Maids Moreton Hall, said: “We were delighted to welcome the local community to our summer festival where we had a fun-filled afternoon which everyone to enjoy.
“For older people, reminiscing about nostalgic events, including festivals and watching live music, can help bring back happy memories, as well as prompting conversation and connection with those around them. For those living with dementia, these positive feelings gained from revisiting fond memories can help decrease stress, reduce agitation, and improve mood too.
“We love to connect and build strong relationships with our neighbours in the community and can’t wait to see them all again very soon!”
