In our October exercise sessions we have joined with Gloucestershire NHS in Falls Prevention Week, where we have concentrated on strength and balance, this has been a very popular activity, which will be ongoing in our activity planning. 
 
October is a great month for art activities, using the fallen leaves to create beautiful pictures and other Autumnal decorations. 
 
We have celebrated Halloween and have held a spooky day, enjoying lots of fun games, and awarding the prize for the best fancy dress, staff included. 
 
We also had Reverand Ireland for the monthly service, and local singer Terry Osbourne who hs been entertaining us us with some lovely Country & Western music.

What have we been up to this month? 
 
 
July 2020 has been fun-filled here at the elms. 
 
we are now in full swing of our 2 weekly Meaningful activity program, where we have had innovative activities in each of our clubs, and on-going monthly projects.  
 
Families may have noted we have a monthly newsletter sent out, though this section of our website will have a weekly update and photos. 
 
from pebble painting, to Theatre nights (with ice cream intervals of course) we have had such a variety going on! with the intention to try to have an activity that each person will be keen to partake in.  
 
Each day differs in activities, though our approach includes the use of each of our 5 senses to try to connect with the individual in a way most appropriate for them.  
 
this month we have two projects: The Elms post service for profile posters and our monthly 'avon' branded bingo. There will be more information and pictures on these next week... 
 
 
Our June 2020 project... 
The Elms tree of wisdom 
 
THROUGHOUT THE LAST MONTH AT OUR HOME, OUR RESIDENTS HAVE BEEN DEDICATING TIME AND USING THEIR SKILLS TO CREATE OUR "ELMS TREE OF WISDOM". 
 
THIS HANDCRAFTED TREE INCORPORATES EACH RESIDENT'S HAND PRINT AS THE "LEAVES" OF THE TREE, WITH A MESSAGE/PIECE OF ADVICE AT THE BOTTOM OF THEIR LEAF. 
 
THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN CONDUCTED IN OUR WEEKLY MEANINGFUL ACTIVITY TIMETABLE, AND HAS BEEN THE MAIN FOCUS IN BOTH OUR GARDENING AND OUR ARTS & CRAFTS CLUBS. 
 
OVER THE MONTH, OUR RESIDENTS HAVE EACH DONE AS MUCH AS THEY HAVE WISHED TO, SO WE CAN PROUDLY SHOW OFF THEIR WORK IN OUR HOME. 
 
 

8th May 2020: VE-Day Celebrations  

Today we celebrate VE Day, as 75 years have now passed since World War II was declared over. 
 
Here at The Elms, we have those who lived and worked through these days. 
 
The period that we can only learn about in British history, they have the true, lived, experience.  
 
Therefore, on this day we appreciate what they did for our country. 
 
Here is a montage of our celebration at The Elms. Enjoy...! 
 
Dear All 
 
We are organising a project here at the Elms to celebrate every care home, every resident and every staff member by singing from our balcony: 
 
Thursday, the 9th of April, 2020 at 2.30.  
 
We are inviting all care homes to join us to boost the morale of all at this uncertain time. 
 

 ...and here is the video of the event:
