Care Home Takes Residents on Trip Down Memory Lane with Carnival Games

A Middlesbrough based care home set up carnival games for residents for them to reminisce about their younger days.

Activity coordinators at MHA Montpellier Manor organised the day and set up a whole host of activities for residents.

The home offers residential and dementia care for up to 85 people and used the front garden to set up the activities.

Games such as coconut shy, hook a duck, ring toss and plenty of music were a constant throughout the day.

Steve Moran, one of the activity coordinators said:
“We wanted to use the lovely weather and set up something to get all residents involved in.

“Bev and I, the other activity coordinator have both recently joined Montpellier Manor and wanted to do something where we can utilise the resources we have in the home.

“The residents really enjoyed the activities and being outside really helped them.

“We even had some family members join in and some of the games did become competitive which was nice to see.

“Overall, it was a very enjoyable day, everyone had a lot of fun, it was very easy to set up and it’s something we will definitely look to arrange again.”
