Castleford Lodge Care Home Residents Enrol at Wakefield College

Residents of Castleford Lodge Care Home in West Yorkshire have been given the opportunity to enrol into Wakefield College’s remote learning programme. The local college provided the home with all the items they needed for their very first creative activity session including photo frames, pressed flowers and glue so they could decorate their frames in their own unique way.

The residents were so eager to create lovely photo frames that they got a little bit messy during the process, but everyone was thrilled with the outcomes. They all posed alongside their frames for their individual pictures that were sent to Wakefield college as proof of participation.

Resident Princess Baldwin told staff during the lesson that she “really enjoyed getting creative and thoroughly enjoyed the activity”. Even though she is blind, Princess completed her photo frame with decorative rose petals and with assistance from care home staff and she was able to celebrate her achievements alongside the other residents.

Amanda Woolford, Home Manager, said “the activity staff at Castleford Lodge work very hard to provide a varied recreation programme to encompass individual needs”.
