A residential care home for adults with learning disabilities and physical disabilities in Colchester is getting into the Christmas spirit with activities and festive fun for residents during the holiday season.
The staff at Newlands care home are making sure that no two days are the same for their residents in the lead up to Christmas by providing a variety of engaging activities, including baking chocolate cakes and flower arranging
Building the traditional gingerbread house proved most popular with residents, as they decorated their confectionary cottages with Smarties and Mike-n-Ikes.
Nicola Dolton, service manager, said “We have really enjoyed getting in the festive spirit with our residents after the difficult year that we have had. Both the team and residents loved baking chocolate cakes, flower arranging and building gingerbread houses and we are all very excited for Christmas.”
