Everyone’s Invited to Leeds Care Home Disco Party – Including Those in Their Beds!

There were no barriers to taking part in the silent disco at Nesfield Lodge Care Home in Leeds – even those unable to leave their beds could take part!

The amazing silent disco, led by DJ Pete Goldup aka The Silent Disco DJ, used an innovative long-reach signal that allowed those who find leaving their beds difficult or are uncomfortable with big groups to be part of the rave-up.

Nesfield Lodge staged the silent disco as part of its Dementia Promise, which aims to remove the stigma associated with dementia and encourage a positive approach to dementia care and enrichment through activity, choice and inclusion.

DJ Pete came equipped with disco props, 50 sets of headphones, tassel poms, 70’s heart glasses, a disco ball and strobe lights to give residents the full rave experience!

Sarah Golden-Hill, Manager at Nesfield Lodge, said: “It was amazing that even those who are bedbound or aren’t comfortable in large group settings can still enjoy the party.

“It’s just another way to get our residents up on their feet and moving. They joined our colleagues and guests and had an incredible time singing and dancing the afternoon away.”

Resident’s wife Mary said: “I had a wonderful time dancing with my husband. It brought back memories of our youth together.”

Added resident Thomas: “I enjoyed watching everyone twisting like it was the 50’s again!”

And resident Barbara said: “It was wonderful to listen to some of these songs again, they really brought me back to such happy times.”
