Ledbury Brain Injury Unit Hosts Caribbean Day

A Brain Injury Unit in Ledbury hosted a Caribbean day with both staff and residents getting involved.

With restrictions on holidays still in place, Market Lodge thought they would bring a taste of the Caribbean to proceedings, with a jam-packed day of fun, games and fancy dress.

Residents made their own costumes and helped with the props. As well as pinatas, a Zumba session and food and drinks, there was bingo lingo, crafts and a photo booth to capture the wonderful memories.

Juls Simpson, service manager at Market Lodge – which is run by Shaw healthcare – said: “Lockdown has been particularly tough for our residents here as they go out often and following a residents meeting and discussing holidays, they decided this is what they wanted to do. Games were specifically designed to set residents up to succeed in line with their cognitive needs and they all won prizes which when down really well.”
