Spooky Season Descends Upon Scottish Care Homes

Fife wains are in for a spooky surprise if they trick-or-treat at a local care home. Holmes Care Group residents have been busy transforming their homes into Halloween haunts with ghostly decorations and giant spiders.

Residents adorned their walls with Halloween bunting and dressed up in fancy dress costumes to play themed games with one another.

Preston House in Glenrothes tapped into the autumnal atmosphere by creating a wreath out of pinecones. While Cardenden’s Fernlea House hosted a pumpkin carving contest, where residents channelled their artistic abilities to compete for the top spot.

Holmes Care Group regularly arranges activities around key dates as part of their mission to provide residents with opportunities to stay happy and healthy.

Muriel Brown, resident at Walton House Care Home, said:

“Making the decorations was such fun! Everyone was having a great time spooking each other, it reminded me of my younger years with my siblings.”

Donna Dunsire, Lifestyle Activities Coordinator at Preston House Care Home, said:

“It’s important for us to celebrate events, as it brings the residents so much joy and encourages us all to come together as a community. A scarily good time was had by all!”
