Residents and staff at Barchester’s Upton Bay Care Home, Hamworthy, Poole, enjoyed getting dressed up in their festive finery to mark Elf Day, a national initiative from the Alzheimer’s Society.
Organised by Wellbeing Activity Lead, Karen Grant A’Court, residents of Upton Bay, adorned in elf hats, ears, and Christmas jumpers, enjoyed a day of yuletide music and active games.
“Everyone has truly loved getting into the spirit of Christmas, and for such a worthy cause close to our hearts, being a dedicated dementia and Alzheimer’s care home,” commented Karen.
Staff brought a little joy to each resident with their sparkly elf hats, big and small, with some of the care home team pulling out all the stops with their Noel-inspired outfits for the day.
Ivy, resident, said, “It’s a perfectly good reason to look a little bit silly for the day; my pointed ears turned a few heads!”
