Worthing Care Home Residents Enjoy an ‘Afternoon at the Movies’

Residents at Worthing care home Linfield House were taken to Hollywood, as staff transformed a room into a cinema and screened the classic movie Easter Parade.

Residents at Linfield House, a dementia with nursing care home which is part of Worthing charity Guild Care, enjoyed the full cinema experience, with ushers offering trays of goodies and popcorn, and showing the cinema go-ers to their seats once they’d presented their tickets.

This rounded off a busy month at the care home, with various activities taking place, including residents baking Easter cakes and enjoying homemade hot cross buns. They also participated in an Easter raffle where residents won lots of goodies and a popular Easter quiz.

Resident Rita, 96, said:
“I love all musicals, they remind me of my time on the stage when I used to perform. You cannot go wrong with a classic movie like Mamma Mia!”’

Resident Liz, 91, said: “The music never ages in movies”.

Linfield House’s Deputy Manager, Michal Kusmierek said: “Our weekly cinema experience is such a fun way for the residents to reminisce and socialise. We try to make the experience as close to the real thing as possible and usually aim to run themed activities around it.”
