The Oakhill Mansions team decided to take music to another level. They managed to get an electric drum set, and it has been popular between the residents and the staff. After a recent piano arrival, they are just a bass guitar away from their own Oakhill soft rock band. You can see a short clip of “the rehearsals”.
Residents and staff from Arbour Walk decided to support Alzheimer’s society by organising a Memory Walk in their neighbourhood.
Despite a few cancellations due to poor weather conditions, it didn’t stop them from completing the walk on a beautiful sunny Saturday, the 9th of October.
We want to thank all participants who came and supported our residents with the trip. They managed to walk a couple of miles and raise fabulous £435 for the Alzheimer’s Society from your kind donations.
Please see below a small gallery from the Memory Walk:
Yesterday at Oakhill Mansions Nursing Home we had an exciting visit from Bristol Zoo Gardens. Our residents and staff had the pleasure of meeting Lilly, a very friendly spider, a Giant Tiger snail, a glamorous stick insect and a lovely pair of giant cockroaches. Our residents bravely held and stroked all the animals and learned a lot of interesting facts about them.
The Zoo to You Sessions will continue this and next week around all of our care homes in Bristol.Photo gallery
