March 3rd was UN World Wildlife Day: a chance to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. Celebrating 50 years of CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) This ground-breaking legislation has had a huge impact on how the world viewed animals and the natural world.
Heath Lodge wanted to join in the celebrations for such an important day which led to a wonderful event titled Wildlife comes to Heath Lodge.
A full afternoon of activities was planned for the residents in the Cinema Room. It began with a discussion about animals in the wild, a presentation was then given by Sarah McCluskey one of Heath Lodge’s Seniors Carers, the group chatted about how the animals live in the wild and the 10 key facts about each animal, and finally a short video was shown.
Sarah brought in a number of stuffed animals and shared them with the residents, they also had an activity pack, quiz, wordsearch, crossword, and Art Activity.
Sarah who was previously an Activities Co-ordinater said about the event. ”I enjoy thinking outside the box sometimes. It keeps life interesting for everyone. When I see a room full of happy people, I know that all the effort has been worthwhile.”
Carol Preston, Care Home Manger said. “Both staff and residents really enjoyed this event, which was a little different from some the other activities we do. As always the team worked very hard on this event and I applaud their creativity and fresh ideas. My team always goes the extra mile for our residents, and you only had to look around the room today to see how much their efforts were appreciated. We had smiles all around and everyone was so engaged in the activities.”
