Residents of Seacroft Court Nursing Home in Skegness recently embarked on a fictional journey around the globe.
A weeks worth of events entertained residents as part of a ‘round the world challenge’ set by managing directors at Prime Life Ltd.
The challenge was for each of Prime Life’s homes to choose five different destinations for members of the homes to ‘visit’ and an activity to match each destination.
During the event, staff at the Skegness nursing home travelled to Jamaica on the Monday, where a quiz was held in the morning, followed by a Jamaican barbecue and a visit to Bob Marley’s cocktail bar; complete with entertainment from the nursing home’s very own reggae band.
Tuesday saw a trip to china, where the nursing home natives took part in Tai Chi activities, Chinese massage and watched a few clips about china, ate Chinese food for lunch and celebrated the Chinese year of the horse with an indoor fireworks display.
On Wednesday, the nursing home landed in Turkey, where they played a selection of board games such as backgammon.
Kebabs and salad were served during lunch before an evening of belly dancing.
India was the destination during Thursday, where a cookery lesson took place to make chapati’s for lunch with their curry and rice.
After lunch the residents sat back and relaxed to watch some Bollywood dancing.
The week ended on Friday ‘down under’ in Australia, where residents enjoyed a beach party; playing volleyball and badminton.
Australian style barbecue food was served for lunch and continued with music, dancing and the odd tin of larger or beverage of the residents’ choice.
Manager of Seacroft Nursing Home, Val Evans, said: “It was a tremendous week, everyone enjoyed the challenge and the staff and residents worked hard to make it a success.”
She added: “Without our dedicated staff, this would not have been possible, and a big thank you goes to them all. We already have our passports ready, for next year, but knows where we will end up?”
