Life at Plas-Y-Dderwen Care Home
Our New Guests
Honey is mostly black with white socks and Flopsie is black with a splash of white on her chest. We use Flopsie and Honey for pet therapy in the home and they seem to be making a real difference. We have seen an improvement in our residents' moods and ability to focus since bringing them into the home. As one of our ladies said, holding them makes her feel happy, and that’s what makes us happy as a home.
We celebrated Burns night on the 25th of January. There were right knees up, the activities team dressed in tartan kilts and the whole home sampled some Haggis with a wee dram.
Elvis Presley's Birthday
The activates team celebrated Elvis Presley’s on January 8th with some fancy dress and karaoke with the residents. They were joined by the manager and deputy manager in showing the residents some dance moves popular to the period.
Team members and residents at Plas-Y-Dderwen are big supporters of pet therapy and always welcome the Little Bug, their friendly Pug.
Here at Plas Y Dderwen, the residents had a fun pottery activity, where everyone enjoyed making clay tiles.
Strike It Up
A resident at Plas-Y-Dderwen really wanted to go bowling again, so we made his wish come true. He was very emotional when he put on his bowling shoes!
