Life at Wilsmere House Care Home

Rainy Day Games

Tea, cake and some good old fashioned games where the order of the day. What fun we all had playing, laughing and reminiscing about time gone by. Sometimes its the simple pleasures.


Magic Table come to life

Residents are really enjoying our new Magic Table 360. This interactive projector is both sensory and physical. Research has shown what a positive effect it has on those living with a cognitive impairment. The smile it has been bringing to our residents faces is proof enough. 


Getting Crafty

Residents had a lovely morning, making and decorating clay models. Everyone really enjoyed making them and it bought out their creative side. We have decided we will make art and design a regular feature in our life enrichment activities agenda.

Indian Day

Staff and residents at Wilsmere House got the flags out and celebrated Indian Independence Day in style by hosting a ranch inspired party Indian traditional dancing and Indian food on 15th August 2021.

Many residents have visited India and some have family living there so Indian Independence Day was a great excuse to reminisce about previous trips and go on virtual tours to favourite places such as New Delhi, Kolkata etc.  Residents enjoyed movies from the Bollywood as well as dancing to playlists including Bollywood songs. Our home was decorated with themed flags and bunting and we all enjoyed watching Indian cultural ceremonies.

Chef enjoyed cooking up chicken curry, tandoori vegan kebabs, Stuffed paratha and traditional sweets.
