I ran a small competition in my Facebook Group Bright Copper Kettles CIC - Care Home Activities last week.
I received some wonderful photos which really helped to cheer me up.
This is the winning photograph - Entitled Christine Sparkles - I really felt the title was app and I'm sure you'll agree that Christine does indeed sparkle.
Congratulations to Holmes Care Group who swept the board, winning 1st, 2nd & 3rd place.
I loved this photo too;

Reviewing the Autumn activities with the use of photographs is really rewarding and a great way to support your evidence of residents engaged in, and enjoying, stimulating activities.
And during these particularly difficult times they are a lovely way to share your activities with families and friends who will really appreciate the opportunity to see what your care home family is getting up to each day.
What a fantastic photo Beer Pong shows the joy of taking part in an activity just for the fun of it.
Of course, there are other benefits; socialisation, gross motor skills, concentration and the exhilaration of competition to name but a few.
As you can see, it was a difficult choice, even having chosen my three favourites, to put them in order was super hard.
The homes with winning photographs will receive some great prizes:
1st PRIZE - 45 mins call with me - increasing activities during a pandemic
2ND PRIZE - 1 hour call with me - activity planning session for the season
3RD PRIZE - Fiddle Muff Sensory Hand Warmer from Memory Care Store
