Nelson Lodge care home hosts Grease themed party
A St Neots care home have held a Grease themed party to raise the spirits of residents and colleagues.
The team at Anchor’s Nelson Lodge on Whinfell Close hosted the party for their residents and organised a variety of events based on the iconic ‘70s rom com. While playing all the classics from the iconic soundtrack, the partygoers took part in activities including; Placing the ring on Danny and a Grease-themed quiz.
To add to the occasion, all the care team staff were wearing their best Grease outfits.
Callum Newman, a carer who joined Nelson Lodge as part of Anchor Hanover’s apprenticeship programme earlier this year, helped organise the party, after he and his team had decided to give residents something to get involved in and to enjoy, especially in light of the fact having live entertainment at the home is limited due to the current restrictions.
The residents and staff like to organise big events like this because it’s a way to liven everybody up and have some fun! Grease is always a classic choice, and everybody had a great time in taking part.
It’s so important to organise such meaningful activities for the residents, as this boosts their mental and physical well-being and, of course, it’s fun!!
Jean Barker, 88, who has lived at Nelson Lodge for just under two years, said:
The Grease night was so much fun! I’ve always enjoyed the film and it was just a really nice surprise for us.
“It was very thoughtful, everyone at Nelson Lodge looks after us so well and they’re always thinking of ways to keep us in good spirits!
