It has been an exciting few months at Sandy Banks, we welcomed a new Activity Coordinator to the team – Tracey who has arranged many fun and engaging in house activities for the residents. Most recently we had a harpist musician visit the home, it was relaxing event where those who wanted could try out their own musical skills and have a play on the harp or they could sit back and listen to the lovely tunes. Music therapy has been found to have an extremely positive effect on those suffering with Dementia and the day was enjoyed by all.
We were also extremely proud of the staff team for being nominated and winning the Carer of Year award from the local business, Bretherton Funeral Home. They visited the home and awarded three members of the staff team with the award. It was lovely to see the staff team at Sandy Banks receive recognition for the hard work and commitment they display daily to the residents of the home.
