Residents living with dementia at a specialist Cheltenham nursing home enjoyed a country and western afternoon.

The 62 residents have been reminiscing about bygone times when they would watch Saturday matinee cowboy films from in their childhood and making props ahead of the event, including a jail house and hobby horses.

The team took up the opportunity to get into the Western spirit by dressing up and entertaining the residents with line-dancing, choreographed by administrator, Kim Smith.

Wellbeing Manager, Suzanne Meadows said: “We chose to have a Country and Western afternoon because through our discussions with residents around musical preferences, we have found that many enjoy country music, so it seemed a logical event to host.”

“Events like these are important for our residents for many reasons including encouraging people to get together socially for fun, to talk, laugh and reminisce as well as move and dance, promoting physical wellbeing.

“When residents come to live with us, we help them to live full and active lives; life continues regardless of a diagnosis of dementia.”

After taking to the floor, residents enjoyed a BBQ in the home’s gardens including burgers, ‘slaw and steaks, prepared by the home’s chefs.
