Chinese New Year Celebrated at Crick Nursing Home in Caldicot
Chinese New Year was a wonderful celebration here at Crick. We finished the day with a local Chinese takeaway. While we had our delicious dinner we watched the celebrations of the festival on the big screen. From decorations to making to the fortune cookies, we had the best time. We focused on new beginnings and welcoming the year of the Ox. Residents were all keen to find out their Chinese animal. We have many sessions working on the different animals and their meaning. The amazing festival of light and fireworks were watched in ore. All while we tucked into some great dishes full of flavour.
Our valentines quiz was a huge hit! We can announce that the winner was Margaret. The winner was especially pleased. Our winner said “It was great to use to my brain and learn new things I didn’t know, proving you are never too old to learn”.
Building Bridges Pen Pal scheme
We teamed up with the Monmouthshire ‘Building Bridges Pen Pal scheme’. This was set up to help in the fight against loneliness during these difficult times. Residents were paired with isolated people in the community. Communication were via letter, email and pictures. We have established the foundations for a exciting new pilot project. This will develop into something for all to enjoy in the future.
