May Update from Llanyravon Court Care Home in Cwmbran
Llanyravon Court Care Home in Cwmbran. In May we completed lots of activities. These mainly involved new activities ideas resourced from Oomph: On-demand. The activities we enjoyed the most were ‘The Artistic’ and ‘The Birds’ booklet. This great new resource allowed all of our residents to get involved. Whether it be colouring, puzzles or fact reading, everyone joined in.
We have many musical residents here at Llanyravon Court Care home in Cwmbran. We conducted sessions that included singing, piano, ukulele playing and lots of hand clapping!
We are so pleased to be back to some kind of normality. Staff have been taking residents out for short walks to soak up the sunshine while it lasts. Our walks included pharmacy runs, walks to the doctors and walks in the local area. When the sun was out, we were outside!
Wild Flower Week 10th – 16th
Residents enjoyed wildflower week with our activities Co-ordinator, Erin. Sitting lovely in the vases were roses, gypsophila, carnations, lilies and a variety of leaves. The flowers looked and smelt gorgeous on our dining room table.
Birthdays at Llanyravon Court Care Home in Cwmbran
Happy 67th Birthday to Bill Paynes! It will be lovely to see bill reunited via video call with loved ones on his birthday while opening presents and cards. Bill thoroughly enjoyed his lemon drizzle birthday cake.
We have recently updated lots of information on our website please go to www.golden-care.co.uk/homes/llanyravon-court-nursing-home/
We had updated guidance throughout the month. Family members are allowed into the home and can visit their loved ones. It felt good to do this after months of relying on video calls for contact. Towards the end of the month, the weather decided to brighten up. As a result of this, we could accommodate more outside visits.
