Star of popular BBC crime drama, Vicky McClure, put together a choir of people aged 31-87 with dementia, to prove the therapeutic effects of music.
Dementia can be challenging to handle, not only for the person suffering with it, but for the carer as well.
A very special opportunity to treat your Mum this Mother's Day if she is living with us at OAC!
Today we say goodbye to Valerie Jourdain from our team, Val has sent us a lovely message which you can read here!
With Christmas on the horizon, we thought it would be a great idea to get our residents to help make some festive treats!
This week the residents have enjoyed decorating their own gingerbread men with the help of staff. They also joined in decorating the home ready for the festive season!
"I am a qualified nurse myself and have seen and worked in a number of homes but have never seen such an amazing bunch of people in my life, they are truly wonderful. Affinity care should be proud of their home and their staff as they are second to none and in this day and age with so many negative reports on care homes it is refreshing to write so positively about your home. Thank you all"
"Whatever the future holds I know my wife would never be looked after better than she was at Old Alresford cottage"
"All the staff and residents made Mum feel really at home and I feel secure in the knowledge that she was safe and well cared for. Please pass on our thanks to the whole team"
