Cherry Hinton Care Home, Cambridge, had a fun filled week whilst raising money in aid of Alzheimer’s Society. Living by the TLC Care values of truth, love and compassion, the team came together to support those who are living with Alzheimer’s by hosting a week of engaging events and challenges, suitable for all ages and capabilities.
Shelly Prakash, Home Manager commented: “We are pleased to celebrate Dementia Awareness Week at Cherry Hinton. The involvement from the team members, relatives and local community was inspiring and really embraced our ‘one team approach’. We are privileged to help contribute towards the work of Alzheimer’s Society”.
The week started off with a virtual seated exercise class that was streamed live to the local community and other care homes. The team, along with the support and efforts of the residents within the home also held a sponsored walk covering 20 mile; 100 years of dance, where we danced and sang through the ages; a wheelchair walk with residents and to top it off we set ourselves the challenge of 24 hours of spin. Taking it in turns, the team at the Cambridge care home came together to ensure that the spin bike wheel was continuously spinning until the 24 hours was up. Special thanks to Inspired Fitness in Waterbeach, who donated their spin bikes to the care home to use for our event. The residents and team at Cherry Hinton Care Home raised an exceptional £606 in total!
