Thread: Derbyshire dementia care home postcard project 'spirals'

  1. #1

    Default Derbyshire dementia care home postcard project 'spirals'


    A care home for people living with dementia has been inundated with holiday postcards following an appeal.

    Staff at Cedar Court care home in Bretby, Swadlincote, asked for holiday stories in July and has received about 1,000 to share with residents.

    The postcards have come from UK resorts as well as Taiwan, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the US.

    Louise Baker, from the care home group, said the project "spiralled" after an appeal on the home's Facebook page.

    And another one from a MH group on Facebook:

    Hi I'm hoping the kind hearted members of the group can help me out.
    I'm the Activities Coordination at a Care Home in Lymm, Cheshire, over the summer we are running a project involving holiday postcards, these are a great way to stimulate conversations by triggering memories of holidays and places visited.
    If anyone else would like to send our residents a postcard from their holiday destination or any local landmarks please do and I can guarantee they will make a difference to some ones day.
    Postcards can be sent to

    The Residents
    Cheshire Grange

    Lymm, WA13 0EG
    Thanks in advance
    Jo ...Activities Coordinator 😊 x
