Care home uses pies to help residents remember

Resident Audrey Glinsky taking part in National Pie Day activities at Halton View Care Home.

PIES helped care home residents living with dementia to recall their younger days, this National Pie Day.

The smells, tastes and sights of one of the nation’s favourite dishes were used as part of an active minds session at Halton View Care Home, in Widnes, Cheshire.

Staff organised the activity to coincide with National Pie Day – when they asked residents to remember their favourite ingredients.

Cupcake week celebrations at Widnes care home

CHOCOLATE, toffee and raspberry were just some of the flavours on offer on National Cupcake Week at a Widnes care home.

Residents, staff and families at Halton View Care Home, on Sadler Street, enjoyed a tea party and dance to mark the occasion – alongside lots of cakes.

The tasty treats were made by a resident’s family, the home’s cook and other staff members.

Entertainment was provided by singer Junior Davies, who performed a variety of songs from old movies.
