Thursday’s fun and games

As part of their weekly activity program Yarningdale have begun to include a Games Thursday. These activities and games were formed to promote social inclusion within the home and the local community and also helping the residents within the home due to the therapeutic properties of playing these games.

Residents are taken to the local Community Sports Centre, where all residents in attendance are encouraged to take part in games such as bowls and dominoes.

This addition to the weekly activity log was initially planned as a special one off trip, however the residents within attendance enjoyed the games and environment so much it was requested that it be added to the weekly plan of activities.
