Glasgow Care Home Is All Fun And Games

Residents at Bupa’s Craigbank Care Home, in Glasgow, are enjoying new entertainment and games facilities – thanks to the proceeds of a successful summer fete fundraiser.

The residents made specific requests for a collection of particular recreational items including DVDs, music, books – and a snooker table – from the £500 raised for the home’s activity fund

And the success of the exercise also prompted staff, residents and family members to work together to transform one of the home’s spare rooms into an entertainment hub to house the items.

Plans are also in place to add extra activities such as a dart board, board games and a karaoke machine.

Alan Twigg, Home Manager at Bupa’s Craigbank Care Home, said entertainment facilities are a great way to boost social interactions between residents.

He said: “The home is dedicated to providing residents with the best care and support.

Having a specific entertainment room will be stimulating for residents and give them a great new space to get together, play together and enjoy each other’s company.

We are looking forward to adding even more equipment to the room, allowing the residents to enjoy even more leisure activities.”
