Our moto is “You don’t stop having fun when you get old … You get old when you stop having fun”. There is never a dull moment at Astley Hall. Here is a snapshot of a week showing the things we got up to at Astley.

Apple month!

Residents love being involved with cooking here, and our chef makes sure their favourite dishes are added to the menu. They got stuck in peeling and chopping apples and made delicious apple pies. Conversation turned to Halloween, with toffee apples and some tall tales about apple bobbling techniques. There may have to be a staff v residents Halloween apple bobbing competition!

Time to reminiscing

We dressed up in military costumes to reminisce about World War II. This is always a particularly poignant time of year for residents remembering the impact and devastation of War. It is lovely for us to spend time hearing their first-hand accounts and we raised a glass to those loved and lost.

Beatle-mania reached Astley!

We marked the release of the first Beatles album with a Beatles karaoke. A huge thank you to Ian Boucker for coming in on your day off to host this. Residents were delighted that Ian brought his little boy Arlow along for cuddles and lots of bouncing on knees to Beatles hits. The delight on his little face and our residents was immeasurable.

Ian, you are surely in line for a Wheel of Fortune win! We have a comments and suggestions box where residents, their families and visitors to Astley can nominate who they want to receive a Wheel of Fortune award.

Our team work so hard, not just caring for our residents, but bringing smiles to faces, uplifting hearts and sprinkling happiness throughout our home. The Wheel of Fortune is a way of recognising achievements and is a real boost to staff members.

Out and about

We also got out and about to Bewdley Jubilee Gardens and Bewdley Museum and to the Dementia Café in Stourport.

The weeks ahead…..

We have many Christmas events and activities coming up. Please do give us a call to find out more or pop in for a chat and a cuppa with our residents.
