Notaro Homes show their support for Dementia Awareness Week by hosting activities and attending local events.
Activity Angel visited, residents, staff and relatives joined in playing with Pom Poms and Rainbow Sticks. While dancing to the music!
“Safe to say we all had so much fun!”
Curry Rivel school children, part of the Archie Project, visited the residents. They had been given the task of finding out what are the residents favourite food and drinks.
Residents, children and staff also had fun taking part in this weeks game; to see who could eat sugar jam donuts with out licking there lips!
“Easier said than done!”
Residents really enjoyed having afternoon tea in the garden and flying kites.
Residents and staff decorated the kites during arts and crafts in the morning and flew the kites in the afternoon!
A Red & Yellow Day was held as part of the Archie Project. Residents, relatives and staff each wore something red or yellow to help raise money for Dementia Awareness Week.
They had a best outfit competition, whom the winners were Sue Stephens – Home Manager and also Sam V – Relative. Sue Stephens’ outfit was chosen by the care staff at Immacolata House!

Giant Dementia Awareness Jigsaw
Immacolata House, Cedar Lodge, Aspen Court and Casa di Lusso attended Archie’s giant jigsaw event in Taunton’s Orchard Centre.
100 businesses, schools, care homes, shops and organisations helped create Archie’s Giant jigsaw.
A school choir singing the Archie Song started the afternoon, then Archie himself announced one by one each sponsor of each puzzle piece. Each of our homes had a representative to place their sponsored piece of the puzzle.
Once the puzzle was complete, it was time to celebrate! With music, dancing and treats that were provided by Greggs bakery….
The jigsaw will be travelling to other towns in the not too distant future. Wellington, Bath and Minehead or perhaps a town near you.
