Staff and residents at Scarborough Hall care home decided to invite the local nursery children along for the day. Everyone got involved by dressing up as characters from their favourite books and we read the children’s favourite stories. .

Jessica Larkin the Activities Co-ordinator at the home commented: “Our residents all love to read and to talk about their favourite books so World Book Day is a fantastic opportunity for us all to spend the day with our noses in our favourite books. Having the children come to visit us made it even more fun, we all loved seeing their costumes.”

Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.
