Residents enjoyed a game of lawn bowls in the garden area. Seated in chairs, residents sat safely as they competed with one another to see who could win the prize. Some healthy competition was generated as was lots of fun and laughter – and a healthy thirst and appetite.
Bingo with Bruce exemplifies Beaumont Care’s Philosophy – “Our residents are special and our personnel, key”. Bruce, one of our very active residents, runs the bingo session on a Tuesday afternoon. Bruce has a great sense of accomplishment while running these sessions and really looks forward to assisting residents win prizes.
