Sunday 14th November is Remembrance Day (although 11th November is officially Armistice Day) when many of us will stop to think on the sacrifice made by so many in conflicts across the world.
For our residents, it will be a time for personal reflection… on times past, those they may have lost during the dark days of war but also some of the happy times they shared with friends and loved ones. Anniversaries, such as this, are often a prompt for those with dementia or Alzheimer’s to talk about their experiences.
We will give all of our residents the time and space to remember but also be close by to provide comfort and support.
Those who wish to do so will be able to watch the Remembrance Service on TV. There will be poppies ‘a plenty, proudly displayed, possibly even a few medals. And we are sure that tea and cake will feature heavily.
