Friends and families mingled with residents and the local community at Wentworth Court’s autumn fete on Saturday 12 September.
Cheltenham’s first dementia-only nursing home on Village Road opened its doors for an afternoon of family-friendly fun attended by over 100 people.
Nearly £450 was raised from a prize raffle, a home-made cake sale and a bric-a-brac stall while children enjoyed petting miniature Sheltland ponies provided by Catherine’s Carriages.
Activities Coordinator Suzanne Meadows said: “We had a great day with lots of positive feedback about our lovely home, the friendly staff and beautiful home-made cakes.
“We are grateful to all the organisations who donated our prize raffle and to Forget Me Not Jewellery who hosted a stall. The funds will go towards trips for our residents plus we are making a donation to the Willow Trust, who are hosting us on their canal boat later this month.”
Wentworth Court is Cheltenham’s first dementia-only nursing home, offering highly-individualised care, ensuring that each and every resident feels valued, cared for and respected.
