Sing Along Time

Residents took part in a rousing sing along session.

It consisted of a wide selection of popular songs led by Dee Rivers, who accompanied them on the keyboard. The home also played host to ‘Recollections’, a show from Ashford-based singer Scott Jenner. His informal style and great rapport with the residents always proves very popular.

We were also visited by singer Carol George, who always delivers a popular selection of songs from a wide range of eras and genres. This provided plenty of opportunity for our residents to sing along and join in with the fun.

Pet Therapy and Goodbye to Harvey

Every month Pet Pals visit Ashridge and bring along different types of animals for residents to see and handle.

On one of their recent visits they brought some adorable kittens, which are probably one of the most popular animals to visit the home. There were four kittens, two ginger, one black and one tabby and they proved to be a great success as they made the residents laugh with their mischievous antics. They were also quite happy to be handled by the residents which was lovely to see.
