Mrs Molin, 9LM Form Tutor reports back from their work in the community

On Thursday 23 May, 9LM visited Laurel Dene Care Home, where they delivered workshops to the residents, including nail painting, board games, finger painting and singing. 
 
At the start of the day, the students had a talk from the Events Coordinator of the Care Home, Dawn about different units and different groups of residents. Dawn talked through the issues of the Dementia Ward whilst students were mature and listened well. Dawn explained it would be a big and hard day. Her advice was to keep in mind the safety and enjoyment of the residents in the students thoughts. Dawn thanked the students for coming and caring for their community.
 
The morning went well. Dawn summed it up saying that that the students were “Very good. You were all a little shy at first but then it was excellent”. 
 
At the start of lunch the students stopped to talk with Dawn about dementia and other conditions and how they affect people. A lot of concern and empathy was displayed by the students. Dawn was really impressed with all students and said they were “wonderful and very respectful of all residents”. 
 
One of the residents spoke about her time at Rectory School (now Hampton High) and was pleased to be working with the school today.
 
Other residents described how they loved being pampered and made to feel feminine and pretty. They made sure that they voiced that to the students. To them, even a matter as simply having their nails painted and eyebrows plucked was something that they do not get to experience often, and this little luxury was much enjoyed and appreciated.
 
The afternoon saw the students doing another round of workshops followed by a sing-along with everyone coming together for an afternoon tea and chat. At the end of the day the students were pleased with how everything had gone, as well as being very tired. These are a few quotes from the students about their experience:
 
“It was a really good experience; a day we won’t forget. At times it was sad but it was nice to help the community” Jess and Aalyiah 
 
“It was fun to see all the residence having a good time and it was really interesting to hear all their stories” Molly and Lillian 
 
“The residents are really sweet and it was nice to have a conversation with different people” Zaki
 
“There was lots of interaction and it was a lovely experience” Jeni
 
The Magager of Laurel Dene Care Home, Suzanne Stewart-Jones said, “I am so glad it went well. When going around the home it was really great to see the interaction between the young and elderly. Please thank everyone involved in the workshops. They did an excellent job.”
