We held two very successful events at Bridge View House that we thought we might share with you; the Butterfly Café and Pet Therapy. The Café was well attended and residents loved the animals who came to visit and we even made friends with some lively geese!

Our newly named ‘Butterfly Café’ (formerly Dementia Café) met on Tuesday 23rd October and was very well attended. This is a two-monthly event led by our Activities Co-ordinator, Shona Kerwin. A lovely Halloween themed spread of home baking, courtesy of our resident cook – Shirley price, was a big hit with the residents’ families who attended.

We meet again on 17th January and we hope for a great attendance like yesterday.

The Butterfly Café takes place every few months and gives family and friends a safe place to talk about the challenges they face with their loved one’s dementia.
