Residents and colleagues at Patchett Lodge Care Home, Holbeach enjoyed a delightful Last Night at The Proms themed party last week as part of a challenge set by Live Music Now and the Care Quality Commission.

The home was wonderfully decorated in Union Jacks and residents were provided with hats and flags to help create a Proms style atmosphere whilst enjoying a range of classical music pieces.

The home’s catering team created some delicious cakes and treats for the event and residents thoroughly enjoyed coming together to enjoy a superb afternoon of music and singing.

Taking part in music can have a great impact on social and emotional wellbeing and quality of life. A number of OSJCT homes across Lincolnshire are working with Live Music Now to bring music and singing into our homes more regularly as part of a project called “A choir in every care home”.

Look out for more news about this project over the coming weeks.
