Care home is a wonderland

A care home has been transformed into an indoor Winter Wonderland after staff and residents went all out on their Christmas decorations.

Santa’s Sleigh, snowmen, Christmas angels and an elves workshop are just some of the decorations which are on display in Astor Court and Astor Lodge View, a residential and dementia care home based in Cramlington. Residents had fun painting and knitting decorations for the winter scene, which has been set up in the home’s coffee bar and conservatory.

Care manager Mandy Mackley said: “Christmas is a really fun and exciting time at the home. We always plan lots of activities to get everyone in the festive mood so we wanted to create something that would really wow people. Our staff and residents worked really hard on creating the decorations and display, and the result is fantastic.”
