At Adare and District Nursing Home Memory Care Centre one activity that is best loved by all residents is incubating eggs, and watching them hatch into baby chicks. One of our residents, Kathleen, loves the job of each day ticking another day off the incubator calendar, as we all wait patiently for 28 days for the first signs that the eggs are beginning to crack! The excitement and buzz in the home, between residents, staff and families, when hatching is underway, is fantastic - as we all take turns in holding and cuddling the precious fluffy chicks.

Playing cards is a lifelong pursuit that is enjoyed at Mowlam Healthcare nursing homes, around the country. While being great for exercising the mind, our card playing residents love a healthy dose of competition and socialising together, as they did right from their youth. Photographed here are residents Alli and Ester who love nothing more than spending an afternoon at Archersrath Nursing Home, Kilkenny, happily playing and chatting away.

And of course devilishly delicious fresh Halloween treats were made, decorated and devoured!
Our affectionate little Ted has been such an uplifting character in Sancta Maria since he moved in - uplifting for our residents and the entire care team. Ted is a sweet little guy, all he wants is to spread the love, and in return he is patted and cuddled, and patted and cuddled, all the day long

At Kilmainhamwood Nursing Home we work hard to ensure that our residents retain their independence, and we provide a varied diary of events and activities to help them do this, activities that residents enjoyed prior to moving to Kilmainhamwood. Travel/excursions is something the majority of our residents enjoyed so we try and organise as many outings as possible.
