Holly Reynolds, our Deputy Head Girl has been applying the skills learned in BTEC Health and Social Care, by volunteering in a care home in Langland. Holly says ‘I am chatting to residents daily, with a vast majority suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer’s, each resident has a different need, with some bed bound, and others speeding around the place with zimmers!’
‘I’m currently making templates for the outside of the resident’s rooms, including a photograph of them, their former work employment and room number, I am also doing activities with them, to ensure those smiles never stop!’
The following picture shows Holly chatting to Betty from Brynfield Manor Care Home. Well done Holly, keep up the good work!!
