Care home residents’ memory walk

UPTON Bay care home in Hamworthy took part in a memory walk open to residents, their families and the local community.

Those taking part walked around the circumference of Hamworthy Park and afterwards enjoyed refreshments in the cafe.

Activities lead Karen Grant A’Court organised the event and also completed the official Bournemouth Alzheimer’s memory walk, a 7.5km memory walk from Bournemouth to Canford Cliffs, a few days later.

Upton Bay care home general manager Mevin Sohorye said: “At our home we care for a lot of people living with dementia and provide support for them and their families.

“We have a Memory Lane Community, an environment purposely designed to help those with dementia live active and meaningful lives.”
