Mural Making at Fairfield House

Monday, May 12th, 2014

Residents and Staff alike have been very busy at Fairfield House.

With the help of our creative activities coordinator Nicole, residents have been making fish and shells for a beautiful wall mural.

Nicole has taken inspiration from the 1940′s to hand draw some glamorous ladies and we also have a seaside theme coming to life with 3D textures.

By attaching star fish, shells, buckets and driftwood the effect will be beautiful.

There have also been a number of studies showing how physical environments play an important role in not only the quality of life of those who have dementia but it also aids independence of residents.

Pastures New

As you get older, your hair turning grey.

Life is much harder with each passing day.

Those “Senior Moments” start getting you down.

The fun in your life. No longer around.

 

In your mind, the family, you’re, “putting upon”.

You’re heard to say, “Oh! I was wish I was gone”.

They’ll say to you, “Mum, now don’t give up hope”.

In the back of your mind you know they can’t cope.

 

Social Services tell you, “Now listen my dear

You know it’s not right, that your mother stays here.

Although you agree that maybe it’s not right

You know you’ll feel guilty if she’s out of sight.

 

There’s many will tell you, that isn’t the case.

And why get upset? It’s a much nicer place,

You finally agree, (‘tho your face wears a frown).

And you hope that “the Home” is not far from town.

 

Mum’s home must go, all her treasures too

You are her daughter so it’s all up to you.

Her memories collected through so many years

Will go in the “skip” along with your tears.

 

You scout around locally, to find her a home

Where mum can enjoy life and not feel alone.

Where every carer is so good and kind.

A place like this is sure hard to find.

 

A room freshly painted. It feels nice and new.

A picture framed window, with a wonderful view

Of hills and of valleys and shoreline too.

And through the window the sun’s shining through.

 

So if like our mum you have to move on.

The life that you knew you know now is gone

Don’t moan and grumble or sit there and grouse

Re-locate and be glad you’ve found FAIRFIELD HOUSE.

 

The bills, problems worries are a thing of the past

They will fade from your memory, your mind free at last

Enjoy every day and I know you will find

Your welfare is all the staff have in mind.

 

Tony Fuller 23rd February 2013.
