Rivendell care team elf around for Alzheimer’s

Rivendell View care home in Stoke Bardolph has held an Elf Day to spread some Christmas cheer to residents and fundraise for Alzheimer’s Society.

To celebrate Elf Day, on Friday 3rdDecember, the care team dressed up as elves and organised a number of elf-themed activities for residents.

The event was organised as part of Alzheimer’s Society’s UK-wide festive fundraising initiative.

The care team organised elf word searches and quizzes and invited residents to wear elf hats and light bulb necklaces. The care home chef, Liv Capone, also created an incredible elf cake which was then raffled off to raise money for the charity.

Rivendell resident, Gordon Bishop, said: “Elf Day was lots of fun and we all enjoyed having our photos taken wearing elf hats. The elf quiz was good fun too and we all felt very festive.”

Jody Gore, lifestyle manager at Rivendell View, added: “Elf Day was a great success and our residents really got involved and had lots of fun. We were delighted to raise £50 for Alzheimer’s Society by raffling off the cake.

“Elf Day will certainly be back next year and we hope to make it even bigger and better.
