It was Halloween today at the Finchley Memorial Hospital. Lisa decorated the tables with Halloween chocolates and lovely cakes.
Members were also given some colouring crayons and a Halloween picture to colour. Everyone got very busy concentrating on their colouring and produced some really lovely pictures.
We also had a presentation today. Richard Turner from Action Loss Hearing attended to talk to members about the importance of making sure their hearing is checked out. People with hearing problems often feel very isolated and this can also lead to early onset dementia as you become very disoriented. Members were grateful to receive Richard’s talk and Richard also offered to give members a Hearing test. The hospital provided a quiet room on the second floor so that Richard could do the Hearing tests. There were quite a few members who wanted the test.
The session then followed with Halloween Bingo and again this was enjoyable as it was different. Each number that Lisa called was a Halloween shape which had to be coloured by members. The first table to make a line were winners.
It was then time for some quiz questions and Mark our quiz master was ready with some chocolate quiz questions. Questions like What is the name of the 4th Planet. The answer was Mars which is also a chocolate. Members enjoyed the quiz.
It was then time for some singing and as usual the members enjoy. This also included our usual 3 favourite songs which members always get up and dance to.
Lisa finished off the session with a bit of advice for members to make sure they are careful if answering their doors tonight when Trick or Treat callers could also be burglars using this opportunity.
