Wear it pink at our Vintage Afternoon Tea Party
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so we’re doing our bit here at Ryefield Court – that’s why on Friday 19th October from 3pm - 5pm, we’re throwing a Vintage Afternoon Tea Party here in our home, and we’d love for you to join us and wear it pink.

There’ll be tea and cakes at the event, along with some wonderful entertainment, and we really would appreciate your support for this very deserving cause to help fight a disease that touches so many people’s lives. All we’re asking for is a donation of £2 per person, which will go towards helping to make cutting-edge breast cancer research happen; thousands of people across the nation will also be wearing it pink in their communities, schools and workplaces for the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now.

Breast Cancer Now has raised over £31.5 million for life-saving research so far, and we want to help them add to this. We’re wearing it pink on 19th October for breast cancer research and a for a future where everyone with breast cancer lives – will you join us? We hope to see you then for what’s sure to be a fun, feelgood afternoon.

Sponsored skydive for Alzheimer's Society
On Friday 5th October, Katy from our Events team here at Ryefield Court will be taking on the challenge of a 15,000ft skydive! And it’s all in aid of Alzheimer’s Society. Katy is aiming to raise £1,000 for the charity, and we’d really appreciate your help in reaching her target for this fantastic cause. Here’s a few words from Katy:

“Want to join me in supporting a good cause? I’m raising money for Alzheimer’s Society and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate a little or a lot. Anything helps. Thank you for your support.”

The Alzheimer’s Society’s mission is to change the landscape of dementia forever, and their vision is a world without dementia. The charity’s wants to reach every person who has a diagnosis and wants our help, they want to change the conversation on dementia and mainstream the rights of those living with it, and they also want to drive the research agenda, working tirelessly to improve support today and unlock the answers for a cure tomorrow.

To donate, please either see Katy at Ryefield Court or visit the Ryefield Court Facebook page!

Buddy Holly Tribute Act
If you love Buddy Holly then you would have absolutely loved our entertainment here last Thursday – we were lucky enough to welcome a Buddy Holly tribute act through our doors, and he was a very talented man, putting on a professional, entertaining and engaging display for us all.

We went all out on the night, celebrating everything related to the late singer-songwriter, and the impersonator transported us all back to the 1950s when country music and Rock ‘n’ Roll were the highlight of the era. The residents sang songs like ‘That’ll Be the Day’, ‘Heartbeat’ and many more classics. Hopefully he’ll be back soon!

World Alzheimer's Awareness Day
As we specialise in dementia care here at Ryefield Court, this year, we decided to take part in World Alzheimer’s Awareness Day last Friday, holding both a raffle and cake sale. All money raised on the day has gone towards helping to increase awareness of those living with the illness and the obstacles they face daily.

On the day, we had lavender bags and earrings available for purchase, which were made by some of our talented residents. The raffle was a huge success, with prizes generously donated from the local community, including lovely gifts such as bottles of wine, fruit baskets and a session with a personal trainer. The cake sale went well too, with some very tasty treats available all day.

This World Alzheimer’s Day – and every day, in fact – we want to make sure that everyone living with dementia knows that we are here for them. Our event was very successful, and we raised quite a bit of money for the charity – if you would like to get involved in any of our future fundraising events, please get in touch.

September Events at Ryefield Court
This September at Ryefield Court, we have four brilliant acts coming to dazzle us with their talent, and it really is an eclectic mix of entertainment!

Debi will be singing our favourite Motown songs, we’ll be hosting our very own version of Bruce Forsyth’s gameshow, Play Your Cards Right, we’ll be taken back to the 1950s by our Buddy Holly tribute act, and we’re finishing off the month with a Flamenco Dance Show, with Juani dancing for us, accompanied by her guitarist Mauricio!

It’s set to be a truly great month with such a wide variety of first-class entertainers here at Ryefield Court, and we hope you can come and join us to enjoy anything from one to all four of our evening events.

They are all being held from 7pm until 8pm and as always, food and drink is available at all events, courtesy of Ryefield Court. Our events are open to all, and we’d love to see you there – please RSVP to reception@ryefieldcourt.com to confirm your attendance.

The Tovertafel Magic Table
Tovertafel is a fun care innovation that connects those living with dementia with each other and also with their surroundings, stimulating movement at the same time. Designed specifically with dementia in mind, these games can be played both independently and under supervision, so we decided to play the Magic Table with our residents last Friday.

The Magic Table is an activity for people living with moderate to severe dementia, and we’re pleased to say that it’s offered at Uxbridge Library. This is a weekly activity that our residents enjoy, where they can interact by using light animations that react to hand and arm movements. The activities provide a vivid and positive experience containing elements familiar to older people, and it’s great to see everyone having so much fun.
