Staff at Caldy Manor Care Home in Caldy swapped their uniforms for costumes on National Elf Day in an effort to raise funds to help people living with dementia.
Launched by the Alzheimer’s Society and delivered direct from the North Pole, Elf Day was created to sprinkle some festive cheer on fundraising towards finding a cure for dementia. From stripy socks to head-to-toe elf outfits, anything goes – there’s snow better way to raise money to help beat dementia.
On the day, residents and staff at Caldy Manor were able to enjoy elf-themed games including best-dressed elf competition and an Elf Treasure Hunt.
Robert and Joan Irons, residents of the home said, “It was a very festive day and the staff made us laugh in their costumes. What a wonderful way to raise money for charity!”
Hannah Roberts, General Manager at Caldy Manor Care Home and head elf, said, “Elf Day at Caldy Manor is always a lot of fun and we are home to some of the most unusual elves I have ever seen! We know first-hand that many people, including a good number of our residents, are living with some form of Alzheimer’s. That’s why raising money to support dementia charities is dear to our hearts and we’re always so keen to get involved. We’re proud that the money we’ve raised will go towards such a good cause.
“For anyone that has any questions about caring for those with Alzheimer’s, do please give us a call and we’ll do all we can to help.”
