The residents of Longfield Care Home had a lovely surprise this afternoon as part of their Nutrition & Hydration Week; staff had arranged for an ice cream trolley to come to the care home! They had many flavours on offer, from classic popular choices such as chocolate and vanilla, to some more unusual flavours such as bubble gum, cookie dough and peanut butter.
Longfield’s Lifestyle Coordinator, Paula Clarke, had made the ice cream trolley in her own time at home; the residents were very impressed with her efforts. “The most popular flavours were strawberry and raspberry ripple, as well as the banana split.” Explained Paula, “All of the residents participated. They were all very excited to try new flavours, with cones, sauces and even a flake if they so wished! All in all, the evening was a lovely success. This Nutrition & Hydration Week will stay with us as a result for a long time to come!”
