At the Claret Granada and Seville Residences for the Elderly, they never cease to celebrate love and friendship every day as the great family that they are, always with the necessary safety and health measures, and this month those words have taken on more meaning because the calendar has wanted it to be so.
In this way, the Residencia Claret Granada celebrated the 14th of February, Valentine’s Day, in a special way. The weather was fine throughout the day, so the residents were able to enjoy the sun and the group. In addition, the previous week they had all been working together to organise the preparations for a large decorative mural. As if that wasn’t enough, the students of the Valderrubio School sent them some beautiful cards to commemorate this special day and to congratulate them.
The Claret Sevilla Residence has also been full of activities. Thus, on 14 February they celebrated the Day of Love and Friendship, having held several workshops and debates the previous week concerning love, related cognitive activities and a workshop on labour therapy in which the residents made figures of hearts with different colours of cardboard to represent this day; on 10 February they celebrated World Pulses Day to remember the nutritional and environmental benefits of this type of food, with several workshops such as visual/tactile discrimination of the different pulses and their benefits; They also celebrated Carnival by watching typical chirigotas from Cádiz and Seville and carrying out music therapy activities and a labour therapy workshop; and on 17 February they also celebrated Ash Wednesday with a mass led by Father Santos and a subsequent talk to remember what the period of Lent and Holy Week means.
