BBC Radio Bristol came to St George’s Nursing Home on Wednesday 28 November as part of the Alive charity appeal.

Alive provides activity sessions to Care Homes and Day Centres.

The charity uses music, dance, storytelling, objects from the past and touchscreens to spark memories and conversations. They bring joy, laughter and fun to people who may be living with dementia or who have become demotivated, depressed or inactive.

Listeners heard how residents become “Alive” through activities improving their quality of life, appetite and even in some cases reducing their needs for medication.

St George’s wholeheartedly supports this charity.

You can listen to the programme here. The feature begins at the 1 hour 38 minute 50 seconds mark.
