Care Home Christmas Food Project Makes Residents Feel Good

Residents at Clipstone Hall & Lodge have been getting an early taste of some festive favourites, as they celebrated a ten month collaborative project, working together with feel good foods. 

Over the past year, the Ollerton and District Economic Forum (ODEF) funded project, has been organising regular events for residents from the home to take part in.

These included planting seeds on their own community garden plot, to cooking up soup from their own produce, or taking part in a lively tasting, the majority of the residents in the 90-bed home have benefitted in some way from this partnership.

Emma Strutt, Peripatetic Manager, Orchard Care Homes said “This has been such a positive and beneficial relationship for the residents in our hom. The volunteers and organisers of Feel Good Foods have created a family community here in Mansfield, it’s a very personal experience.” 

“A number of our residents, such as Betty, love going out to the allotment, and they just get on with it, working together, talking about past memories and doing something practical and enjoyable.”

The Feel Good Foods project has been running since 2009, and works to unite people of all ages and abilities to promote independence through an array of indoor and outdoor activities.
