Today, we were treated to a wonderful medley of traditional music from Tonkan as well as brilliant resources from Alzheimer Scotland, lovely volunteers and lots of staff coming in and out. A few visitors came and stayed for the hour, which created a lovely buzz to the afternoon.
There was even some dancing! Plenty of singing along too. We were playing ‘Name That Tune’ at one point – Yellow Rose of Texas, Lovely Stornoway, Knees Up Mother Brown, Roll Out The Barrel, lots of Gaelic songs like Chi Mi’n Tir (did I spell that correctly?).
Cakes included home baked orange curd and rose iced sponge, cupcakes and scones with crowdie and cream.
Six people came from the wards, three visitors, Tonkan, Helen from Chaplaincy, myself (Paula from Arora), eight hospital staff came and went as they had time to support people and two fantastic volunteers.
Immense thanks to everyone. You are all stars.
