Residents at Field Lodge spent the day reading, writing and sharing some of their favourite poems to mark the event.
The team invited drama students from St Ivo School to join the celebrations and share some of their favourite poems with the residents and visitors.
Home manager, Linda Martinez, said: “Our World Poetry Day celebration is a great example of how activity based care at Field Lodge supports residents to continue enjoying their passions and hobbies. It is remarkable to see how reading poetry aloud can really bring people together and put a smile on the faces of everyone.
“For older people living with dementia, somebody reading aloud to them – whether it be a poem or short story – can have many therapeutic benefits due to its calming nature. We had a wonderful time celebrating all things poetry with the people of St Ives and would like to say a big thank you to St Ivo School for making the day extra special.”
