Time to rhyme for World Poetry Day at Mountfitchet House

Home news

 

Mountfitchet House are celebrating World Poetry Day on Wednesday 21st March.

World Poetry Day is an annual celebration of rhythmic literature and promotes the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world. This year, the team at Mountfitchet House is getting set for a day of word play and rhyming fun.

Residents at Mountfitchet House will be celebrating the day by reading a number of their favourite poems and rhymes aloud. Residents are also being encouraged to put pen to paper to create their own short verses and poems to enter into Care UK’s poetry competition, which is taking place nationwide to mark World Poetry Day.

Home manager, Allison Squires explained why Mountfitchet House is taking part in World Poetry Day: “Poetry is a powerful tool that can aid expression, communication and emotional resilience. It is also incredibly evocative and can bring back memories and emotions for older and young people alike.

“World Poetry Day presents a great opportunity to share poems from past and present with residents. It also fits in really well with our ‘activity based care’ approach here at Mountfitchet House, and has real therapeutic benefits for residents whether writing or reading, especially those living with dementia.

“We’re all looking forward to celebrating this event with a day full of rhyme!”
