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!”
