A Disco With a Twist at Apsley House Care Home
Residents at Apsley House Care Home, our elderly care home in Bognor Regis
, recently enjoyed an afternoon disco - however this was definitely not your typical disco. The usual blaring of classic tunes was instead replaced by silence. Not much of a disco I hear you say, but this was actually a silent disco, and they’re all the rage nowadays.
For the uninitiated, a silent disco is one during which there is no music played out loud. Instead, each attendee is given a pair of headphones to wear which allows them to decide what to listen to, rather than hoping and praying the DJ has the same taste in music as them!
As you can imagine, it was a new experience for most of our residents, however it was truly embraced by everybody in attendance. With inflatable instruments & microphones available residents and staff alike had the opportunity to enjoy rocking out to their chosen anthems while the silence remained undisturbed. It was yet another fantastic event at our gold standard nursing home in Sussex
and a perfect example of our staff thinking outside the box to ensure our residents are living life to the fullest.
