FRUITS FROM AROUND THE WORLD AT WILLETT HOUSE

Jane Wilkinson

18 September 2017

Residents at Willett House recently enjoyed an afternoon session of "Fruits from around the world". During the session, residents looked at and felt the fruit to see if they knew what it was. They then looked at maps of the world to see where the fruit came from. This led to conversation among the residents as to where everyone had travelled to with resident, Brian, recalling fond memories of his trip to Australia and New Zealand. Residents were then given the opportunity to taste the fruit with watermelon and mango being favourites (lemons, limes and gooseberries weren’t so much of a hit though!). 

“This was a great activity as it encouraged our residents to use a variety of senses. It was also a great reminiscence activity and encouraged residents to consume one of their five a day!”, Karla Osborne, Activities Carer, told us.
