2019.10.29 - Monthly Games Skittles Thumb.jpgSafe Harbor care home residents recently met up for the monthly inter-house game tournament.

This month the tournament was hosted by Haversham Heroes of Haversham House, Trentham. Rivals The Placemates, from The Place Up Hanley, travelled from Bucknall to take them on.

The game of choice was skittles, with a set of foam indoor skittles being used especially chosen for our residents.

Indoor games such as these have been proven to encourages movement, exercise and social interaction between elderly people and those living with Dementia.

This months winners were The Place Up Hanley who managed to regain the trophy after their loss the month before.

Commiserations were in order to Haversham Heroes who didn't go down without a fight.
