The Christmas spirit was alive and well at one of Ashberry’s care homes, Blaenos House in Wales, thanks to Oomph’s delightful activities. Residents embraced the joy of the season by participating in the whimsical ‘What’s your elf name?’ activity, provided by Oomph’s online platform. The atmosphere was filled with laughter as Dottie discovered her inner ‘Glitter Fingers,’ Beryl transformed into the enchanting ‘Cheesy Shimmer Shaker,’ and David adopted the playful persona of ‘Crazy Cookie Cruncher.’ Oomph’s Christmas activities not only entertained but also created cherished moments, bringing smiles and festive cheer to our residents during this special time of the year.
