Karaoke Fancy Dress Party Brings Fun and Laughter To Mill View
29 September 2021
An afternoon of singing, fancy dress and party food was just the tonic that Residents on Mill View’s Atlas unit needed this summer.
Care Colleagues came up with the plan for a music-filled event that would get Residents moving.
After getting out the fancy-dress box, Colleagues handed out a variety of bright costumes so Residents could choose their outfits.
Care Assistant Nikita Duffy said the party really got going when the karaoke began.
Nikita said: “It was such a fun afternoon – Residents love a bit of karaoke.
“We sang songs by Tom Jones, Vera Lynn, The Beatles, Elton John, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.
“Residents were singing and dancing along, and it was fab to see them with big smiles on their faces.
“It was the perfect afternoon for a bit of fun and laughter.”
Colleagues wanted to ensure that everyone had a good time, especially as not all Residents get visitors coming to see them.
Some Care Workers, including Nikita, stayed on past their shift ending to support the team and keep the party going.
Nikita said: “It’s so important to boost morale and make sure Residents get to have enjoyable times like this.
“Even Residents who usually stay in their rooms and don’t normally participate in activities chose to join in.
“All the dancing was great for Residents’ mobility, and the socialising was great for the emotional wellbeing.
“We’ve already had Residents asking when the next karaoke party will be.”
