The care home project members meet with Miss Conn roughly once a month in room 1.17 to discuss and plan the next visit to the local carehome. We visit Deeside Carehome once or twice every two months and activities range from reading poems, reciting music and various other games and activities with the residents. This project is aimed at anyone who likes old folks, wants to be more involved in the community or even those who like showing off their skills and talents. This activity also looks great on your CV!
