December was a fantastically festive and merry month at Kingsland House Care Home in Shoreham.

There was a whole host of celebrating and partying, starting off with a lovely Advent church service.

The Christmas period also included a variety of entertaining guests visiting throughout the month.

The home, run by Barchester Healthcare, offers specialist dementia care and staff take a person-centred care approach.

Residents at the home, in Kingsland Close, enjoyed Christmas Jumper Day and had a cake stall, along with a roaringly successful Christmas party knees up, starring none other than Santa and three helpful elves.

Some of the staff put on a performance entitled Carry on Panto, especially written by activities co-ordinator Eileen Garbutt for the home’s Memory Lane Community, which is designed to encourage people living with dementia to stay as independent and active as possible.
