Citizens from Marcus Garvey Day Centre (MGDC) visited The Oaks Residential Care Home to take part in their Summer Fare as activities designed to improve the mental, social, and physical wellbeing of the citizens of MGDC.

During their visit, the citizens took part in many different activities that were organised for residents of The Oaks Residential Care Home.

They expressed delight in the visit and most of them enjoyed the different sessions that were held.

There was a quiz session geared toward improving their memory and making recollection of historic events in which most of them took part and enjoyed.

Another purpose of the day visit was for the citizens of MGDC to meet new people at The Oaks Residential Care Home and enjoy their day with the refreshments that were on offer in the company of each other.

With the end of the pandemic – even though people should be more careful especially the elderly and the vulnerable, these types of visits are those that citizens look forward to because of the joy they bring to them and how they impact on their wellbeing.

The Oaks Residential Care Home which is located on Campbell Street in St. Ann’s provides residential care for elderly, frail people and specialises in care for people with Dementia.
