Sanctuary Care residents in Bordon were the star of the show when they hosted their very own Von Trapp film shoot.
The team and residents at Ashley House Residential Care Home in Forest Road transported themselves to famous scenes from The Sound of Music in an interactive production.
Channelling their inner Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, residents from the Forest Road home, which provides dementia care and residential care, ensured the production was ‘picture-perfect’ by dressing to impress in dirndl dress and nun costumes, as well as painting a Swiss inspired back drop.
The Sanctuary Care home’s manager Margaret Powell said: “It has been wonderful to see the residents and team working together in such a creative way.
Many of the residents contributed fantastic ideas throughout the production planning.
“We always encourage creativity and the contribution our residents made to this project proves how important it is to give people living in care homes opportunities to express themselves.”
Shine! aims to shine a light on the individuals living in our care homes, encouraging their participation in arts-based sessions, including theatre, movement, music and film.
The programme is funded through Sanctuary Group, Sanctuary Care’s parent company, and is part of Sanctuary’s commitment to highlight the potential and talents of older people through quality arts experiences.
