Care Home residents enjoy trip out “to the pictures”.
Since the original release of The Jungle Book is a 1967, residents at Abermill Care Home were excited to learn that the film had once again had a revamp. To celebrate this some of the residents at the home joined the staff at the cinema to watch the new release.
Armed with popcorn the residents went to enjoy one of their favourite childhood films and there has been plenty of laughs and reminiscing about the day. As many of the residents who went to watch the new version of The Jungle Book have grandchildren and great grandchildren the event gave a great subject to help interact with the younger generation, there was some disagreement to which film was ultimately the best version. Plans are already on the way for the next visit to the cinema and family’s wishing to join in the event.
