St Monica Trust  A not-for-profit organisation delivering well-being for older people through innovative care, retirement accommodation and other methods of support.

A brilliant day of intergenerational fun today at Cote Lane for our first Children’s Creativity Day. Huge thanks to the children, families and St Monica Trust residents that helped make it such a special day.

This week our training team had a special visit from Christina, who was one of 29 students to join us for work experience this July. During her time with us Christina attended a session on dementia awareness where she was shown a twiddle blanket. These blankets can be used to reduce distress and boredom, can give an individual something to do with their hands and can be personalised to each individual's wishes. Christina has since become a St Monica Trust volunteer, deciding to make some blankets of her own and came in to show us her prototype.
Well done Christina!

At our AGM today we were visited by Praminda Caleb-Solly and colleagues from the Bristol Robotics Lab at UWE. As well as talking to us about how robotics will enhance social care in the future, we were treated to a Zumba session led by Pepper the robot. #zumba #socialcare #robotics #robot
