Residents of The Dynes spent an afternoon mixing up their very own fruit and veg concoctions, to make some deliciously healthy smoothies.


Residents of the Kemsing residential home opted to give the current clean eating trend a go, when staff hosted a smoothie making activity.


Armed with a blender and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, the residents got stuck in mixing their ingredients and creating their smoothies. They enjoyed each one they made but were pleasantly surprised when even the green smoothie tasted delicious.


Kay Hawkins, carer at the home who organised the activity said: “We do our best to provide original and engaging activities for our residents, in the past few weeks we’ve had visits from puppies, a cheese and wine night and cake decorating to name a few.


“The residents loved making and trying the smoothies as it was something really different, they are hoping they can do it again soon!”


The Abbeyfield Kent Society believes activities within residential homes should be varied and changeable, which is why our activity calendars are altered monthly. We are proud to reflect the principles of the Eden Alternative within our homes, a theory that focuses on eliminating helplessness, boredom and loneliness through novelty and creativity.
