Braintree care home residents treated to Swedish pop culture


h-c-solutions-care-industry-newsResidents at a Braintree care home have relived fond memories after being treated to a theatrical experience with a hint of Swedish pop culture.


Aspen Grange care home welcomed the ‘stars’ of ‘Mamma Mia’ to perform in front of its residents and staff, which included renditions of the ABBA songs featured in the play and film.


Entertainers from Daisy Chain Productions, which specialises in care home entertainment, visited the home to deliver the show.


Carol Porter, activities co-ordinator at Aspen Grange, said: “We are always looking at ways to provide our residents with additional activities and entertainment, and the Mamma Mia production was such an enjoyable experience for all. A lot of our residents join in the singing and dancing whenever we play the film, so it was a nice treat to have the live experience in the comfort of the home.


“I would like to thank Daisy Chain for putting on a fantastic show, with first class entertainers, which was well received by all our residents and staff. We are now looking forward to welcoming them back for another performance in the near future.”


  1. It’s great to see the elderly being entertained by Swedish pop culture. In fact in Sweden, or one of the nordic countries I recently watched a video whereby nursery aged (kindergarden) children were in the same premises as the elderly.

    The symbiosis worked both ways – in that the elderly get to see the young run around and felt younger again and the young were able to listen to the stories and memories that the elderly had to tell the young children.

    Would you consider something like this in the future?
