Care home resident creates braille menu to celebrate National Braille Week


In support of the National Awareness day, a local resident from Castleford Lodge care home in West Yorkshire has dedicated her time to creating a special braille menu for blind people.


Princess Baldwin has been a resident at the Orchard Care Home since November 2019 and thoroughly enjoys working on projects with the support of the entire activities team. She worked with staff member Shelly, who read out every item as Princess used her braille writer to type each one out. The special menu was personalised with Princess’s name in recognition of all her hard work and she was so thrilled with the final outcome that she couldn’t wait to show it off to the other residents.


Shelly had a great time working on this project with Princess and said, “I learnt so much about writing in braille that I didn’t know before. Well done Princess!”.


Castleford Lodge is a specialist residential, nursing, dementia nursing and respite care home and part of Orchard Care Homes’ network of residences situated across the North of England and the Midlands.
