Ridgeway Care Home thinks pink to lift spirits during Coronavirus

In the last couple of days, pink became the most essential colour for all of us at Ridgeway Rise Care Home.

It brightens our day, says ‘good morning’ with flower arrangements, ‘how are you’ with songs’ lyrics and ‘have a nice day’ with creative arts and crafts projects. Pink is the colour of the uniforms our Activities Team wear. Ever since we decided to cocoon our residents and reduce non-essential visits to the Home, our Fantastic Five have been going above and beyond to keep the residents’ routine and sense of assurance undisturbed.

We continue to celebrate birthdays, awareness days, special events and daily enrichment. A Skype account has been set up not only to keep communication between families but also as a tool to introduce our home to new potential residents via virtual, live tours. Those living with dementia are oblivious to the global crisis and we use our pink curtain to cover anxiety, frustration and negativity. Our windows have colourful lights and pictures of rainbows in to say – No matter what, we smile a lot!

Pink turned into colour of hope; pink is the sound of songs we sing and the taste of the cookies we bake. When the sadness descends and we all doublethink, stay positive – be pink!
