Suffolk care home residents ‘strut their stuff’ down the catwalk

Staff at a care home in Suffolk helped residents ‘strut their stuff’ at a popular fashion show making them ‘feel young again.’

Residents at Spring Lodge were ‘over the moon’ when they proved age has no barrier when it comes to looking and feeling great.

The Artichoke Collection Fashion Show were looking for models to showcase their new range of dresses, tops and trousers when the deputy manager of Spring Lodge suggested they try something different.

Gemma Dennis, deputy manager at Spring Lodge, said: “I thought, I know some amazing ladies who would love to take part from our care home, so I emailed the organisers.

“We soon joined forces and had a wonderful morning strutting our stuff on the catwalk.”

Spring Lodge was rated ‘good’ by the Care Quality Commission at its last inspection in 2017 and the home cares for dementia patients and deliver complex, specialist residential care for up to 46 residents.

Joe Simoes, manager at Spring Lodge, said: “The residents were really happy and enjoyed the attention they were getting.

“They had a huge smile on their faces and were overwhelmed.”
