Team members and residents at Care South’s Maiden Castle House care home hosted a crazy hair day event to raise awareness for Lewis-Manning Hospice Care. All donations will go to the hospice which helps people with life-limiting illnesses, to live their precious lives well.

Residents had the opportunity to spend time with the home’s activities team members to trial out some unique hairdos. Rachel Sohorye, the home’s Manager, commented: “The crazy hair day was so much fun, and it was lovely to see so many residents and staff taking part for such a worthy cause. Everyone had so much fun, and it was lovely to see so many staff and residents taking part.”

The home also ran a staff competition where residents voted for the winner of the craziest hair competition. Thai O’Gorman, a care assistant, was the very worthy winner with her space buns which were created with accessories she had at home. Thai used as many of her head bands as she could and added these into her hairdo. She was awarded a bottle of champagne, chocolates and a certificate.

Maiden Castle House care home is based in Dorchester and offers residential, dementia and respite care in a homely and welcoming setting.
