Just because you’re in a nursing home doesn’t mean you have to grow up.
I identify with the elderly. I love a soft food and a 9pm bedtime. Even with those charming qualities, I am nowhere near as adorable as the seniors at Bryn Celyn Care Home who used their isolation to bring a classic children’s game to life. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the seniors at the Wales nursing home decided to combat the loneliness by playing a giant version of the classic Milton Bradley board game, Hungry Hungry Hippos. The staff creatively attached laundry baskets to the ends of broomsticks, set out a pile of balls into the center of the room and then had their wheelchair bound seniors act as the hungry hippos.
While the video, shared on the home’s Facebook page, is obviously entertaining and yanks on literally every heart string, the care facility is using the post to alert the public that they hiring for positions in caring for residents. If you own pair of giant dice and happen to be in the south of Wales, this could be the perfect job for you! (Giant dice not necessary*)
Times are dark and we all need a good distraction. Take a look at the adorable video below!
