Simply Sweet Auchterarder owner Fiona McDermott visited the home with her sweet trolley of old fashioned sweets and chocolates. Much to the delight of all our residents and the staff, we all indulged ourselves in these sweet treats. This was arranged following resident feedback when we were asked how residents can keep a stock of sweets. Local shopkeeper Fiona quickly responded saying she was more than happy to come along to the home and see what people thought. Now we have scheduled the sweet trolley visits once a fortnight given the fantastic comments. Kay said “next time  you come I will be twice the size!” Then went onto place an order for her next visit. Iona activities co-ordinator said the visit was a huge success. The stories residents began telling of times gone by and the sweets they remembered so well brought a lot of smiles. Nancy, Jimmy and Jean all commented on how fantastic it was to have the lady bring her sweet trolley to them. It was nice to have a blether and recall a story or two. Thanks again Fiona, we look forwards to seeing you in two weeks!
