15th August 2017 Linson Court Care Home launches tuck shop to reignite resident’s memories
Linson Court Care Home in Batley has introduced an innovative weekly tuck shop for residents, run by the residents themselves. Even Linson Court’s oldest resident Queenie Bishop, who is 100, does shifts selling sweets and goodies to others at the home. The money raised from the tuck shop will go towards future events at the home, including the upcoming summer garden party and Eid party. Maariyah Rakhim, activity co-ordinator at Linson Court said: “The recently introduced tuck shop is such a great idea for the home. The first day of the tuck shop was a huge success and the residents love being able to participate. I help to run the shop but most of all, I love seeing the residents working and enjoying it. “A lot of our residents have worked for most of their lives so this helps stimulate their brains and reignite happy memories of working.”

11th April 2017 Linson Court resident given new lease of life
Irene Hargreaves, a resident at Linson Court care home, has found a new lease of life after adopting a life-like cat, Topsy. Irene, who is 97, has Alzheimer’s and often declines to join in with activities at the home. But staff thought a ‘pet’ would help stimulate her and give her a focus. Beth Parry, care home manager at Linson Court said: “The introduction of Topsy the life-like cat has been fantastic for Irene, she is very fond of it. “It is the little things that make all the difference and spread a bit of joy in someone’s life, and we are very happy to be able to do this at the home.” Irene was born in a village just outside Scarborough, and has worked in a number of professions over the years including being a conductor on the buses, working in a maternity ward and at a biscuit factory. She had two cats who she adored, which gave staff the idea of adopting a cat now.
11th April 2017 Linson Court resident celebrates 100th birthday

Queenie, who is Linson Court’s oldest resident, was treated to songs from her favourite film ‘The Sound of Music’ and received her telegram from the Queen. Her one son and two grandchildren visit daily and helped to organise the party. Queenie loves to recall stories of her past including always riding a bike with a basket on the front, and reminisces about a gorgeous fur coat which she sold for £5.00 but knows she could have sold it for a lot more. Queenie also enjoys bowls, chair dancing, Sunday roasts and watching The Jeremy Kyle Show with her best friend Barbara. Kyomi Kershaw, Activities Co-Ordinator at Linson Court Care Home said: “Queenie is a delight, she is so outgoing and happy, and looks very young for her age! We had a lot of fun celebrating her birthday.”
