Residents, staff, and family members at Ashwood care home in Ware took part in a special silent disco birthday celebration on the 18th of January, organised for the care home’s resident, Monica.
Monica’s daughter generously donated a silent disco setup, transforming the main lounge into a vibrant dance floor decorated with glow sticks and an array of party food. The celebration brought together residents, staff, and Monica’s daughters and husband.

As soon as residents put on their headphones, their faces lit up, and the main lounge came alive with an array of dance moves. The power of music to uplift spirits and bring people together was evident, making the silent disco a memorable and heartwarming occasion.
