A St Albans care home went back in time when they hosted a 1940s themed week to mark Nutrition and Hydration Week.

Care staff at Fosse House in Ermine Close got every detail covered from their hair and makeup, to the vintage wartime uniforms and beautiful dresses of the decade, to ensure residents got involved with the week, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of nutrition and hydration.

Residents enjoyed a number of events running throughout the week, including a sausage tasting competition, a tea dance in Elstree, and a company wide bake-off for the care organisation’s residents to take part in.

The week finished on Friday with a tea dance at the home.

Pauline Marlborough, care home manager, said: "It was a fantastic event and the staff made such an effort for the residents and it really paid off. They were absolutely thrilled to see them all dressed up and it certainly put a smile on a lot of faces."
