Residents at Parkview Care Home in Bexleyheath, experienced sheer joy as they attended the 30th-anniversary celebration of Jurassic Park at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The iconic film was brought to life with a live performance by the London Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, enhancing the cinematic experience.
Projected in HD on the grand stage of the Royal Albert Hall, Jurassic Park took on a new dimension as the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra skillfully played John Williams’ timeless score live-to-picture. The event was a testament to the power of music and cinema to create lasting memories.
One resident shared their excitement, saying, ‘What a fantastic afternoon, the live orchestra really added to the film! It was wonderful seeing the inside of such an iconic venue like the Royal Albert Hall.’
At Parkview Care Home, day trips and engaging events are not just activities. They are integral components of Parkview’s care philosophy to enhance the well-being of residents, with staff tailoring activities based on residents’ interests and requests.
The trip to the Royal Albert Hall was planned in response to residents expressing a desire for a theatre or concert experience before Christmas.
The aim of Parkview’s philosophy of care is to reduce loneliness, helplessness and boredom, all of which can present a challenge for those receiving care.
The philosophy reduces these challenges by ensuring residents have the opportunity to build relationships with each other and staff, and stay connected outside of the home.
