Lido House, a sheltered scheme in Oldham, was nominated for our Working Together Award at the Spirit of Housing & Care 21 Awards.
At Christmas, Lido House is alight with colour as the scheme is host to the Grotton Christmas lights. Throughout the year residents are involved with fundraising events and activities, and 'Funky Fitness' classes are held each week. In May the Alzheimer’s Society hosted a Dementia Day at Lido, raising awareness about the condition as well as funds. Finally, adults with special needs are invited to Lido to take part in fun activities, with residents joining in the fun.
The nomination reads, “Lido House might be a small scheme, but it has a big heart. The court manager, Vicky Shaw, and her residents go out of their way to make the scheme the hub of the community…”
