A Suffolk care home treated its residents to a Grease-themed celebration by transforming itself into a 1950s diner for a day.
Residents of Hartismere Place, Eye, tucked in to a 50s-inspired menu of hot dogs, knickerbocker glories and banana splits while enjoying songs by staff.
A part of the Alzheimer's Society “flashback” events, the blast from the past was aimed at helping unite people against dementia.
Manager Abhilash Gopi said: “We all had an absolute blast at our 50s-themed party, and it was clear that everyone really enjoyed stepping back in time to experience the decade of rock and roll.
“Many residents here have wonderful memories of the 50s, and it was a pleasure to be able to reminisce about past times.
“Living with dementia can be challenging but by holding get-togethers like the Alzheimer's Society flashback event, we can raise awareness and offer all the help and support people need.”
