The Care Home Album Covers project was created and produced by Robert Speker, Activities Coordinator at Sydmar Lodge Care Home in Edgware, North West London. When the home went into lockdown in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Robert devised interesting activities to keep the residents motivated, enthused and engaged. Robert undertook all aspects of the project from the concept stage, putting the idea to the residents, setting the scene, lighting, make-up and costume, taking the actual photos and editing them to completion. The Care Home Album Covers have now been viewed over 11 million times on Twitter (see 'Media' tab) and have gained an overwhelming and positive response including from those connected with the original album covers. It has been featured by global media including BBC, CNN, Yahoo, NBC's Today show and People magazine, and in countries around the world including USA, Canada, Australia, all across Europe and in the Far East.
