A busy social calendar at Princess Christian Care Home

Our Recreation and Well-Being team have had a busy few weeks here at Princess Christian Care Home, with lots going on for our residents and families to enjoy.

We held a celebration for International Nurses Day on 12 May, as we are very proud of the dedicated and hard working nurses we have in our Home. They were all presented with certificates and chocolates from Mario, as well as some delicious cakes to enjoy.

The team held an ‘Icon Day‘, when our residents had fun dressing up and doing photo shoots! This proved to be so popular that we will be doing it monthly from now on as it was so much fun!

We have enjoyed visits from the lovely pupils of St John’s the Baptist School, who come every Wednesday to chat and play games, as well as sing and dance for our residents.

Our residents have also been busy in our Cooking Club making some very tasty dishes – from fruit pies to chocolate and vanilla sponges – and they all look so professional now, thanks to our Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv who presented us with aprons and chefs hats.

Our Father’s Day celebrations went down very well, as we had our very own Elvis come to perform – and perform he did! Our residents sang along and a few even got up to dance. Some of our gentlemen even did the Elvis ‘leg shake’! All our gents were treated to some delicious cakes, pies, chocolates and glasses of beer, and our team took around Father’s Day presents to all of them.

Our gardens are looking delightful at the moment. Our residents have really enjoyed seeing them come into bloom from all their hard work, along with our keen gardener Pam, the wife of one of our residents. Our residents and Pam have worked very hard to find plants that have a special meaning to individuals, as well as sensory plants and a lovely selection of herbs which our kitchen staff have already used in their tasty meals.

And finally, we are very much looking forward to our Care Home Open Day on Friday 29 June, when we’ll have a super line up of activities and refreshments on offer. See you there!
