Lisa was invited as a special guest today to attend the care home’s fun open day.
It was lovely to see so many residents and their families at the Open Day. The sunny hot weather made it even more special. Lisa attended with Mark her husband and they were looked after by Fran the Manager and Kaye one of the management staff and offered some refreshments.
Everyone was having lovely time with music entertainment. The entertainer was dressed in a Pearly King outfit and played and sang some old songs.
Fran then introduced Lisa to say a few words. Lisa was informed that all the residents took part in painting a very big painting of The White Cliffs of Dover. In fact some residents still had paint on their hands. Lisa was also shown another painting that residents made previously from the film The Sound of Music.
Lisa congratulated the residents for their beautiful works of art. Lisa was then presented with a beautiful pot of flowers which was a lovely surprise.
Before leaving Lisa went to talk to some of the residents and families and just before leaving, care staff surprised Fran with a birthday cake. Fran celebrated her 70th birthday last year and had no idea Care staff were going to surprise her again this year. Fran was very overwhelmed by the surprise birthday.
Lisa would like to thank Fran the care home manager and Kaye for the invitation today. It was so lovely to see all the residents having so much fun and also wonderful to hear from the families what an outstanding care home it is and how lucky they are to have such an amazing care home manager and great care staff.
