As part of National Care home Open day, last Friday we hosted The Manchester Trio. They have played at the care home before, but this time they brought some friends.
It was lovely music. Residents came from all the units into the large main lounge. Below is video and some pictures. It was a very enjoyable day.
Tai Chi Classes have started at the Vicarage Court Care home for all the residents. Residents from all 3 units have been offered them and many have taken the option. Residents had the option doing the motions while being seated or standing. Many choose to stand once they got into the flow of the class. Other residents watched and it became a fun atmosphere.
After the class, one resident commented, ” I feel young and relaxed. The music and aromas used in the class are very nice.”
Tomorrow will be Good Friday, however the residents have already spent the week making their own Easter cards, decorating Easter Eggs, and making their own Easter Bonnets. Below are some pictures of them having fun…..
Below are some random nice pictures from 2012 for everyone to enjoy….
The care home will be hosting its Annual Christmas Carol Service in conjunction with North Featherstone Junior and Infant School.
This year it will be at 10.45 am on Friday 14th December.
It is a fun occasion which the residents and the kids all enjoy. Below are some videos from last year.
The care home now has the “Service for the Holy Communion” . This has been happening for a few weeks and is much appreciated by many residents. The care home would like to thank Elizabeth Haigh who is the daughter of May Haigh, who has taken this initiative.
So every 1st Tuesday of every month, Elizabeth Haigh and Harry Copley will be doing the service at 10.30am. We already have a number of residents who partake in it, but if other families wish to take advantage of this, then everyone is welcome to attend.
Below are some pictures……
