To ignite the festive spirit, we opened our doors to families and friends, inviting them to join us for a series of enchanting Tinsel Days. Together, we embarked on a mission to adorn the home, creating a winter wonderland in anticipation of The Christmas Fair.
The air was filled with the irresistible aroma of delicious hot chocolates topped with marshmallows, and the sweet notes of Christmas songs played softly in the background. Mince pies were on hand, adding an extra dash of holiday joy to our gatherings.
Residents, with a twinkle in their eyes, were captivated by the magical glow of Christmas lights and the sparkling brilliance of decorations. Many adorned themselves with tinsel, not just as decoration but as a way to spread a bit of Christmas cheer with every shimmering step.
The presence of families added an extra layer of warmth to our festivities. Their assistance was invaluable, and the joy they shared was immeasurable. It was a collective effort, and we couldn’t have been more grateful for the spirit of togetherness that enveloped our home.
Keep an eye out for Buddy—he’s gearing up to make an appearance, and we’re sure he’ll be joining our festivities very soon!
Margaret, a family member, couldn’t help but express her admiration, noting how beautiful the decorations were. A friend of one of our residents chimed in, calling it “just fabulous.”
Hayley, our Activities Lead, shared her heartfelt appreciation, saying, “What a wonderful few days we’ve had! I’m so grateful for all the help from residents, their families, and team members. Decorating a 72-bed care home is a substantial task, but everyone’s involvement made it extra special. Thank you all for making our home a haven of holiday magic.”
Stay tuned for more festive tales as we continue to usher in the magic of the season at our cherished home!
