On Sunday 6th March, many of us celebrated Mothering Sunday with our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, taking the time to say thank you for everything they’ve done for us, and making us the people we are today.
Our homes spared no expense and celebrated the day with residents and families alike. Some of the activities and celebrations that our homes conducted can be found below.
At Woodview and Greenwood Care Home in Lincoln, the team bought flowers for all of the female residents.
Naomi Allan, Activities Co-ordinator at Woodview said: “Whether they have been mothers, or remember their own mothers, this was a great day to celebrate all the special ladies in our lives. If you think about it, whether we have children of our own or not we all act as a mother to someone at some point in our lives, whether looking out for a neighbour or nieces and nephews, ladies seem to have an instinct to look after others.”
Naomi sought out all the vases that could be found in the home and gave them a good spring clean before filling them with flowers from the local market. All the ladies in the home have a vase in their room and there was even enough to have flowers in the lounges and dining room, a spring transformation to the home. A nice little way to brighten up anyone’s day.
Whilst in Northlea Court in Cramlington the team held a special afternoon tea for residents and their families with a special thank you and celebration to all of the mothers who made us the people we are today.
At Hallgarth Care Home in Durham, they were continuing their ‘Ladies Day’ celebrations. All of the female residents were given a carnation button hole which they wore with pride. This small gesture highlighted to the ladies the important role they play in the Hallgarth Care Home family.
At Riverside View Care Home in Darlington residents, relatives and the team all celebrated the day with balloons, tea and cake.
At Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston, the community team at Tesco donated freshly cut flowers to the home. This brightened up both lounges and brought smiles to the faces of the residents. The home had many visitors during the day and a beautiful mother's day tea was served. All visitors were made to feel welcome and commented on what a nice atmosphere the home had during the day .
We hope all of the mothers at Four Seasons Health Care had a lovely day.
