Last week saw Pellon Care Centre in Halifax, roll out the red carpet for its longest residing resident.
Tom has been a resident at the home for the past 15 years, and everybody celebrated this with a party, complete with a lovely cake. Tom was even served his favourite meal – a roast chicken dinner – to make his day extra special.
Laura Clegg, Home Manager said: “It was great to celebrate with Tom and all of his friends here at Pellon. It’s fantastic to see that even after all this time we can still surprise him. Tom is a great resident, and I look forward to the next 15 years together.”
After seeing what’s been happening at the home over the last few weeks, it isn’t hard to see why Tom and the other residents enjoy living here.
Laura Clegg explained: “The past few weeks have been extremely busy for everyone here at the home. The residents and their relatives have been casting their artistic eye over the home helping us to redecorate, everyone loves the new colour themes.
“Other recent activities have included a cinema afternoon, an afternoon baking delights and a Zumba class in which some of the female residents put us to shame!”
The home is currently in the midst of planning a number of fundraising events, so the residents can be treated to extra special trips out. Some of the staff are walking the extra mile – or 26 to be exact – during a sponsored walk.
Laura Clegg added: “We’ve got another busy few weeks ahead of us. I can’t wait. Watch this space!”
