Rain didn’t stop Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven from holding their royal birthday party to celebrate Care Home Open Day.
Rhona McGregor, Home Manager, said: “We had originally planned to hold the event outside, but unfortunately the rain and high winds had other plans, so we brought the party indoors instead.
“Local SNP MP Stuart Donaldson got the party started and enjoyed the morning speaking to residents and the team at the home, whilst enjoying a cup of tea and a slice of the beautiful birthday cake we had made to mark the occasion.”
The day was action packed in the home, with residents leading a sing along, getting dressed up as Her Majesty and partaking in a bit of friendly competition in some games.
Rhona McGregor added: “I want to thank Cat Torrie, the Deputy Manager at Havencourt’s niece for baking the beautiful cake for us. It really was a big hit with the residents.
“Thanks to everyone’s generosity on the day, we manage to raise £225.20 for our resident’s fund, which will help us to create some very special resident experiences for them.
“Everyone had a great time and we look forward to planning next year’s event!”
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Events like the one at Havencourt Care Home will help to create lasting links between the residents and their local community.
Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.
