Everyone likes to get dressed up and have a laugh and a joke. This is certainly the case at The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole as they’ve been raiding their fancy dress box over the last couple of weeks.
Firstly, on Friday 17th June 2016, the home celebrated Care Home Open Day. The theme, Hawaiian of course. The event saw the home celebrate the Queen’s birthday with the traditional red, white and blue and a tropical twist.
Then on the 25th June, the home celebrated Armed Forces Day. Once again the dressing up box was raided. The team found khaki clothing to camouflage themselves and donned various styles of face paint.
Helen Bell, Home Manager, explained: “Dressing up is always a bit of fun. It’s a great way to get the residents and the team talking and laughing, as some of the fancy dress choices are a bit of a sight on the eyes! What’s important is that on the two days we celebrated, everyone had a fantastic time. It’s not every day you see the person who cares for you dressed up as a Sergeant Major!
“We also took the time to celebrate one of our resident’s birthdays. Like the Queen she also turned 90 this year. She got to spend it celebrating with all her friends, family and some hula girls.”
