Alan Cutlers ‘One Man Music Hall’ helped everyone at Northlea Court Care Home in Cramlington celebrate the start of 2017.

Music from all ages helped residents, relatives, friends and the care team at the Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston bring 2017 in, in style.
The home was all decked out in with lots of decorations, whilst the care team dressed up as party prince and princesses to continue the theme. Music was provided by the fabulous Johnny Victory, who sang a variety of music from across the ages.
Nina Wright, Home Manager, said: “The party mood certainly hit everyone here at the home. There was lots of things for everyone to do, but the most important bit was the countdown. We welcomed 2017 in by singing Auld Lang Syne. Eveyone at Cedars and Larches wishes you all the best in 2017.”

Residents, relatives, friends and the care team welcomed in New Year at Flower Park Care Home in Doncaster in style.
The home threw a New Year’s Eve Party to end all parties and welcomed a local entertainer to provide the music.
Amanda Searle, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had a lovely time and we brought in 2017 in style. Everyone was up on their feet, singing and dancing the night away. Everyone here at Flower Park would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.”
New Year’s Day saw the residents get the year off to a great start by pitting their wits against each other in a game of cards.

As Big Ben’s chimes welcomed in New Year, many of us were thinking about resolutions we’d start and attempt to maintain throughout 2017.
Whilst many of us were just starting 2017, Gail Starling, Home Manager at Warrior Park Care Home in Hartlepool, and her family were up and about, beginning their resolutions of starting the year on the healthy foot.
Gail Starling, explained: “The Starling family went out on a staggering 15.8 mile walk to welcome in the new year. Although it was all good fun for us, we also wanted to make a difference to the lives of the residents in Warrior Park. So we asked for sponsorship to help us complete the challenge.
“Thanks to everyone’s kind donations we raised £200 which we can use at the home to provide special experiences for the residents on a day to day basis. When I went back into the home and broke the good news, the residents were so excited that they eagerly started talking about how to spend the money.”
Everyone at Four Seasons Health Care strives to provide special experiences for the residents in their care on a daily basis. These experiences can vary depending on the wants and wishes of each individual resident. No matter what it is, as long as we make a difference to residents' lives.
