A salute to Fatherhood

As Father's Day approaches, we're excited to celebrate all the dads, granddads and father figures who live and work in our care. Recognising the influence, guidance and support they provide to all generations and discovering just what Father’s Day means to them.

It’s a time to chat and exchange memories and experiences as well as receiving lots of visits from families and friends eager to share the day with those they love.

For many of our residents and team member, Father’s Day triggers nostalgic, happy moments – remembering a pastime or hobby shared with loved ones. For others it provokes a smile and sense of comfort – thinking about the chats, giggles, tender moments that remain forever special. It’s a day to enjoy doing what they love most – Whether spending time with family, a trip to the football match, enjoying a pint in the bar, gardening, listening to a favourite album or just reading and chatting.

Enjoying dad’s favourite activities & discovering new ones

Our residents love to share their life stories with us so things can be arranged that we know  they’ll enjoy. It could be spending time doing the things they always used to love or trying something new. A trip to the pub for lunch and a pint, an afternoon in the garden or tickets to cheer on their favourite sports team. Many of our homes have a Gentlemen’s Club where the world is put to rights over a tipple, a game of cards and lots of friendly banter.

And of course this wonderful day can also bring out humour with some hilarious father’s Day jokes being shared with one another. To finish we thought you may be interested in some that we heard recently in one of our homes.
