Laurels Lodge pays tribute to Doris Day

Residents and staff at Laurels Lodge Care Home in Aberdeen enjoyed an afternoon remembering Doris Day, following news last week of her death at the age of 97.

They displayed photos of the much-loved Hollywood star in different films, talked about her movies and played some of her songs, to which residents knew many of the words and enjoyed singing along.

Resident George had been a huge fan of the iconic film star and throughout the afternoon he hugged her photo, and afterwards asked if he could keep it. Smiles and some tears from other residents showed how much they had loved Doris Day.

Home Manager Sheila Gesma said:

"The afternoon was really enjoyed by all. Doris Day touched so many lives during her prime years and even more recently and her legacy will remain.

"Seeing our residents having fun and singing was very moving for my team, and it was a lovely thing to have done together."
