Alan’s Valentine is ready to buzz all the way to his wife’s heart! ❤

Hungerford Care Home, Berkshire-Alan with his homemade Valentine's Day card for his wife

"Alan's face was lit up with the biggest smile which was so lovely to see. He can’t wait to surprise his wife on Valentine’s Day."

With the most romantic day of the year approaching, resident Alan, who lives here at Hungerford Care Home, has been busy creating a romantic Valentine’s Day card for his wife.

Alan had been chatting to team members Luly and Hari about his wife and decided a homemade card would be an ideal way to send his love to her on Valentine’s Day.

We got out our craft box and Alan chose red card and decorated it with colourful hearts. Inside he drew a bee and said, “It can buzz all the way to my wife’s heart!”

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Sarah said, “Alan really enjoyed making a Valentine’s Day card for his wife and his face was lit up with the biggest smile which was so lovely to see. He can’t wait to surprise his wife on Valentine’s Day.”

At Hungerford we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents.

The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.

Hungerford Care Home is located in Hungerford Newtown, Berkshire and provides ​​nursing caredementia carepalliative care and respite care.
