Back to the 60s for our Summer Festival

Meyrick Rise Care Home in Bournemouth hold their own 1960s summer festival

“It was great to have everybody outside singing all the 60s classics – they all had a great time”

Meyrick Rise Care Home recently held their own summer 60s festival. We invited residents, relatives and members of the local community to join us for a day of fun out in the garden.

Residents and team members dressed up in their best hippie wear sporting their favourite psychedelic colours. We all accessorised with wristbands and peace necklaces made by our residents!

Thankfully, there was no sign of jumping in festival mud with Wellingtons as we were blessed with glorious warm sunshine! Our BBQ kicked off at midday with delicious burgers and hot dogs, followed by ice creams all round to cool us down.  

Paul Spence provided afternoon entertainment singing our favourite 60s songs and residents got the chance to have a picture with their very own VW camper van! The afternoon concluded with party games and Pimms all round.

At Meyrick Rise 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.

Meyrick Rise Care Home is located in Bournemouth, Dorset and provides nursing carepalliative careresidential care and respite care.
