Henleigh Hall Care Home host The Oscars for their residents and team members.
Our team organised an exciting day for our residents to enjoy our very own Oscar awards! Like the real Academy Awards, our residents strutted their stuff on the red carpet whilst getting their photo snapped by paparazzi. Here at Henleigh Hall we love to make a big entrance, so it was essential to put up a golden curtain for our residents to emerge from when entering our ceremony room. We got some fantastic shots and our residents loved the celebrity treatment!
Throughout our ceremony, we watched some fantastic performances as our team and residents did great tributes of iconic singers. We enjoyed watching Doris Day, Madonna, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior and the list goes on! Everyone did a fantastic job and we all couldn’t stop giggling!
Of course, it wouldn’t be the Oscars without some awards! Our residents gave out awards to our team members for everything they do. It was such a thoughtful gesture and our all our team members were thrilled with the awards they won.
Our team member, Vicki said, “Today was truly magical! The faces of our residents as they came down the red carpet and through the curtain were amazing. They beamed from ear to ear. Our residents and the teams performed great tribute acts; everyone was interacting, even if they were just nodding in time to the music. Two of our residents performed themselves! I love being here, you never know what’s going to happen next.”
To end our fantastic day, the one and only Tina Turner closed the show with Henleigh Hall’s theme tune, ‘You’re simply the best’.
