Seeing in the summer with a garden party!

Residents at Albany Care Home in Headington celebrate summer

“What a nice afternoon we have had in the garden together, the lovely weather made it even more enjoyable for us!”

Residents at Albany Care Home recently welcomed in the summer months with their first garden party of the season.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous, residents and their families joined the team at Albany for a fun filled day, with entertainment from Mr Brian Slade.

We had a table of drinks and nibbles for everyone to enjoy. Everybody had a brilliant time listening to Brian perform and our Senior Carer Emily even came up to sing a bit of karaoke!

It was a wonderful day and everyone had fun laughing and talking with each other.

Emily Senior Carer said, “What a nice afternoon we have had in the garden together, the lovely weather we had made it even more enjoyable for us!”

Resident Eileen said, “Listen to Emily sing! She is very good.”

At Albany Care Home 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.

Albany Care Home is located in Headington, Oxfordshire, and provides nursing care and respite care.
