On 18th October, The Berkshire Care Home in Wokingham had a fun filled day with their Wow Factor event – a talent show which celebrates the talents of team members and residents!
It was a fantastic opportunity for our residents who love music and singing, with a number of great performances! Our Manager Caroline and our Carers Clair, Tracey and Matt took part in the competition supported by our resident Ron playing the guitar. Ron played almost throughout the whole show - the sounds of his guitar were enjoyed very much by everybody!
Shaneen our Receptionist also performed the very popular song for us: ‘You are my Sunshine’. Everybody started singing along, it was a joyous moment. Our lovely resident Jean sang another song supported by her friends and professional singer Mitch. In the end we voted the best talented and Ron was the winner of competition!
The day was even more special as we celebrated Jean’s 90th birthday during the event. Her family came all the way from Wales to visit and she was very happy. They even brought a beautiful cake for her which made the atmosphere sweet and festive!
Magic Moments Club Assistant Tejasri Nuna said, “The Wow Factor event was a fun, happy and hilarious event, where everybody, residents and team members, enjoyed taking part in the competition and having fun.”
At The Berkshire 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.
The Berkshire Care Home is located in Wokingham, Berkshire and provides nursing care, palliative care, residential care and respite care.
