"It was a joy and pleasure to get everyone together... it was like a big happy family gathering!"
Residents at Cossins House Care Home recently enjoyed forming new friendships over a lunchtime get-together.
The idea was inspired by one of our residents Vivian who said there our some people within our home who he hasn’t got to know yet... so we thought we would change that!
Our team organised a special buffet lunch and encouraged residents to get to know those who they don't usually sit with or may not have chatted to before.
Residents and team enjoyed all sitting and chatting together over the delicious buffet meal. Afterwards we enjoyed a performance by singer Lizzie Hales from Reminisce Entertains alongside a glass of our all time favourite Sherry.
The day was a great success and we will be doing this more regularly here at Cossins House!
Lisa, Magic Moments Coordinator said, "It was a joy and pleasure to get everyone together, even those who usually eat in their rooms. It was like a big happy family gathering!"
Resident Vivian said, "It was a lovely lunch and it was delightful to sit with others and enjoy new conversations."
At Cossins House 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.
