Residents at Hempton Field Care Home recently had a special visit from singer Dave Owen who appeared on the Michael Macintyre TV show as the ‘star for the night’.
One of our team members met Dave in their local pub where they got chatting about Hempton Field and he kindly offered to come and perform for us. Dave brought along his friend Jordan, who is part of the tribute band ‘Jersey Guys’ and the pair put on an exclusive show just for us.
Dave was 91 when he performed on Michael Macintyre’s show and is the oldest 'unexpected star' ever to appear on the programme.
Everyone enjoyed listening to the brilliant performances and we were soon singing along with Dave - he even took requests so that we could hear our favourite songs.
Dave said "I've had a brilliant afternoon, what a great atmosphere, I'd love to come and sing for your residents again soon."
Team member, Nina, said "We are really excited that Dave is going to come and sing for us again, he's really talented!"
At Hempton Field 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.
