Easter fun and games with the children from Wyetots

Ross Court Care Home, Herefordshire-Liam finds one of the Easter eggs in the garden

The children from Wyetots childminding group joined residents at Ross Court Court Care Home to celebrate Easter this year.

We started by seeing what the Easter Bunny had brought with an egg hunt in our garden and residents helped the children in their quest to collect the hidden decorative eggs. Once they had found five each we moved onto the serious business of searching for the chocolate versions which we took inside and eagerly shared out.

Then it was time for singing and dancing with our pom poms and the children treated us to a lively performance of The Rowing Boat Song.

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Clare said “Our residents had a great time helping the children hunt for eggs. Pam was so delighted to see them running around having fun that she cried tears of happiness.”

Eight-year-old Liam “This is the first time I have visited Ross Court and I can’t wait to come back and see everyone again.”

At Ross Court 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.

Ross Court Care Home is located in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, and provides residential care and respite care.
