Memories of our first loves on Valentine’s Day ❤

The Lawns Care Home, Leicestershire-Resident Norah with her red rose for Valentine's Day

"It was so nice to spend time reminiscing about our first loves which brought back lots of happy memories"

Residents at The Lawns Care Home have been reminiscing about their first loves and we decided to capture each story they shared and create a display of happy romantic memories to mark Valentine’s Day.

The Magic Moments Club team continued to spread the love and delivered a chocolate rose or fresh red rose to all our residents before we headed out to Wistow Garden Centre for more floral inspiration and a cuppa and cake in the café.

In the afternoon we enjoyed being serenaded by entertainer Roger who played his guitar and sang us some favourite love songs.

Resident Derek said, “What a lovely gesture giving us all a rose, I shall save mine for my granddaughter.”

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Gez said, "It was so nice to spend time reminiscing about our first loves which brought back lots of happy memories."

At The Lawns 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 Lawns Care Home is located in Oadby, Leicestershire and provides ​residential care and respite care.
