Residents at Mill House Care Home have marked Valentine’s Day by holding a Remembrance Service for our loved ones.
Our local Vicar, Jason, read out remembrance messages our residents had written on paper hearts, and we planted them in our garden along with a beautiful hellebore that will continue to flower around Valentine’s Day each year.
After the service we were delighted to welcome our four-legged friends Mario and Peggy along with their owner Janie from ‘Canine Concern’ who visit regularly to provide pet therapy and lots of love and cuddles for our residents.
In the afternoon, entertainer Brian came along and performed some favourite love songs which got us singing along and up on the dancefloor too!
Team member Nate said, “It was emotional but lovely to spend time remembering our loved ones on Valentine’s Day, as well as having fun together singing and dancing to some romantic old favourites.”
At Mill 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.
