St George's Day celebrations!

Meyrick Rise Care Home in Bournemouth celebrate st georges day

Residents at Meyrick Rise Care Home recently celebrated St Georges Day by decorating cupcakes and taking part in a quiz.

We had a bit of a different celebration this year, due to the current circumstances, however we still managed to have a really fun time! Our Magic Moments Club team went room to room helping residents ice cupcakes in the English flag colours which was brilliant fun. The cakes were delicious. We also had a quiz about some classic English facts and then created a leader board so the residents could see where they came compared to everyone else! Resident, Regina, got top marks which was very impressive and won the top prize!

Resident, Sylvia, said “These are the best cakes I’ve tasted since I have lived here, more soon I hope!”

Team member, Leanne, said “A lovely afternoon, the residents really enjoyed helping decorate cakes and loved a bit of competition on the quiz to win a prizes!”

At Meyrick Rise Care Home 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.

Meyrick Rise Care Home is located in Bournemouth, Dorset and provides ​residential carenursing carepalliative care and respite care.
