Care Home Residents Stay Upbeat for St Patrick’s Day Celebrations
Despite the fears over Coronavirus, residents of Dene Holm Residential Care Home in Northfleet have been staying positive and still got together to mark St Patrick’s Day.
Staff are keen to ensure their residents experience normality in what is proving a difficult time, so aside from a not having their usual visitors, it’s business as usual in our homes.
Residents got into the spirit of the Irish holiday, trying on plenty of silly ties and hats, listening to Irish music and telling stories of myths and legends from Irish folklore.
Chris Hutchinson, General Manager of Dene Holm said: “As much as we are in the middle of a pandemic, it’s important for us that our residents’ lives continue as normally as possible, so we enjoyed our St Patrick’s Day celebrations. It was great fun, with plenty of laughs, which is nice to be a part of at a time like this.”
