Gravesend Residents Celebrate Mother’s Day

Despite having no visitors, staff at Edward Moore House Residential Care Home in Gravesend ensured residents had an enjoyable Mothers’ Day.

With the country in lockdown due to coronavirus, staff had to cancel the anticipated afternoon tea celebration for residents and their families and try something different instead.

But they didn’t let the ongoing pandemic get them down, as they invited residents to enjoy a celebratory glass of fizz, whilst opening their cards and gifts, and chatting to their loved ones on the phone.

Christine Hutchinson, General Manager of Edward Moore House said: “Of course it was disappointing that we were unable to host our Mother’s Day tea with our residents and their loved ones, but we adapted to the situation and everyone had a lovely afternoon regardless of the situation.

“We made sure all of the mums could speak to their families on the phone and we held a little mini celebration within the home instead!”
