Rogers House Residents Celebrate Love in Lockdown
Love was all around at the Drewery Drive residential care home in Wigmore this week, where residents enjoyed an array of Valentine’s themed activities.
The week kicked off with some creative crafting, some of the artistic residents worked together to make a giant patchwork heart of lots of small different printed hearts, which they then used to decorate the dining room.
Some sweet treats were also on offer as residents enjoyed a chocolate themed activity too, after all, it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without melted chocolate. They made chocolate dipped strawberries and Rice Krispie cakes topped with chocolate hearts, ready to serve at their special Valentine’s Day lunch, though a few may have been sampled during the activity, just as a taste test, of course.
On Valentine’s Day they got together to celebrate love in all its forms with a very special lunch. The dining room was adorned with heart bunting and the tables were decorated with fresh flowers, crochet hearts and pots of Love Heart sweets, the perfect backdrop for their Valentine’s party.
The residents were served a glass of Bucks Fizz on arrival and tucked into a delicious Sunday lunch with all the trimmings, followed by strawberries and cream for dessert and the delicious petit fours that they previously made especially for the occasion.
Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House said: “Our residents had a great time getting stuck into the Valentine’s activities this week. We are like one big family here and many of the residents have formed very strong friendships since moving in with us, so it was lovely to get together and celebrate all things love, especially after such a difficult year.”
