Canterbury Care Home Hosts Memorial Service for Those Lost to Covid
Staff and residents of Connors House Residential Care Home in Canterbury paid tribute to those they lost to Covid-19, with a memorial service in the garden.
With the past year having been difficult for us all and many loved ones lost, staff and residents of the Craddock Road residential care home took some time out to remember those we lost.
They made some creative artwork, which included photos and names of those who sadly passed away due to Covid-19 and displayed it in the garden, ahead of the memorial service. A tree was also planted in the garden, in memory of those lost.
The service included readings and songs, and the residents and staff also took some time to remember a staff member, who sadly passed away suddenly last year, not due to Covid-19.
Christine Devlin, Home Manager of Connors House said: “It has been an exceptionally tough year with many loved ones lost due to Covid-19, so we wanted to give our staff and residents the opportunity to reflect on this and take some time to remember those who are sadly no longer with us.
“The memorial was a lovely opportunity for everyone to do that together. As a team and family we have supported one another throughout the pandemic and we will continue to do so.”
