Here at Rotherwood Care Home in Rotherham our residents had the most wonderful VE day preparations and celebrations last week.
Andrea and our lovely staff trimmed the home beautifully with all sorts of decorations, including ones made by the residents.
On the day, our staff came in fancy dress and the morning was spent watching old war movies.
Later on we had all sorts of activities and games, including a game of World War II themed skittles, which everyone enjoyed and which got quite competitive!
War-time songs were being played, which residents were singing to along to with our staff and the activities coordinator.
Our thoroughly enjoyable VE Day celebrations were finished off with a lovely buffet tea, along with red, white and blue cupcakes.
Our residents have had a great time recently with Valentines Day craft activities, pet therapy and Valentine’s Day celebrations and party.
Everyone really enjoyed the events and loved the pet therapy. We had Dave Jay entertain us on Valentine’s Day and he even got the staff up singing to the residents, which they all thoroughly enjoyed.
Sandra brought Coco in for pet therapy, which every resident took part in, even our bed bound residents. Coco brought a huge smile to everyone’s faces!
