Festive Fun at Rotherwood Care Home in Rotherham

The residents and staff at Rotherwood have had some great fun in the build up to Christmas.

We have enjoyed Christmas Arts & Crafts throughout the month where we have enjoyed making Christmas cards for our loved ones. We have also enjoyed using Lego this month, this has helped some of our residents with focusing and stimulation.

Rotherwood’s Choir have been practising throughout the month for an afternoon Christmas performance, which all residents and staff thoroughly enjoyed taking part in!

On the 1st of December we enjoyed a visit from Father Christmas at Rotherwood. We had hot chocolates, coffees and all residents enjoyed a little present from Father Christmas before he arrives on the 25th of December.

We enjoyed our Christmas Party on the 19th December. We enjoyed mocktails, mince pies, a beautiful buffet and a live singer where we danced the afternoon away. Everyone at Rotherwood really enjoyed celebrating the festive season, and thanked singer Nikki for visiting and making the afternoon so enjoyable.

Bank Close House Christmas Party Enjoyed By All

A wonderful time was had by all at the Bank Close House Christmas party on Friday 13th December!

“Thunderroadz” entertained our residents with songs from across the generations and finished off with an ensemble of Christmas songs.

A fine and festive buffet was held afterwards and all residents drew out the raffle tickets. All the winning tickets are displayed on the Notice Board in reception, so take a look and see if you’re one of the lucky winners!

All the staff and residents enjoyed the singing and entertainment and a massive £320 was raised through the raffle and Christmas market.

The now clean shaven Kyle also raised an additional £237 for his No Shave November.

A residents meeting has also been held where the residents decided they would like some additional decorations in the garden. A selection of pictures were shown to all the residents and they all decided on some metal animal artworks to be displayed around the grounds of the back garden.

Merry Christmas to everyone from all at Bank Close House!
