World Book Day & Birthdays At Bank Close House Care Home In Chesterfield

It’s been busy, busy busy this week at Bank Close House care home in Chesterfield.

We celebrated Doreen’s 93rd Birthday on 3rd March.  She had visits from her family during the morning and had plenty of cards and presents to open.   In the evening we had a buffet tea with a lovely cake and all the residents and staff sang Happy Birthday to her. Doreen had a lovely birthday and really enjoyed her day. She thanked everyone for all their effort and best wishes.

The 5th March was World Book Day, a day to celebrate books and stories in all their forms and glory. Barbara and John were pointing out countries on the Globe in the hallway and talking about where they had visited. Garry has been reading his football programmes and Jean has been “exercising her brain” by doing some puzzles. Joan has been having “doll therapy” in the lounge and Hazel has been looking at pictures in a book. 

John has also been arranging the artificial plants in the Conservatory – Alan Titchmarsh eat your heart out!
