Tears were flowing from both staff and residents when we gave Mark the surprise of his life, after 20 years he was reunited with his sister. We arranged for Rose to visit her brother on Monday which went down a treat lots of old memories and stories were shared, which left mark with a big smile on his face as he reminisced over the good old days!
For the rest of the residents the week has been quite busy with lots of our weekly activities, alongside our families visiting their loved ones. Thursday was particularly busy when they spent their whole day being pampered in the Lilly room with a nice glass of wine getting ready for the nights event.
Thursday night was a success both men and women got all dressed up in their best clothes to celebrate National Armed Forces Day , where two lovely ladies Katie and Sarah sung several old time war songs!
We are now all waiting on the summer weather we have been promised to get into the Wimbledon spirit, and enjoy a nice Pimms and lemonade in the sunshine!
