Stories of times past prompted happy times at Birch Green Care Home on Mother’s Day.
And for Lillian Ford, it was not only Mother’s Day, it was her birthday too, celebrated with a range of residents, staff and family members.
Member of staff specialising in family support, Emma Nelson took the lead in gathering stories from both residents and family members prior to the event.
As the stories were read out by residents, family members and staff , there was a game played called Guess Who’s Story to continue prompting happy memories, which prompted further stories.
Resident Lillian also had her story read out by Karen on behalf of Lillians daughter Joanne after she submitted a written version in a frame which everyone enjoyed.
Later, afternoon tea was enjoyed by all and daffodils were also handed round to everyone.
