It's been a fun filled fortnight

Trinity Village

Not that Catholic Homes ever needs an excuse for a party, but Trinity Village’s resident Charlotte Oswald recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Happy birthday Charlotte and we wish you many more wonderful birthdays to come!

Marist Lodge

It was game, set and match as Marist Lodge served up a Wimbledon brunch for residents on 10 July 2018. Chef Parween Ramsahye worked her culinary magic with a buffet of smoked salmon croutons, vegetarian samosas and spring rolls, deep fried camembert, beef and chicken sliders, bangers and mash, plus a cake fit for champions. The fruity Pimm’s cocktails went down a treat.

 

 

Occupational Therapist Alison Alty ordered decorations from the UK especially for the occasion. The staff enjoyed organising the event almost as much as the residents loved the festive atmosphere, decorations and food.

Fire and Ice was the theme of the Sensory Sensations event held in June. Parween created a taste testing experience which filled the dining room with laughter, chatter and delicious food. The chocolate fountain was the star of the show. Nicola Frew, our Pastoral Care Practitioner, put on a lovely song and prayer service prior to the event.

And judging by the faces on the children, the toys were a big hit.

 

St Vincent’s

St Vincent’s celebrated NAIDOC Week 8-15 July by making damper. The theme is “Because of her, we can,” which celebrates the essential role that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play – as active and significant role models at community, local, state and national levels.

Castledare Village

Dinosaurs might be extinct but the smiles on our Castledare residents certainly weren't when they visited the Museum of Natural History in Guildford. As the owners gave us a tour and talk on their fascinating work with taxidermy, our residents became engrossed among the collection which ranged from a flamingo skeleton to dinosaurs to all kinds of birds hidden among the nooks and crannies. Well worth the visit at any age!
