Sharing the love – a special Mother’s Day celebration
The Manor House care home in Knaresborough invited families to enjoy their gardens with their loved ones on Sunday 27 March.
Ahead of Mother’s Day, colleagues and residents took part in several activities such as flower arranging and making peppermint creams as gifts.
On Sunday, the residents had a lovely traditional Sunday lunch. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful afternoon surrounded by cards and decorations organised by the care team. Some lovely gifts and cards were also brought in by visitors for their mothers!
Klara Skorupska, Manager of The Manor House, said:
It was lovely to celebrate Mothers’ Day with our residents and their relatives! Mother’s Day is a very special day for celebrating the most important women in our lives.
It means so much to our residents to have their loved ones visit them. We pride ourselves on treating our residents like our own family. However, there’s really no substitute for getting spoiled by your children on Mother’s Day!
Brenda Raines, who has lived at The Manor House for five and a half years, was overjoyed to have her son and daughter-in-law visit her. She said:
I’m so happy I was able to celebrate Mother’s Day with Jeremy and Rose! It means so much to have them here in person.
We’ve always joked that Mother’s Day’s is the one day where all Mums get spoiled but for me, getting to spend time with my loved ones is the greatest treat of all! The team here made such a big effort ensure that we felt special, with beautifully decorated tables at lunch, boxes of chocolates and an afternoon cake trolley simply full of pastries, biscuits and cake for us to enjoy.
