Firth House care home celebrates 30th anniversary
Firth House care home celebrated its pearl anniversary on Friday, 4th June.
Residents and the care team at Anchor’s Firth House care home in Firth Mews celebrated with a pearl themed garden party to mark the home’s 30th anniversary.
Although a party with invited guests was not possible due to coronavirus restrictions, there was plenty planned for the festivities. Graham Bilbrough, former lead singer of the 1980s group Child, kicked off the party with a concert. A summer buffet followed with local pork pie and fruit kebabs on the menu and, for those with a sweet tooth, a chocolate fountain topped off the meal.
Gwen Herring, 98, resident at Anchor’s Firth House care home said:
I really enjoy living at Firth House. This year has been different with all the restrictions, but the care team is amazing and have done their best to ensure we are still entertained and that we are kept safe and well. The party was a lot of fun.
Anchor’s Firth House care home cares for up to 40 residents, some of whom are living with dementia. The home manager, Pearl Millin, has also celebrated her 30th anniversary.
Pearl, who started as a care assistant the day the home opened, rose up through the ranks and became home manager in 2002. During her career she has also supported other Anchor care homes in Yorkshire, Lancashire and London. She said:
I started here at Anchor’s Firth House care home on day one and had the opportunity to develop within the organisation. Working in care is extremely fulfilling and I am proud of all the members of the care team who continuously provide meaningful activities for residents to enjoy and the care they need. We had a fun day to mark our 30th anniversary and it was great to celebrate with residents.
