Here is everything that is happening over Christmas at Taymer Nursing Home!
Marg wore her best purple coat to keep warm when she had a 1-1 with Heather - to collect autumnal items from the trees and hedgerows down the road from Taymer. She pointed out berries and leaves on trees - as being brought up locally in Ampthill she knew all the names of the berries and trees. In the afternoon we showed the other residents what she had identified and we enjoyed looking and handling the collection.
Our residents welcomed the Silsoe Songsters who have been singing voluntary at Taymer for over 5 years.
They planned a full programme of songs to sing and invited the residents to sing along with them. At the end of their presentation the group were invited out into the garden area where Heather served them tea and biscuits. It was too hot for the residents to go outside and they preferred to stay in the cool lounge area.
The group have already agreed to sing for us again during 2019 and we look forward to seeing them too.
When Doreen recently turned 90 her family gave her a lovely birthday surprise when daughter Lisa and grandchildren Chloe and Millie came to Taymer to give a ballet, modern dance and gymnastics display.The residents loved to see such talented youngsters and were amazed at their talent. Linda, Doreen’s other daughter brought in her new little puppy to show Doreen too. After blowing out the candles on her birthday cake, it was shared with the residents at afternoon tea.
