Sophie (carer) voluntarily gave her time to help set up the Christmas tree in the lounge. To see the finished result was wonderful to behold. The Nativity Scene was erected. Shaun ensured the external lights were put up to welcome visitors at this time of season. The lights are also seen as people in cars pass by. NOW WE ARE READY FOR THE CELEBRATIONS.
Our team effort this year consisted of service projects.
- Following the old English tradition of stirring the Christmas Pudding mixture – residents gave a good old stir before it was taken back to the kitchen for steaming.
- Christmas cards were lovingly made by the residents for their family and friends.
- Sweets treats were wrapped for when the Primary School and Brownies came to sing.
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.
Here is everything that is happening over Christmas at Taymer Nursing Home!
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.
