Every resident celebrates their birthday in a way of their own choice. Some residents enjoy a birthday party with all the other residents involved. This month we held a large 1960's themed celebration party. This included lots of 1960's memorabilia for everyone to look at and to touch, leading to lots of conversations about passed times. The birthday girl and a few other residents dressed up in 1960's vintage clothing enjoying an afternoon of dancing to their favourite tunes.
Other residents chose to have a quiet celebration enjoying their gifts and personally themed birthday cakes. The kitchen teams were kept busy making knitting and hairdressing themed cakes, along with more traditional cakes.
At Whitebeach a special couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Staff decorated the garden, where tea and cake was enjoyed in the sunshine.
Birthdays and other significant celebrations are always special at Coast Care, but at the moment where family and friends are unable to be involved as much as they normally would, the days are made even more special by the Coast Care family.
