Milestone celebrations

10 October 2016

Two of our care homes reached huge milestones this month! Here's how they decided to celebrate the occasion. 

Magical moments

Residents and staff enjoying the anniversary disco

Newlands House in Swadlincote celebrated 30 years since it first opened in 1986.

The home added a magical element to the occasion with a magician who mesmerised staff and residents alike!

It was a pantomime hosted by staff, however, which was the true highlight of the day!

Celebrations didn't end there, as staff and residents continued through the evening with a disco, showing there's no doubt our care homes know how to party!

The night ended on a high, with long-standing staff members being recognised for their invaluable work at an awards ceremony.

‘It was an honour to be part of Newlands House's 30-year celebrations and see staff and people who use our service past and present enjoy the special day.’ — Aarti Popat, service manager

Party like it's 1976

Volunteers receiving their certificates

Arnold House in Enfield celebrated 40 years since they first opened their doors in 1976.

The home is clearly well-loved as members of the local community joined staff and residents for a day of celebrations!

Guests were treated to an outstanding performance by local singer Dennis Lewin, followed by a tour to show off the home's new wet room, patio extension and bungalow refurbishment.

It was volunteers who took centre stage as the home threw a thank you party in honour of their hard work — complete with cake stalls and a tombola!

‘I think the staff were amazing and kind. Love was everywhere and the people who live here were able to fully appreciate the event.’ — Ray Gershman, volunteer
