Last weekend Fives Court made a lemonade and sweet trolley to visit residents in their rooms. They had a selection of fizzy drinks and pick n mix sweets! Residents said that it was so colourful and brought back lovely memories of going to the sweet shop with their pocket money when they were younger!
Residents have been creating these beautiful multi-textured 3D pieces of art. Pat would like to show you her masterpiece!
The lockdown has also been difficult for families and friends of loved ones in our homes who have, until recently, been unable to visit. Here’s what some of them had to say on the independent review website - carehome.co.uk
I cannot praise Paternoster House staff enough during this Coronvavirus pandemic, they were totally prepared, keeping us informed of what was happening, constantly cleaning and appeared to have plenty of PPE and were well prepared to go into lockdown well ahead of it actually happening.
Being told you’ve tested positive for the virus can be a very worrying time; we spoke to some of our residents who have recovered from COVID-19 and here’s what they had to say.
When I knew about COVID-19 I was worried, very worried. I don’t have a secret to getting better because I didn’t know I was ill – I’m looking forward to a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich – thank you, you wonderful carers.
Happy 100th birthday, Dicky!
A HUGE HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY to one of our residents, Dicky! The entire Henley Town Council came to sing him Happy Birthday - it was a beautiful moment! ❤
Socially distanced visits!
We are so pleased that we are now offering controlled visits so that family members can come and see their relatives again! It was absolutely beautiful seeing them all reunite - reminds us all why we love our jobs so much! 🥰
