Peter's 100th Birthday Celebrations
The team went above and beyond to make sure it was a birthday to remember
The residents and team at Grace Care Centre thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the celebrations with Peter for his 100th birthday this weekend.
Ahead of the weekend, the team at Grace Care Centre spoke to Peter and his loved ones to help ensure he had a birthday weekend to remember.
On the Saturday, Peter asked if he could have a celebration at Grace Care Centre with his fellow residents. The team asked if he would like them to book an entertainer to come into the home for the party, this was an easy choice for Peter… he wanted a belly dancer after enjoying a previous visit they made to the home!
Following this clear instruction, the team booked for a belly dancer to come to the home for the day and entertain Peter and the other residents whilst they enjoyed an indoor BBQ.
Peter is very popular amongst everyone at Grace Care Centre, and they all wanted to go above and beyond to make the weekend special. Tony, is one of our residents who has a passion for baking and he asked to work with our Head Chef to bake the 100th birthday cake for his friend Peter. The final cake was a true masterpiece with each number a different flavour of fruit cake, Victoria sponge and chocolate.
The team also decorated the café and dining areas of the home especially for the party and wore 1940s attire on the day to mark one of Peter’s favourite eras. Peter was delighted to receive his card from the Queen and an engraved glass from OSJCT.
On the Sunday, Peter’s actual birthday, he went to visit some of his family and friends locally. Our Head Chef, Raz, and the team provided catering for the private party and it was wonderful to see Peter being able to celebrate his birthday weekend the way he wanted.
