At York House our amazing team member Phoebe wanted to make every resident feel special on Valentine’s morning, so as well as arranging a host of fun activities she made a special delivery to the home. 

Phoebe was not working on Valentine’s Day, but truly proved the strong bonds between residents and staff by coming in on her day off to deliver a single red rose to each of our residents, as well as a poem which she wrote.

Laurel Lodge 

Laurel Lodge Valentine’s Day 2021.

At Laurel Lodge our residents began Valentine’s day prep early and wrote personalised letters to wish each of our Little Visitors from Friend in Deed a happy Valentine’s Day. Kelly, charity founder, even delivered special messages and cards from our Little Visitors which put big smiles on our residents faces.  

Our residents received special treats in the form of traditional sweet bags, as well as a single red rose each. They also had a lovely meal prepared by our brilliant kitchen team.

Our residents at The Gables got into the Valentine’s Day spirit by creating some amazing clay Valentine’s Day decorations for display in the home. They did a fantastic job and the dining room looked fantastic!

Our residents also got together with activities coordinator Lorna Jones and handcrafted a beautiful card to the staff in the home, thanking them for all their hard work. It means so much to our staff and we love the friendships we have built with our residents. 

Essex Homes: 

Valentines Day at Drummonds 2021.

At Drummonds our residents decided to create a Valentine’s Day themed display on the homes entrance to spread happiness and friendship to the outside world.

They handmade heart cutouts with special messages and displayed them on the homes glass doors, as well as creating custom Valentine’s Day cards for their loved ones, fellow residents and staff.  

We are so incredibly proud of the effort our staff went too, to make this an amazing occasion for our residents regardless of the lockdown.

We know this may not be the way our residents pictured Valentine’s Day 2021 – but we are incredibly humbled by their resilience and ability to smile through it all. 

We will be updating this article with even more news of our home’s Valentine’s Day events!
