A number of sons and daughters joined their mothers at Connors House Residential Home on Mother’s Day, where they celebrated with a special afternoon tea.
The Canterbury residential home was full to the brim with residents and relatives celebrating the importance of family with one another on Sunday.
Staff had done an excellent job of decorating the home with banners and balloons, as well as setting the tables with the finest cutlery and finishing with some beautiful flowers.
The residents and their guests were invited to dine on a delicious afternoon tea of freshly prepared sandwiches, cakes and biscuits, whilst they nattered away with one another and sipped on cups of tea.
Bev Furr, activity co-ordinator and Sara Bond, a carer at the home, organised the afternoon and Sara’s mum even came along to the event, so they could spend some quality time together on Mother’s Day.
Christine Devlin, home manager of Connors House said: “The afternoon tea was a great success and everyone who came along said they had a wonderful time.
“One of the most beneficial things about living in a care home is that when our residents’ relatives visit, they can enjoy spending quality time together, not worrying about appointments or medication, it really is lovely to see and to be a part of.”
