Belper care home residents treated to some royal pampering


Meghan Markle wasn’t the only princess in town as residents at Milford House care home in Belper were treated to some royal pampering and tiaras, before settling down in style to watch the celebrations unfold.


Activity co-ordinator Vicky Layton wanted to make this day about the residents not just the royal couple, and what better way to make the residents feel special then with a bit of pampering.

Vicky Layton and Kathryn White gave all the ladies a makeover, painting their nails and styling their hair before finishing off the looks with tiaras.


“Everyone was so excited to watch the royal wedding at Milford House, we had a street party, with decorations and afternoon tea, but the highlight was seeing all of the residents dressed up for the occasion.” said Vicky.


One resident, Gerry Dyer, who lives at Milford House with his wife Valerie Dyer, said, “The day was absolutely marvellous. It was great to watch such a momentous event in such fun surroundings and Vicky did a fantastic job of spoiling my wife, who looked even more beautiful than normal following a makeover.


I very much enjoyed the street party especially as we had our granddaughter and her husband visiting us and joining in the festivities with us.” 


The fun didn’t stop there, and the residents even had a visit from Milford Care’s very own Prince Harry (Alan Gasgill, care assistant) and Meghan Markley, (Amy Robertshaw, care assistant), dressed head to toe in their wedding attire. The catering team also did an amazing job, presenting “Harry and Meghan” with a delicious homemade wedding cake.


“I’m so please that everyone had an amazing day on Saturday.” added Sheila Barwick, care home manager, “It was fantastic to see all of the lovely photos of all the residents dressed up and having a great time.”


“We love arranging activities that all of our residents, and their families can take part in at Milford House.”
