Care home residents visit Canterbury for a day of festivities


Staff of Connors House Residential Care Home in Canterbury treated residents to a day of Christmas shopping in the city centre and a festive pub lunch.

With Christmas now just around the corner, residents of the Craddock Road residential care home were keen to head out and do some Christmas shopping, so staff of the home kindly volunteered to take them on a festive outing.

The residents spent the morning stocking up on gifts for their loved ones, with the help of the staff, before taking a well-deserved rest and warming up in a cosy pub. They enjoyed a festive lunch together, before heading home with their purchases.

Christine Devlin, Home Manager of Connors House commented: “Some of our residents expressed an interest in going out to do some Christmas shopping and a few of our members of staff kindly offered to accompany them.

“We are keen to do all we can to enable our residents to remain independent, so it was lovely that our staff could support them with this activity. They had a great morning buying their gifts and are all really looking forward to giving them to their loved ones at Christmas.”
