Residents at HC One’s The Beeches care home enjoyed a day reminiscent of being at the seaside, complete with ice creams.
Everyone enjoyed a delicious 99 ice cream with a choice of chocolate or raspberry sauce on top.
As staff served the ice creams there was ice cream van music playing out in the home. Some of the tunes brought back memories for the Residents, including ‘summer holiday’ by Cliff Richard and ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’.
Colleagues and Residents all reminisced of being on holiday or trips to the seaside.
It was a very enjoyable morning and everyone enjoyed their ice creams and having a laugh together.
Resident Joan commented “It’s been a lovely morning, I’ve not had ice cream for ages, it was very tasty!” and Ivy said “what a nice treat for us, I really enjoyed today thank-you.”
Wellbeing coordinator Sade said “the ice cream morning was lovely, everyone enjoyed themselves and the ice creams went down really well. It was nice to have a sing-a-long and reminisces.”
