Annual festivities are back at Acacia care homeNottingham’s Acacia residential, nursing and memory care home have been very busy preparing for Christmas which included a trip to the playhouse for a pantomime as well as a visit from the local school carol singers. 

On 8th December, Residents went on an outing to Nottingham Playhouse to watch the local ‘Beauty and the Beast’ pantomime. For some Residents, it was the first time they had been out on the minibus in two years, due to restrictions. 

Colleagues described how it was lovely to see everyone happy and smiling, with lots of excitement. Residents commented on how beautiful the costumes were, with so much colour. 

The ladies who went had their hair done by the home’s hairdresser and put on their best outfits for the occasion. 

Glenys Winson, Care Home Manager, commented, “A fabulous day out, all enjoyed it so much!” 

On 10th December, Westbury Academy school visited the home outdoors and did some beautiful carol singing for the Residents to enjoy. 

The Residents all said its just wonderful to see and hear them singing and waving hands at the garden windows.

Glenys added, “Everyone loved seeing the children visit and listening to the beautiful Christmas carols.”
