On the 21st April, Residents at HC-One’s Stadium Court
care home in Stoke celebrated the Queen's 95th birthday.
It was a lovely day on the Queens birthday, the sun was shining and everyone was excited for the day ahead. On the morning of the big day, Colleagues decorated the homes gardens with Union Jack buntings and pictures of the Queen.
They also set three tables out with bone china cups and saucers. Knowing a lot of Residents worked on the famous pot banks, Royal Doulton and Wedgwood in Stoke on Trent, Colleagues wanted to see if these evoked memories of their time there.
The Residents loved it and did recognise the china. They started to reminisce about their happy times working on the "pots". Afterwards, Residents sang Happy Birthday and enjoyed a toast to the Queen with prosecco flowing.
Doreen, a Resident at Stadium Court said: “How lovely it is to be out in the sunshine and everything looks wonderful the way it’s been set out.”
Part of a residential community in Stoke-on-Trent, Stadium Court is a friendly care home with 110 beds, offering residential, nursing, residential dementia and nursing dementia care.
