Residents at St Peters Court have been busy having lots of funResidents at St Peters Court, residential and residential dementia care home in Redcar, have been busy having lots of fun with people in the local community.

On the 22nd of November, a coffee morning was held at the 67-bed care home. 

One of the Residents, two daughters had stalls with us and had lots of interest. They had lots of knitted items, crafts and some lovely goodies for Residents too look at and purchase.  The two ladies will be coming along to the Christmas fair. 

Both Residents and Relatives were welcomed into the home to share some coffee and cake. Eve, a Colleague at St Peters Court made the most gorgeous cakes, as always, which everyone enjoyed.  

There were lots of happy faces, chatting to one another, and meeting up of old friends. Everyone is looking forward to the next one.

One Resident, commented, “It is lovely to see people coming into the home to support our special event.”

St Peters Court hold coffee mornings monthly, the next one being Thursday 15th December.

Then on the 23rd of November, students from Middlesborough Collage came along to the home to do some crafting with the Residents.

A fantastic morning was had by the Residents, making and painting Christmas decorations.  

The morning started with breakfast buns then the serious business of crafting started.  The students and Residents all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were crafting and chatting happily.  

The students wanted to know about Residents lives, where they used to live and work, and the Residents chatted about what the students wanted to do career wise.

June was sat alongside Manny the student who was crafting with her, she even shared her chocolate with him! They also stayed for tea and cake after. 

One of the Colleagues at St Peters Court, said, “It was lovely seeing both groups enjoying each other’s company. The students were all so polite and thanked the Residents for allowing them to come into their home.”

Jamie Stephenson, Care Home Manager, remarked, “What a lovely morning everyone had and we are looking forward to seeing the students again.”
