The Residents of Gittisham Hill House
residential, nursing and dementia care home, in Devon, are really enjoying their special visitor this June and have loved nothing more than the opportunity to get a selfie with “Her Majesty the Queen.”
Everyone at the home is building up to the Jubilee celebrations this week, in preparation for the home’s garden party on Friday 3rd June, where they will all enjoy music, a special buffet and ice-cream in the garden.
Residents enjoyed watching others take it in turns to have a selfie with the Queen (see pictured) and had such fun together. One of the Residents said, “Can I please have my photo taken with the Queen?”
Another Resident joked, “The queen is an amazing person, isn’t she? It’s nice she can join us!”
Julia Heneker, Home Manager, commented, “People living with dementia especially seem to light up when the talk turns to royal reminiscence and chat about the Queen’s Coronation and the Platinum Jubilee.”
