Last month at Tower Bridge
in London, which provides residential dementia, nursing and nursing dementia care, a beautiful gift of donations have been delivered to the home.
Tower Bridge received a large donation from various communities, such as, local schools, colleges, and churches. The donations were intended to be Christmas presents for the Residents to enjoy, such as hampers, sent by St Michaels College, St Saviours and St Olaves sent in shoe boxes wrapped up that had been made up by the Children, and every Resident received one of these boxes.
Local churches also made donations for the Residents to enjoy, and a family member had organised for her band to attend the homes garden to perform in. The Residents watched from the conservatory and was quite impressed in their performance. Many of the Residents also joined in with the singing, and the school children who had helped with dropping off the donations sang along too.
Many of the Residents were quite emotional at the gesture form all the different communities, one Resident said, “The kindness these communities have shown us in such dreaded times is beautiful” other Residents also piled on the praise for the performance in the garden, “The live music created a fantastic atmosphere in the home, they were quite good”.
Rita, the Home Manager said, “It was such a lovely moment to see the Residents faces. It was a joint effort from myself, the Area director and our Deputy Manager to make this really special”.
