Christmas at St. Bernards
Christmas is a time for hope and brings families and communities together. This past year has been one like no other and bought challenges that were unforeseen. With this being said, the year has also highlighted that love and kindness will always prevail over any darkness.
St. Bernards Residential Care would like to thank all those who have thought of us throughout the year and wish you all a wonderful, safe and Happy Christmas!
We believe we can get through anything as a family, and look towards the future with hope and gratitude.
Deck the Halls…
The halls and rooms are full of Christmas! Trees, sparkling baubles, lights and the gentle smell of fresh pine and cinnamon runs throughout the home. St. Bernards at Christmas has always been a magical time for all. The home is where the heart is, and despite the year we have had – Christmas is certainly not cancelled!
Wilson Vale and St. Bernards
As always we have been working with the wonderful team at Wilson Vale to ensure the absolute best when it comes to festive food and treats for our residents. We particularly enjoyed our ‘German Market’ inspired day, where residents were able to enjoy the very best of a Christmas market in the safety of the home.
In ‘normal times’ the home would be full of guests, entertainers and family. We have got creative this year and made sure we are still connected with all those who make Christmas so special for our residents.
We have had the enjoyment of watching the National Welsh Opera, The Alzheimer’s Society ‘Virtual Christmas Carols’, pantomimes, children’s plays, Church services and so much more!
The residents have been able to view in the comfort of the numerous designated lounges we have, in safe and comfortable settings.
Crafts and ‘Engage’ at St. Bernards
Encouraging our residents to get involved with crafts is not only great for mental stimulation and creativity, but also a fantastic opportunity for socialising and being ‘Engaged’ with the present moment and whom they are sharing that time with. The idea of ‘Engage’ in the home is about spending 1-2-1 time with residents through meaningful activities.
