Peninsula recently held a blessing service honouring our elders, past and present and also to bless our staff and the facility. The service was held by our pastoral carer Julie and communion kindly given by the Rev Ron Nowlan, (retired). The idea behind this special service was specifically to honour our elderly, we want our residents at Beaumont Care to have no doubt that they are worthy of respect, that they deserve to be put on a pedestal and treated the very best, in every way possible. We also went outside and conducted a prayer ring, with residents, staff and management holding hands and again honouring our elders which was lovely. We finished off with a beautiful celebration cake made by our chef for the occasion.
Both myself and Ron were approached by residents afterwards, coming forward to tell us how much they appreciated the service and that they thought it was very appropriate.
Respect for our elders is paramount at Beaumont Care.
