“Mad Hatter” Tea Party
We hosted a “Mad Hatter” tea party for the residents to enjoy. The staff also participated by dressing up and wearing fancy hats and shirts . We had donations of beautiful cakes and slices from families and staff and Paul, our Chef, made some delicious cupcakes. We rearranged the dining room and had one long table with beautiful table topper’s and flower arrangements all the way down the middle of the table. It looked amazing. The residents and their families sipped on nice cups of cappuccino’s and shared a lovely morning tea and lunch. We had a great response from this event and will be adding this event to the Activity Program, having a different tea party theme each month.
We purchased a Karaoke machine and have held many karaoke singing sessions over the past month. The residents loved singing into the microphone, even those residents who we needed to previously give lots of encouragement and who we had a very difficult time trying to get to sing loudly, if at all. The karaoke machine has proven to be such a success and loved by the residents that we have added Karaoke into our regular Activity Program. We also held a karaoke party where we had residents and staff singing and putting on a fabulous show.
