LOVE WAS IN THE AIR AT VALENTINE’S BALL

A care home in Powys held a special Valentine’s Ball for its residents, to celebrate the most romantic night of the year.

A care home in Powys held a special Valentine’s Ball for its residents, to celebrate the most romantic night of the year.

Staff at The Oaks Care Home in Newtown worked hard to create a special day for everyone in the home, including a number of married couples who live there together.

As well as a special afternoon tea with hand-decorated cookies, there was Love Bingo with prizes to be won, a couple of familiar game shows to take part in and a chance to dress up with the theme of wearing something red.

Jen Roberts, Registered Manager of The Oaks, said: “We had a lovely day for all our residents.

“We handed out roses at the door, along with glasses of cranberry fizz in champagne glasses. The ladies had their hair and nails done in the salon and we helped them make red brooches and designed lovely gift bags.

“The pandemic has bought enormous challenges for the entire care sector and there hasn’t been a lot to celebrate in lockdown but we thought a Valentine’s Day Ball would be something everyone could look forward to and get involved in. We were delighted with the response we have had from everyone in the home.”

The Oaks Care Home in Newtown, Powys, is part of the Sandstone Care Group. The Sandstone Care team are passionate about providing outstanding, resident-led care within a modern setting.
