The royal treatment – Local care homes celebrate the Platinum Jubilee in style

Home news

Residents at two local care homes have been enjoying Platinum Jubilee celebrations fit for a queen. 

Care UK’s Foxbridge House, in Orpington, and Weald Heights, in Sevenoaks, celebrated the Queen’s official 70-year milestone by hosting a royal themed garden party with family and friends.

 

Keen to celebrate in quintessentially British style, team members at Foxbridge House and Weald Heights decorated the home’s gardens with Union Jack flags, bunting and balloons – and everyone enjoyed sandwiches, cakes and scones thoughtfully prepared by the home’s talented head chefs.

Stella Barnes, Home Manager at Foxbridge House, said: “We had a wonderful time celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee here at Foxbridge House. 

“For older people, and those living with dementia, reminiscing about key milestones, such as previous jubilee celebrations, can help bring back happy memories, as well as prompting conversation and connection with those around them. These positive feelings gained from revisiting fond memories can help decrease stress, reduce agitation, and improve mood.” 

Maria Covington, Home Manager at Weald Heights, added: “The Platinum Jubilee offers the perfect opportunity to get together with loved ones and celebrate the last 70 years of both the Queen, and the wonderful residents, incredible reigns. Many residents have fond memories of celebrating the silver, golden and diamond jubilees with their families and communities, and we were keen to ensure the Platinum Jubilee was no exception!

 

“It was amazing to have the full Weald Heights family back together again after so long. Judging by the smiles on everyone’s faces, it was a huge success, and we are already planning our next get together!”
