Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day at Wellington Park

Getting to Know You Morning Tea

Wellington Park Nursing Home residents were given a formal invitation to attend a special morning tea. The new residents to the facility were seated at the front and others get to find out about their life stories growing up. Everyone enjoyed the first-morning event and mentioned they are looking forward to the next event in March.

Alick, John, and Julie Concert

Volunteer singers came dressed for the country morning singalong and greeted us with a howdy partner. A resident from both Wentworth and Stanford had the pleasure of hearing them sing and play their musical instruments.

Chinese New Year Celebration in Wellington Park Nursing Home

Both buildings enjoyed tea samples and different Chinese nibble foods as they celebrated the Chinese New Year – the year of the Ox. The wasabi peas were not a bit hit for one of our residents.

Wellington Park Nursing Home residents were given a lucky coin, coin bag as a gift, and a fortune cookie and they read aloud the messages. This year’s celebration was wonderful with the rooms decorated in Chinese attire and even the staff dressed to the occasion.

Valentine’s Day Morning High Tea and Concerts

We celebrated this the day after with a special morning high tea and a concert in each building.

Wentworth had the pleasure of listening to Gillian the harpist and Stanford got to hear the variety of sounds of the clarinet and saxophone from Sterle. Staff and residents donned on pink or red attire for this special morning.

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Making

Shake, rattle, and roll – well, maybe only the shake and rattle part of the song.

The residents in both Wentworth and Stanford celebrated Shrove Tuesday making the shaker maker pancakes. Each resident took turns shaking the mixture ready to be placed into the pan.

The smell of pancakes cooking brought in extra residents and staff to enjoy the aroma. The golden syrup was the massive hit with the desired topping to be added on the pancakes.

Flower Arrangement

Sadly, a resident passed away in Diamond and the family wanted to donate the beautiful flowers back to the residents. They then arranged the flowers in beautiful bouquets for all to see.

Susan enjoyed taking the residents out into the patio area to make these special flowers. One of the residents, who prior to moving to our facility was a personal photographer, took photographs. I certainly think these pictures are just absolutely amazing.
