Bear in a Chair at Latham Lodge

Over the Christmas period, Latham Lodge had a very special visitor; it wasn’t “Elf on the Shelf”. We did in fact have “Bear in a Chair”.

He appeared in different locations each day and managed to get up to lots of mischief. Things such as sitting in the Hospitality Room eating biscuits and drinking pop and sitting underneath the Christmas tree opening presents.

He was even found in a carer’s uniform looking after one of our residents. As all the residents and team behaved themselves during his visit, everyone received a present from Santa. He has now returned to whence he came.

Will we see him again next year? We will have to wait and see…

Latham Lodge care home in Purbrook, Portsmouth has been sensitively converted to provide the highest standards of nursing care for up to 37 elderly people in an environment that retains a real sense of home.
