Cream teas and 104th birthdays at Magna

On Saturday 2nd July residents and visitors at Magna Care Centre enjoyed a cream tea afternoon which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was also an opportunity to celebrate one residents’ birthday, Margaret, who turned 104.

The day was a huge success, enjoyed by everyone who attended. The Pastimers, a delightful local duo, entertained everyone with their guitars, banjos, mandolins and harmonicas. They played popular songs, which residents sang along to.

Non-residents were asked to make a small donation for their cream tea and the home also held a raffle. The home raised an amazing £226.50, which will be shared between activities in the home and The Pastimers chosen charity, Marie Curie.

“This was a wonderful day, thoroughly enjoyed by all who got involved” said Heidi Williams, Home Manager; “Our residents love having people visit the home and The Pastimers are particular favourites. It was also wonderful to celebrate Margaret’s birthday in style and she really enjoyed herself.”

The home is fortunate enough to celebrate four residents’ 100th or over 100th birthdays this year. Each birthday is celebrated by the home, should the resident wish it to be. Alongside the cream team afternoon, Margaret chose to celebrate her birthday with her (considerable) family the following day. She also managed to gain herself a spot in the local newspaper, The Bournemouth Echo!

Magna Care Centre in Dorset provides residential and specialist nursing care for up to 63 elderly residents. The home enjoys spectacular views over the beautiful local countryside and an abundance of rare flora and fauna.

The best way to fully understand life at Magna Care Centre is to book a visit. A visit can provide answers to your many inevitable questions from funding the cost of care, to the moving in process. To book a visit to meet Heidi and her team please call 0808 223 5541 or click here to send an email.
