Guysfield and Royal Wedding Fever

On the 29th of May, Guysfield care home hosted a Royal Wedding tea party for our residents, team and guests.

Prior to the event, residents helped the Activity team with making all the decorations which were used to make our home look and feel like a venue fit for a Royal Wedding party and get everyone in the spirit.

We also organsied reminiscence boxes from our local Letchworth library. The boxes contained royal memorabilia and wedding accessories which were used by visitors and our team to interact with residents and helps families and carers to remember the past and share experiences. The rummage boxes contact objects and pictures from the past and are a great way to bring back memories and spark conversation.

We even had a wedding dress displayed on a stand and one of our residents was mesmerised when she saw the dress and requested to be sat nearby so she could gaze and touch.

Our residents and visitors enjoyed dancing, music, cake cutting ceremony and a glass of prosecco to cheer the couple on their special day.

We also enjoyed an afternoon Wedding Tea Party with sandwiches, cakes and much more delicious snacks.

It was lovely to see our visitors celebrating with us, dancing and everyone sharing their memories of their wedding day or other family events. The children especially were a delight engaging with our residents. They helped serving the delicious food on offer as well as playing balloon games and chatting.

We received such positive feedback from our relatives and visitors who attended and we are delighted the event was such a success.

It was great to see family involvement and we looking forward to their participation in organised events in the future.
