Valentine’s Day at Moorlands

Residents at Moorlands Nursing home in Lightwater, Surrey enjoyed some Valentine’s Day themed fun when the singer and performer, Graham Board, came and entertained us.

Having been a huge success at our Christmas party, the decision was pretty unanimous when we decided who would be the perfect entertainer for this event and Graham didn’t let us down. He serenaded us all with a collection of love songs and a few of the old time greats and put us in the mood for some good old fashioned love & romance.

With his charming manner and dressed in a tuxedo, he brought a real sense of drama and occasion to the day and reminded many of our residents of old time performers they had seen. He definitely charmed all the ladies present, bringing out many a beaming smile and he was not short of requests to sing to them.

His performance was followed by a buffet of sweet treats, a game of ‘pass the parcel’ and a lucky dip on the tombola. We all had such a great time and our home was full of fun and laughter. In fact, you could say ‘a sense of love was in the air…’ Well we all loved it for sure.

Valentine’s Day is now such an annual event for people from all walks of life and we wanted to bring a little of that magic into our home. All of our residents really enjoyed the party; it brought back many memories and encouraged lots of reminiscing about childhood sweethearts, first loves and their spouses. It was great to hear all their stories, especially the really romantic ones and we reckon this event will now be a firm fixture on our activity schedule.

In fact, our residents now want to know when Graham will be back so it looks like he may become a regular visitor to our home.

At Moorlands care home in Lightwater, Surrey we provide residential and nursing care for up to 40 elderly residents in a bright and homely environment.
