Love is all around

14 February 2020

Valentine celebrations

Our services are bustling with pampering preparations and filled with hearts, flowers and tempting treats as celebrations get underway to mark the romance of February 14th.

Residents in our nursing homes – St Catherine's in Newcastle and Holy Cross in Sunderland – are spending time with our staff and each other reminiscing about how they met their wives and husbands.

And the treats on offer are as sweet as the stories everyone has been swapping with a beautifully presented afternoon tea fit for any romantic tryst.

A Valentine-themed quiz covering film, music and general knowledge wrapped up the afternoon, providing fun and a few surprises, too.

Meanwhile, staff at our Parkhead Resource Centre in Ashington have been helping their regulars prepare for an evening of romance with pamper sessions and manicures for all to make sure everyone is looking their best.

“We've made special cards for that special someone,” said Parkhead manager, Claire, “and, after a bit of a pamper, everyone is looking – and feeling – well groomed and ready for romance.”
