The first Bartlett’s Oscars is roaring success at summer party at Peverel court care

On July 30th we held our annual summer garden party at Bartlett’s Residential Care Home. We host a garden party at every one of our homes on an annual basis, and our residents, staff and families look forward to it with great gusto.

This year we held our first ever Oscars style ceremony, where our residents were praised for various attributes. We gave out awards in a number of categories, including best poet, storyteller and gardener and they we’re presented by the Owners, Directors and all care staff. It was a new celebration of our residents and their achievements and it was very well received. Each of our winners were presented with a personalised gift.

A family member of one of our residents said, “It was so touching when the awards were given out, especially when mum was given one.”

Another said, “We particularly appreciated Kavita’s awards – not only did she create the opportunities for the residents to produce them, but she also did a lovely display and gave wonderful prizes. We were all delighted with the personalised mug — such a lovely idea, which perfectly represents the essence of the activities programme.”

We were glad to see appreciation for our activities programme, as we spend a significant amount of time making sure that there is plenty for our residents to do. All three of our care homes have a number of daily activities arranged for residents to get involved in, as well as various opportunities to take trips outside of our grounds. Being in care doesn’t mean sitting in a chair all day watching television. Not when you live with us.

Our daily arranged activities give us the opportunity to see our resident’s talents, and we were thrilled to be able to honour the skills they have developed throughout their lives during our Oscars style ceremony at Bartlett’s. As well as amusing other residents, these skills give our care workers so much joy on a day-to-day basis.

Our residents love our garden parties and we know that their families do too, but we were still touched by the number of thank you cards we received after the event.
One said, “As we sat as a family on the lawn, we said what a lovely place Bartlett’s is, kind, happy and caring. It means so much to us that Mum is so happy at Bartlett’s, and is still able to express her creativity with all your encouragement.”
Feedback like this makes us incredibly happy. We work hard to make sure that those we care for are enjoying living with us, so it’s wonderful to hear that our families appreciate our efforts.

The fact that people had enough fun at our garden party to take the time to send us cards and emails is testimony to the hard work our staff put in to organising the event and making sure it ran smoothly. We’d like to thank them all whole-heartedly for their dedication to the day. Special thanks must go to our Activities Co-ordinator Kavita Salhotra and her daughters, who volunteered their time to make the garden party the special occasion it was. It was deemed a roaring success by residents, families and staff alike and, since we’re never content to sit back and assume we have cracked it, next year’s will be even better!
