Christmas time at the Gables is the most special time of year, we cosy up together in the living room, play lots of games and enjoy so much delicious food.
It's been a difficult time of year for the past few years now where our residents haven't been able to spend time with their families as much as they would like. This has meant that our team has stepped up majorly to ensure our residents have the most cheerful Christmas they possibly can within Covid-19 restrictions. Our dedicated team work so hard to ensure the happiness and safety of the residents, we are truly grateful for each and every member of staff and all their hard work.
We don't just celebrate Christmas on Christmas Day, we celebrate all month long. We shower our residents with mince pies and alcohol whenever they would like it - within reason of course! All of our decorations are up around the home from the beginning of December and we play lots of Christmas music to get everyone in a festive mood. Each day we provide an activity or entertainment session for the residents to enjoy, this could be a Christmas quiz, some floor games such as snakes & ladders or ring toss, arts and crafts, flower arranging, gingerbread men baking and decorating and of course Bingo with lots of festive prizes to be won.
We also have other events for separate days such as our Christmas sale which is on all throughout December (or until everything sells!), musical entertainment from our well loved singers Dave Dean and Frankie Johns. We have a dedicated evening to our Christmas light switch on for the garden lights with singing, buffet food and wine! Towards Christmas Day we hold our Christmas party which involves more festive music, delicious hot food of the residents' choice, chocolates, mulled wine, mince pies and so much more!
