What a fantastic way to end a fantastic week! We indulged ourselves with a cream tea and were then entertained by the wonderful Kyle for the afternoon. There was singing and dancing and good fun all round. We are celebrating 25 years of Sibbertoft Manor Care Home this year and this week has been a memorable time to mark this event. Thank you to all the residents, families and staff who took part in the events this week. We couldn’t have done it without you!

We started our day with a visit from Lubenham Primary School. The children, from years 5 and 6, performed a set of songs from their upcoming summer production. We gathered outside on the patio and the choir performed on our courtyard lawn. It was magical! We would like to thank all of the children and the staff for a fabulous morning of entertainment.

This afternoon, we continued our ‘thinking day’ theme and encouraged residents to choose from a variety of beauty therapy treatments offered by visiting practitioner, Karen Humphries. Residents sat back, relaxed and enjoyed time for peaceful reflection whilst being gently pampered. Lovely!

This afternoon, we invited our favourite country music singer, Bob Oakley, to perform in our garden marquee. It was a beautiful afternoon and the music matched the setting. We kept cool with drinks, lollies and well known songs. A real summer treat. Thank you Bob!

Our music focused day started with a wonderful morning church service with Kairen. We celebrated the joy of music through words, songs and readings. A lovely way to start the day…

This afternoon, we donned our hats, braved the high temperatures and completed our wheelchair conga around the village. Some in wheelchairs and some walking and all of us baking! We had ‘Do The Conga’ playing us through the streets of Sibbertoft and rewarded ourselves with cold drinks and ice-creams when we got home. Residents and staff – you are all amazing XXX

Today was the start of our fitness focus day where residents, staff and family members all took part in a dance chair exercise session with Hannah. Everyone joined in and and the staff particularly enjoyed using the sparkly pom-poms and dancing their socks off!!!

After our opening event on Sunday for Care Home Open Week, we started the working week with reflexology treatments for staff and beauty sessions and hand massages for residents. How lovely!

What can I say? It was amazing! From the MG car club to Lutterworth Town Band to the delicious afternoon tea to the scrumptious BBQ to the beautiful weather. We couldn’t have asked for more. We hope that everyone who attended had a lovely day and have made some memories to treasure.
