advent calendar for residents care home news

Galahill House residents star in their own advent calendar

Galahill House care home in the Scottish borders has created a bespoke advent calendar featuring its residents.

Every resident has been assigned to a date on the advent calendar, with their day supported by personalised gifts and activities, including their favourite foods and messages from loved ones.

Galahill House is operated by Mansfield Care, and activities coordinator Tracy McGeown said the calendar celebrates many emotional moments in 2020.

“One of our residents celebrated her 90th birthday on her advent day. We got her a cake with a photo on it saying ’90 years young today’, some gifts and arranged a WhatsApp call with her 18-month-old great grandson. It was a really lovely and special day.”

Residents have virtually travelled around the world. One resident spent her day on WhatsApp chatting to a school friend 2,000 miles away in Spain. Another had a Zoom call with their grandson in Hong Kong.

Mansfield Care specialises in small, friendly residential care homes in Edinburgh, Borders and west of Scotland.
