February is here and love is in the air, and we will be celebrating all that on Valentine’s Day. As always we have a busy month with lots going on at our care home. Remember friends and family are always welcome to take part in our activities!
Our care home activity programme for December is now available at reception, or you can download the programme as a pdf. (opens in a new window). Highlights include our Christmas celebrations and decorating the Christmas tree. This could be our favourite time of the year… Watch out for Christmas carols and Christmas craft fun!
We enjoyed some very special visitors to our residential care home on Friday. Yes, your eyes do not deceive, we had ponies come to visit our nursing home. It was lovely to see residents’ (and staff!) faces light up when these beauties rode into town. We thought we’d share a few pictures with you, and hope these photos convey the joy and fun we had with these wonderful animals.
Strange goings-on have been witnesses at a local Dundee nursing home, where witnesses have been seeing the most unusual and dramatic sights, and hearing other-worldly sounds.
A wail of a time
Bridge View House’s original manse rises imposingly over the historic Magdalen Green and over the slivery Tay across the Tay Bridge in the heart of William McGonagall’s stomping grounds and just round the corner from Scotland’s greatest poet’s home.
…and a chilling tale
Staff and residents at the home reported strange goings on just a few days ago, when weird ghouls, ghosts and vampires walked the corridors of the old Georgian house, and the sound of singing, laughter and joy echoed through the home, as the party went on into the wee hours of the night!
Manager Heather Allison said; “We had a real scream at our annual Halloween Party when staff and residents joined in to create an atmospheric and fun party, when we let out our inner demons, and party animals.”
Some say they heard the voice of the great poet himself reciting his greatest works…
Our November care home activity planner is now available.
Friends and family are welcome to join us as we celebrate life at our nursing home in Dundee. There is something on every morning, and every afternoon at Bridge View; from arts and crafts to sing-alongs, and from knitting to bingo! Come join in the fun. Watch out for our Christmas Fayre coming on Saturday 24th November.
