Last weekend saw the nation come together to watch and celebrate the Coronation of Charles III and his wife Camilla, as King and Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms.
Thousands joined together to commemorate the momentous occasion, as did residents and staff across Avante Care & Supports care homes.
Coronation street parties, a BBQ and tea dances were just a few of the events planned across the care homes over the bank holiday weekend; ensuring residents were supported to be part of the historical event and enjoy the celebrations!
The Coronation was streamed through large cinema screens at some of the homes and in all lounges, guaranteeing everyone who wanted to watch the significant Royal event, could do so.
Alongside the vast schedule of events planned at the homes, care staff supported residents to visit local street and garden parties they had been invited to, supporting residents to engage and interact with others outside of the care home setting.
For example, Pilgrims View care home residents were invited to the Holmesdale school Coronation afternoon tea. Residents and staff were treated to food, music and a quiz together with a performance from staff and children at the school. Whilst, Bridge Haven care home residents and staff were invited to a picnic in the park in Bridge.
