Simonsfield gets ready for a vintage Christmas

Staff and residents at Simonsfield Residential Care Home in Liverpool have been busy putting up vintage Christmas decorations.

Print-outs of festive cards from Victorian times are now on display in the foyer and residents spent a craft session painting beautiful, heart-shaped baubles for the home’s Christmas tree.

Our activities co-ordinator, Dawn, explained: “Our themed colours are red, white and gold and our communal areas are looking fantastic. It’s been a real team effort.”

John Smith, a favourite visiting singer, helped to get residents into the festive spirit, performing songs by Doris Day, Roy Orbison and Bobby Darin.

Dawn said: “They love to welcome John to the home. He gives everyone a tambourine and encourages them to sing along!”.
