Triple birthday celebrations at Simonsfield

Colleagues at Simonsfield Care Home in Liverpool threw a big party for three residents who had birthdays within a couple of days of each other.

We set a long table down the middle of the room to mark the occasion, serving up all sorts of goodies to eat – to the sounds of hit music from the 1950s.

Our activities co-ordinator, Dawn, baked and iced three cakes with each resident’s name on. She said: “We had one person turning 90, one reaching 82 and one at 77.

“It was a very special day and relatives were able to get involved by saying hello through our windows, and singing happy birthday from the garden.”

Dawn has also been busy trimming and polishing residents’ nails, leading exercise classes with pom poms and telling ghost stories and old wives’ tales from Liverpool’s fascinating history.
