Doncaster care home throws cocktail party for their residents to bring them joy after a hard 18 months
Residents and staff at a Doncaster care home got dressed up for an exciting cocktail afternoon which lifted everyone’s spirits.
The Rowena House care home in Conisbrough had a jolly old time on June 9 when they threw a cocktail afternoon party for their residents.
Stacey Dean, Home Manager, said: “We wanted to lift spirits after a hard year.
"We had a Covid-19 outbreak back in February which meant that we had to close for a few months.”
The cocktail afternoon did the trick as Stacey said that both residents and staff had a great time.
"It was a really good afternoon – the sun was out and we had a band playing,” she continued.
"There was dancing and laughter.
"It felt like we finally got a bit of normality back.
"I want to give a huge shout out to all the staff here at Rowena House for their incredible work during the pandemic.”
