Care Home Residents’ Mother’s Day Celebration Is Tea-Riffic

Keen to brighten up a dark time, staff of Connors House Residential Care Home in Canterbury, hosted a special Mother’s Day afternoon tea celebration for residents.

A slightly different Mother’s Day was on the cards for residents of the Craddock Road residential care home this year, with no visitors due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Fortunately, staff were keen to ensure it was business as normal at Connors House, as they served up a delicious afternoon tea of sandwiches, cakes and endless cups of tea, for the ladies of the home.

As the sun was shining on the conservatory, the patio doors were thrown open and you’d be forgiven for thinking all was normal, as everyone relaxed and chatted about their families and being a mum.

Christine Devlin, General Manager of Connors House said: “Things are definitely different at the moment, but our wonderful team of staff are committed to ensuring that our residents carry on as normal as possible, keeping them settled and relaxed. The afternoon tea was lovely and the sun was shining, so everyone had a lovely time.”
