London Home holds Remembrance Day Service With Family Members of Former Residents’ Part of Service

A London care home held a Remembrance Day service and invited family members of residents who had passed away in the last year to join for a moment of reflection.

MHA Lawnfield House, in Willesden hosted the service which was led by chaplain Rosamond Stokes.

The home provides dementia care for up to 41 residents and prepared handmade poppies and wreaths which were used for the service.

As part of the service family members of residents who had passed away were given forget me not seeds to plant in memory of their loved ones.

Carmel Collins, activity coordinator said: “The Remembrance Day service was very peaceful, and it was something that we all really enjoyed at the home,

“We followed the service on TV and joined in with the two-minute silence which was observed by all the residents.

“The atmosphere was very emotional, and you could see the residents were very relaxed and enjoying a moment of reflection.

“A lot of our residents remember the war and the significance of Remembrance Day, and you could sense that in the way they were on the day.

“It was very quiet, and I do think a lot of them were going through that period of their lives in their thoughts.

“Residents and family members lit a candle during the service, and it was a very moving experience.

“It was a beautiful experience and one that we all enjoyed.

“The significance and importance of Remembrance Day is something we hold in high regard at the home and will continue to do so.”
