As the residents at Blenheim House Care Home in Melksham settled in for their usual Saturday night “Strictly Club” imagine their surprise when in full technicolour, Head Judge, Shirley Ballas appeared on their cinema screen to wish them a very merry Christmas!
Clearly making a wonderful impression on Strictly Come Dancing’s Head judge, not only did Ms Ballas send everyone lots of “Christmas Huggies” but she talked of their weekly “Strictly Club” asking why she hadn’t invited to be on their judging panel!!
Avid fans of Strictly Come Dancing, the team at the Wiltshire care home were determined to try and do something extra special for their residents and particularly so this year.
Chris Guest, Events & Community Liaison lead at Blenheim House commented at how amazing this was. “I’m still pinching myself that we actually made this happen and owe a huge thank you to the completely wonderful Shirley Ballas. The look on our residents faces and the sparkle when sharing the news with their families was just magical.
Ahead of this weekend’s Strictly Come Dancing final, the excitement has been building at the luxury care home in Wiltshire, residents are swotting up on their dancing knowledge and polishing their score cards whilst their Activities team prepare a special sparkling night of fun!!
Through their “Just for Me” initiative Majesticare luxury care homes are dedicated to creating these unique experiences for both their residents and teams. Lily Patrick, Heart & Creativity Co-ordinator commented: “Our “Just for Me” initiative is one we are most proud of and it’s only through learning about each other, life histories past and dreams unfilled that we can create such moments of magic.”
