STAFFORD, England, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 21st 2019, Easter Sunday was celebrated in style at Butterhill Care Home, located in Staffordshire, with an array of egg-cellent activities! Families and friends were invited to take part in a Mad Hatter Tea Party that saw the residents, staff and guests enjoy a rather exciting afternoon. Butterhill was transformed into its own quirky wonderland for Easter, complete with Alice in Wonderland cut-outs, Easter themed games, arts and crafts and of course, plenty of chocolate.
"It's always extra special when we plan activities like this. You can feel the positive energy and the residents especially enjoy trying something new and spending time with their families. It's really amazing to be a part of", said one member of staff.
The day was filled with frivolity and laughter when residents were let loose to create their own crazy Easter bonnets fit for a mad tea party. The crazier they were, the better! Brimming with feathers, tinsel, flowers, fluffy chicks and more, the wild and wonderful bonnets certainly turned heads and brightened the room.
Breaks for finger sandwiches and Easter cakes were well deserved and enjoyed with a cup of tea during cherished visits from the resident's family and friends. But the fun wasn't over just yet; the classic fairground game of 'hook-a-duck' was up next and everyone's competitive side was unleashed. Later in the day more arts and crafts were created, including Easter greeting cards, that were then proudly displayed upon the wall.
Even the staff got into the spirit of the day with floppy bunny ears, face paints and matching costumes and to top off an already 'hopping' good day, a raffle was held that saw hampers full of treats and cuddly toys handed out to the lucky winners which in turn raised an amazing £215.
The raffle money will be well spent on a potting shed placed in the grounds of Butterhill for residents to spend much needed time outside. The introduction of the shed will see the residents out in the fresh air, planting and tending to their own home-grown tomatoes.
What was once a deteriorating care home, Butterhill was acquired and overhauled by RB Care Homes, into the fantastically run home it is today. Rated Good by the CQC, RB Care Homes are proud to see that Butterhill has blossomed into such a well-respected and sought-after home.
