Care home wishes local children a hoppy Easter

A Bury St Edmunds care home has donated some special treats to local children this Easter.

Team members and residents at Care UK’s Glastonbury Court surprised the children at Little Teapots Pre-School with cards and treats to celebrate Easter.

As part of their own egg-cellent celebrations, including an Easter egg hunt and raffle, residents at Glastonbury Court were keen to spread the festivities out into the local community too.

Head chef, Glenn Eldridge, created goody bags for each child, while residents created their own cards for their younger friends.

Melissa Cuevas, home manager at Glastonbury Court, said: ‘We love celebrating Easter at Glastonbury Court, and we are keen to find new ways to connect with the community while restrictions are in place.

‘Prior to the pandemic, the children from Little Teapots often visited us at the home, and although we are unable to see them in person at the moment, we wanted to send them a special treat to let them know we can’t wait to see them as soon as we are safely able.

‘Intergenerational relationships have many benefits for older people, from offering an increased sense of purpose, to providing an opportunity to reminisce about their younger years. Everyone loved making the cards, and we hope our friends at Little Teapots enjoy tucking into their chocolate treats!’

Glastonbury Court is a modern care home that provides full-time residential and dementia care, as well as short-term respite care.

Designed to enable its residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has its very own cinema and hair salon, and there is plenty of space both in and outdoors for relaxation and recreation.
