Lisburne Court have had a fantastic year full of Life in Colour moments. We want to extend a huge thank you and well done to Manager Hayley, ALF Laura and to everyone at Lisburne Court for the fantastic care they have provided their residents this year. Let’s take a look back at some of the highlights of 2022!
In February, residents across our homes embraced the season of love with some fantastic Valentine’s Day celebrations. Lisburne Court enjoyed a live performance from the violinist, Arjay, who came into the home to play for the residents. After some live music, everyone sat down to enjoy a delicious roast beef dinner and a glass of rosé.
For St Patrick’s Day, in March, residents and staff embraced all things Irish and got dressed up to watch a live performance from Joe, the singer, who performed some classic Irish songs. After the performance, they all enjoyed an Irish stew followed by a slice (or two) of their St Patrick’s-themed cakes – delicious!
Lisburne Court also said a big happy birthday to resident Doreen in March as she celebrated her 84th birthday! To mark the occasion, everyone enjoyed a lovely home-cooked dinner from the Lisburne Court team. Here’s a great shot of the birthday girl alongside resident Peter.
In April, staff and residents had a visit from Frank, a magician, who came into the home to give a magic show to the residents. They all had a brilliant time watching the show, and a few residents even got involved in some of his tricks!
Lisburne Court raised £220 for Stockport Foodbank by creating and selling beautiful hanging baskets in May. Residents Wendy, Jean and Alan, along with Activity & Lifestyle Facilitator Laura, visited to hand over the donation to Lindsey from Stockport foodbank. Everyone at Borough Care was so proud of Lisburne Court’s residents and staff for this lovely gesture, at a time when a lot of people in the local area are struggling.
In June we celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee and Lisburne Court had a brilliant day celebrating Her Majesty. The team had a specially made cake, fit for a Queen, delivered to the home for everyone to enjoy. It looked absolutely amazing!
We celebrated lots of birthdays in July at Borough Care. The first was at Lisburne Court where staff and residents got together to mark resident Daniel’s 89th birthday. They had a singer and guitarist in and the residents were given cupcakes and drinks as they sang happy birthday to Daniel.
Lisburne Court residents had a few very exciting visitors to the home in July. The Macclesfield FC team stopped by to play a few games with the residents before hosting a quiz night for them. Tracy from Boogie Beat came to visit Lisburne Court for a brilliant music and movement class with some children from her class. All the residents loved spending time with the children and had a wonderful time joining in with songs and stories.
October saw Borough Care celebrate our Life in Colour Employee Awards. We all got together at the Alma Lodge Hotel in Stockport for a huge awards ceremony in celebration of the incredible work that our team have all done over the last year. Lisburne Court’s Care Home Manager Hayley was awarded the Inspirer and Mentoring Champion. ALF Laura Nelson received an Outstanding Colourful Care Award for her incredible dedication and commitment to supporting Lisburne Court’s residents to live Life in Colour, and Amie Keats, Senior Care Assistant at Lisburne Court won the PCS Champion Award for being particularly brilliant at using our Person Centred Software throughout the day and encouraging others to do the same.
Also in October, the Lisburne Court team celebrated resident Sheila’s 91st birthday. Sheila’s family came to visit and the lovely Karen provided entertainment for the afternoon. Everyone enjoyed a song, dance and a slice of cake!
In November, Malcolm came to visit Lisburne Court to play the bagpipes for staff and residents for Saint Andrew’s day. They enjoyed a Scotch broth soup, shortbread and a variety of drinks. Malcolm spoke about the different kilts and even played a few Xmas tunes. It was a really enjoyable afternoon!
Last week, Lisburne Court had a visit from Minister Lyndsey, Andy, and a few others who came to do a Christmas service for the residents. Family members also attended, and after the service, everyone had a drink and a slice of cake. It was a really lovely way to spend the evening together. The home is beautifully decorated and we wish all of the staff, residents and their families the merriest Christmas and happiest New Year!
