Easter Egg Hunt
A yearly favourite for the young or old, our residents seem to have a natural ability to hunt down chocolate! Following clues and assisted by their furry little helpers – our carers dressed up in Easter bunny outfits – residents will be given fun clues to find their chocolate prizes! A small party with cupcakes and other sweet treats will be enjoyed in the Bistro alongside tea, coffee and extravagant Easter hats!

Residents will be focussing on and planning elements of the spring and summer activities at the home. This month we are focussing on planning new outings and working on winning the Garden Challenge.
