Residents and staff at Stockton-on-Tees care home, MHA Reuben Manor, enjoyed a fun-filled day on Friday 14 June as they celebrated the home’s 10th anniversary since opening its doors back in 2009.
The morning kicked off with residents taking part in indoor games and enjoying a performance from belly dancers, before a lunchtime buffet was served with celebratory drinks.
In the afternoon, residents were then treated to performances by an Elvis tribute act and a local singer, who performed a selection of vintage songs. The Reuben Manor choir, made up of residents, also debuted.
Two residents, May Wright and Brenda Higman, who have been living at the home since its opening day, were later presented with bouquets of flowers by home manager, Julie Peyton.
She says: “We all had such a lovely time celebrating with our residents! It was brilliant to see everyone enjoying themselves and taking part in the activities. We wanted to celebrate our 10th birthday in style and I think we can certainly say we’ve done that.
“We’re proud to continue offering our residents the very best residential and dementia care. The team here is so dedicated and hard-working, always going above and beyond to bring quality care to our residents’ lives.”
