National Day for Older People
Residents and staff
at the Coppins Residential home enjoyed various activities throughout the
day on Monday to celebrate the first ever National Day for Older People.
Manager Julie Cross said, “It was a brilliant idea to have a day of
celebration for elderly people and an excellent way of showing them how
valued they are. The resident at the Coppins nursing home really enjoyed
themselves and the staff worked really hard to make it a special day for
them”. The residents finished of the day with a specially prepared buffet
that they thoroughly enjoyed and with a toast to themselves.
