Christmas 2023 at West Farm

The festive season at West Farm was brilliant – we had lots of fun! We organised a series of parties during December so residents could enjoy Christmas and the happiness that this time of year brings. The care home was beautifully decorated, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for the celebrations.

The staff went above and beyond to ensure that everyone felt included, with activities and entertainment that catered to all.

We sang lots of Christmas songs, enjoyed live entertainment from a local singer, and there was some dancing too. Residents loved the music, wore festive hats, and were really engaged in the festivities which provided a wonderful opportunity for residents to reminisce, enjoy the present, and celebrate the season together, reinforcing our commitment to creating a community of care and companionship.

Zara Karimi, our manager at West Farm, said: “The holidays are a special time for our residents, and we strive to make each moment count. It’s all about the smiles, the warmth, and the togetherness. Seeing the joy on their faces is what it’s all about.”
