Mothering Sunday

Wow, what a beautiful Mother’s Day we all enjoyed at West Farm.

It’s been a really tough year for residents, their loved ones and carers but together we’ve powered through and given the residents the best experience we can all things considered.

As well as opening their amazing cards, flowers and presents from family members and their children, Alfie Dobson, one of our favourite live singers here at West Farm also provided a live Mother’s Day performance via video link!

We got him up on the big projector screen that we’ve invested in during lockdown and we were not disappointed. What a show he provided. There was such a great response from residents with lots of interaction and conversation. The room was bustling with fun!

Julie Farnfather, manager at West Farm, said: “The residents absolutely loved the show put on by Alfie. He had them all singing and dancing away and thoroughly enjoying themselves on a day of celebration. It was great to see them so happy and content and full of smiles and laughter despite the tough times they’ve faced in the last 12 months. Thank you, Alfie, for such a sterling show – we can’t wait for your next one!”
