Residents enjoyed preparing for the coronation by painting their own paper crowns and helping to decorate the home with bunting.
Springvale celebrated the occasion with afternoon tea, a delicious lunch, a live showing of the coronation and entertainment from a wonderful singer.
The residents got dressed up for the day and donned a variety of British flag-themed headpieces.
Residents and relatives came together to celebrate. Relatives are always invited to take part in the celebrations that go on at Springvale as it's important to maintain these relationships and strengthen family connections by spending quality time with loved ones.
We believe it's important to celebrate national days at Springvale as it enables residents to reconnect with their cultural identity and maintain a sense of belonging and it brings residents together as a community. It creates an atmosphere of unity and shared experiences which enhances overall well-being.
Reminiscing about significant events and customs can be a source of joy and cognitive stimulation. It can facilitate conversations, storytelling, and the sharing of personal anecdotes between residents, promoting mental engagement. Celebrations such as these can evoke positive emotions and nostalgia and create opportunities for residents to experience joy, pride, and a sense of patriotism.
It also provides the opportunity for residents to engage in meaningful and purposeful activities. Whether it involves decorating the home, preparing traditional foods, or partaking in a themed quiz or game, these activities promote a sense of purpose, creativity, and involvement and give residents a chance to actively participate and contribute to the celebrations.
