Barchester’s Cumberland Grange care home, in Exeter got into the Christmas spirit by joining a virtual afternoon of festivities along with the staff and residents at over seventy Barchester care homes across the south of England, Jersey and the Isle of Wight.
Cumberland Grange’s staff and residents worked as one big team to try and win Barchester’s Big Christmas Quiz of the year. The afternoon provided much entertainment and laughter amongst the home and when they weren’t quizzing, residents enjoyed a feast of festive foods and mulled wine prepared by the home’s chef, Simon.
The management team said: “We have all had a challenging year due to COVID so we wanted to ensure the Christmas celebrations for our residents and staff were an extra special treat. We have had several events within our home and today’s event was Barchester wide. ‘Meeting up’ with the other homes virtually and joining in with a quiz has been such fun. Everyone really enjoyed the afternoon.”
Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.
We’re making our homes as safe as possible and will ensure that all new residents and staff are vaccinated before moving in or working in our homes. Please do give us a call on 01392 357 270 if you are looking for care or need any further help.
