St Patrick’s Day gets teh green light at Exeter care home

Residents and staff at Cumberland Grange in Exeter celebrated all things Irish for St Patrick’s Day this week. The home was decorated with shamrocks and balloons to mark the day.

Held on March 17th, Saint Patrick's Day actually observes the death of St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, but the day has come to be a huge celebration of Irish heritage and culture.

Staff and residents at the home marked the day by making shamrock decorations, listening to some Irish music, and enjoying a Creative Therapy Session led by Pete the Poet. Head chef John prepared a fantastic Irish spread with Irish potato soup, Irish stew, grilled Irish cod lion, colcannon champ and Baileys Irish whiskey cheesecake, all washed down with traditional Guinness or a glass of champagne. 

General Manager, Michele said: “Our residents have all had a brilliant day today, everyone has enjoyed the festivities – I think we all agree St Patrick’s Day is the best of all the saints days!  We had a fantastic time listening to Irish music, getting creative, and eating lots of delicious Irish food.”

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.
