There will be Easter egg-stravaganzas at Sanctuary Care homes across the country with a week of spring-themed activities.
At Castlecroft Residential Care Home in Birmingham, local school children have been helping the residents to craft Easter bonnets.
When residents at Breme Care Home in Bromsgrove wake up on Sunday they will exchange hand crafted cards, which they have been lovingly making for one another during activities sessions.
The residents have also been decorating their Easter bonnets with butterflies, colourful ribbons and daffodils, as well as painting faces on hard boiled eggs.
Activities leader Helen Barron said: “Our craft sessions have been a wonderful reminiscence activity – with our residents sharing stories about how they celebrated Easter when they were growing up.”
Meanwhile at St Mary’s Haven Residential Care Home in Penzance and Ravenhurst Residential Care Home in Stourport-on-Severn, residents will be waiting with baited breath for eggs in special incubators to hatch into fluffy chicks.
There will be fun for all the generations at Regent Residential Care Home in Worcester with an Easter egg hunt for the grandchildren of the residents, as well as a fancy dress completion and an abundance of hot cross buns.
Residents at other homes, including Ashgreen House Residential and Nursing Home in Streatham Vale, Iffley Residential and Nursing Home in Oxford and Highcroft Hall Residential Care Home in Wolverhampton have also been crafting bonnets ready to display at Easter parades in their homes.
