Bedford Care Home Transforms into a Parisian Wonderland for February Theme

4 March 2024

Residents and staff at Bedford Care Home embarked on a delightful journey to the City of Love as they celebrated the month of February with a Parisian-themed extravaganza. Donning stripes, berets, sunglasses, and neckerchiefs, they immersed themselves in the vibrant culture of France.

The highlight of the celebration was a playful game of “leaping frogs into the frying pan,” where residents and staff engaged in friendly competition to see who could land the most frogs into the designated pans. Laughter echoed through the halls as participants eagerly attempted to perfect their frog-leaping skills, with some residents even trying to get the amphibious guests to jump off tables.

Decorations adorned the care home, featuring French sayings and positive affirmations lovingly handmade by residents and staff. Heart balloons and streamers added to the festive ambiance, creating a whimsical Parisian atmosphere.

Adding a sweet touch to the festivities, all residents were treated to caramel chocolates adorned with love quotes, carefully crafted and laminated for them to cherish. The chocolates served as a token of affection, spreading warmth and joy throughout the community.


The celebration wasn’t just about fun and games; it also provided an opportunity for residents to reflect on the meaning of love. Engaging love quizzes prompted heartfelt discussions about admiration and affection, allowing everyone to share their perspectives on this universal theme.

Reflecting on the memorable event, staff members expressed their delight at witnessing the residents’ enjoyment and engagement throughout the month-long celebration. The Parisian-themed festivities not only brought joy and laughter but also fostered a sense of camaraderie and community spirit among all who participated.

As February drew to a close, the echoes of laughter and the warmth of cherished memories lingered, leaving a lasting impression on the hearts of everyone at Bedford Care Home.
