Haydale Care Home Delights Residents and Staff with ‘Treat Tuesday’ Ice Cream Surprise

22 May 2024

The Wellbeing team at Haydale Care Home surprised residents and staff with a special ‘Treat Tuesday’ event, featuring a visit from the local ice-cream van.

Residents had the delightful option to choose between an ice cream cone or a tub, complete with a variety of sauces. Many expressed their joy, noting that the icy treats were a perfect surprise on such a warm day.

Adding to the fun, residents played with beach balls and wore both regular and novelty sunglasses while enjoying their ice creams. The event provided a refreshing and playful atmosphere that brought smiles to many faces.

The gesture was also a token of appreciation for the hardworking staff who have been diligently working through the recent heatwave. They, too, enjoyed the ice cream, expressing that it was a thoughtful gesture that lifted their spirits.

In Glasgow, an ice cream cone is affectionately known as ‘a pokey hat,’ and the residents took this opportunity to reminisce about their childhood memories of visiting the ice cream van. The nostalgic treat allowed many to fondly recall their younger days, adding an extra layer of joy to the event.

Overall, ‘Treat Tuesday’ at Haydale Care Home was a resounding success, bringing cool relief, happy memories, and heartfelt appreciation to everyone involved.
