Woodstock Care Home Paints the Day Green with St. Patrick’s Day Festivities

19 March 2024

Woodstock Care Home embraced the spirit of the Emerald Isle as staff and residents came together for a vibrant St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The day was filled with laughter, games, and treats, as everyone joined in the festivities with enthusiasm and joy.

Staff members set the tone for the day by donning their finest green attire, adding a splash of color to the home and setting the stage for a day filled with Irish charm. The festivities kicked off with a spirited game of “Pot of Gold,” where participants competed to see who could collect the most gold coins. Shirley emerged victorious, claiming a giant chocolate gold coin as her prize.

To quench their thirst, residents enjoyed a glass of Guinness or Sprite, accompanied by a selection of green treats from a special treat trolley. From mint matchmakers to green frosted cookies, every treat was a delightful nod to the Irish theme, adding a touch of sweetness to the celebration.

In a unique “Armchair Travel” session with Sparkle Airways, residents were transported to the enchanting landscapes of Ireland through captivating photos and stories. Accompanied by Irish music and MyLifeTV’s picturesque images, residents embarked on a virtual journey to the Emerald Isle, immersing themselves in the rich culture and history of Ireland.

The fun continued with Irish-themed activities, including coloring, word searches, and quizzes, providing opportunities for residents to engage their minds and learn more about Irish traditions and customs. The highlight of the day came with a lighthearted session of Snapchat fun, as residents experimented with Irish filters to capture funny photos and share giggles with friends and family.

The St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at Woodstock Care Home were a testament to the power of community and shared experiences to uplift spirits and create lasting memories for all involved.
