It’s been an exceptionally busy few weeks recently for the residents and staff of Drummaul House Private Nursing Home in Randalstown.
Resident Suzie Houston was 100 years young and all her family and friends came to celebrate with her. Eamon Mcquade provided entertainment and Councillor Paul Michael, the Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey paid her a special visit.
To make the day even more special representatives from the local Presbyterian church called to bring Suzie gifts and help her blow out her candles which she managed with ease. Here’s to many more Suzie !
We had a visit from St Benedict’s secondary school who came along and played traditional Irish music for our residents including all well-known favourites which got our resident’s toes tapping and singing along. Lucy loves to come in and dance for our residents and we are more than happy to have her.
We also need to say Thank You to the Grange Baptist church choir for coming along and singing our resident’s favourite hymns and for playing the piano – it was a lovely trip down memory lane.
Now who does not love a sausage dog? Well here’s resident Anna Irons with a sausage dog similar to the one she used to have at home. Anna loved this picture so much she asked for her own copy for her room and we were happy to oblige – our residents love when pets visit the home.
Finally as Easter approaches residents and staff made Easter egg nests today and as you can see it looks like everyone enjoyed themselves.
Time for a sit down me thinks at Drummaul but watch this space for more adventures !
