Burns’ Night was celebrated a few days late and during the afternoon by Birtley House Residents, but it didn’t seem to matter as long as there was Haggis and Whisky! True to tradition, the haggis was “piped in” after the Selkirk Grace had been said by Angela Weir (our true Scotswoman), and then the “Address to a Haggis” was read, after which haggis on an oatcake together with a wee dram of whisky was offered. Appropriate music was played as the entertainment and Bob Sabel stood to give his toast to the lassies, and Angela Weir replied with a toast to the laddies. The celebrations ended with everyone singing Auld Lang Syne and everyone said how much they had enjoyed themselves. Afternoon tea with shortbread followed.
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
