Love is in the air at The Beeches

The Beeches Residential Home has organised a special Valentine’s Day treat for residents and their friends and loved ones, as a special treat on the romantic day.

Care staff from the home, based in Ixworth, transformed the lounge and dining room with hearts and balloons and organised a romantic, afternoon tea.

According to a survey carried out by carehome.co.uk, a third of those working in the sector say they have actively helped residents interested in each other to spend time together.

The Valentine’s Day survey, which questioned 2,077 care home owners, managers and staff, also found around one in 10 say their residents go on dates.

Bev Shave, Deputy Manager of The Beeches Care Home, commented: “TraditionallyValentines is associated with romance and love, but our care team along with our residents wanted to celebrate love in its broader sense of the meaning, expanding to those of us who have built up relationships within the care home, whether that’s partners, friends, family members and even our own care team.

“Each year the day brings mixed emotions for some of our residents who have sadly lost their partners, so it’s nice to still celebrate the day with people who care about them and people who they care about.”
