Our homes were a sea of green on March 17 as the St Patrick’s Day festivities took place.
Staff and residents wore their best green clothes, ‘Irish for a day’ sashes and even four-leaf clover temporary tattoos to get into the spirit of the day. Whenever there is a holiday like this, our occupational therapy staff pull out all the stops to make it extra special for our residents. Decorations, themed meals and extra activities like games, craft sessions and performances.
At Concorde Aged Care Home in South Perth, the day of celebrations kicked off with a fast-paced Irish dancing routine from local group Perth Treble Makers. Staff and residents joined in on the fun too, with many of them hitting the dance floor.
At Windsor Park Aged Care Home, located in Carlisle, in Perth’s east, the preparations for St Patrick’s Day have been happening all week, with residents making lots of decorations for the home.
As well as a lovely Irish lunch of beef and Guinness pie, staff put on a fashion show for residents and visitors, with prizes for the greenest outfit and the most creative.
Green pancakes, lots of Irish music and bad Irish jokes capped off the day.
May the luck of the Irish be with you!
