Oakland Care Homes Pay Tribute to the Brave Soldiers
On Remembrance Sunday, Our Oakland Care Homes paid tribute to the brave men and women who sacrificed in service to their country.
At Beechwood Grove, the residents gathered to observe the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph. They paid their respects to those who served in the War.
On Remembrance Sunday, the residents of Birchwood Heights paid tribute to the brave men and women and were graced with a wonderful performance by harpist Mark Levin. Lest we forget the sacrifices made by our veterans.
Elsyng House’s very own ex-army veteran, Donald, dressed to impress before attending the remembrance day parade and service at Enfield War Memorial, where he met up with old friends. Donald joined the army when WWII started at the age of 18 back in 1939, and served for seven years as a field gunner. Donald commented, “I am proud to have served for my country”. Donald inspires us all at the fantastic age of 102, and we love hearing his stories.
Our amazing residents at Elmbrook Court came together to honour and remember those who bravely served our country on Remembrance Day. It was a heartfelt and touching gathering, filled with gratitude and respect. Everyone at the home is so proud to be part of a community that recognises and appreciates the sacrifices made by our veterans.
The residents at Hastings Court marked Remembrance Sunday in a way most traditional. Residents started the morning by watching respects paid at the Cenotaph in London and the parade of service people. At lunch, residents joined together in their communities and enjoyed good company and a hearty roast beef. Afterwards, they were graced with a service of remembrance led by Penny, who sang praises and took time to reflect and remember the fallen.
At Hyllden Heights, a team took eleven residents to St John’s Church for the church service and parade to remember the heroes of WWI. It was an excellent opportunity for the residents to pay their respects and honour those who have served our country.
Lambwood Heights had a lovely day, honouring the brave men and women who served in WW1 and WW2. It’s always important to remember their sacrifice and service to our country.
At Woodland Grove, they had a resident talk, where they shared their memories and fears of those days. Thanks to the Lifestyles team member Corinna, who organised a fantastic event, and for the lovely poems she chose for the occasion.
Thank you to all our care homes for keeping these memories alive so that we never forget the sacrifices that were made.
