During the month of December, the residents of Wren House Care Home in Warminster got to enjoy some socially-distanced traditions.
The Wren House residents were treated to a lovely Christmas carol performance by singers from the Minster Church in Warminster. The carollers serenaded everyone from the garden, while residents listened to the lovely Christmas songs from the warmth of inside.
Sat next to the home’s beautifully decorated Christmas tree, the Wren House residents sang and clapped along to a selection of Christmas classics.
The home has a much-cherished connection to Minster Church. However, due to the pandemic, members of the church have not been able to visit their Wren House friends. That made the outdoor performance all the more special for everyone involved.
In another festive treat, residents at the home watched a virtual performance of A Christmas Carol, live from Bristol Old Vic Theatre. The care team set up the home’s giant activity tablet to stream the performance, creating a theatre-style atmosphere. Although Christmas has been very different this year, we have tried to ensure that everyone can still enjoy the magic of the festive season.
Pauline Taylor, 87, a resident at Wren House care home, said: “Despite being unable to see a live pantomime or take part in other Christmas traditions with family and friends, the staff at Wren House have really helped us to celebrate Christmas properly. I am looking forward to things being more normal, but I have really enjoyed the festivities.”
With its town centre location, Wren House is very much a part of the local community. The team at the home have used technology to keep residents virtually in touch throughout the pandemic.
