Kind-hearted staff at Queen Elizabeth Court, in Llandudno, have been going all out to boost morale for their residents.
Like most other care homes, Queen Elizabeth Court is closed to all but essential visitors to ensure the health and safety of its residents. The Home’s staff are working tirelessly to keep residents safe and to support their wellbeing.
Residents were absolutely delighted last week when the Home’s Facilities Manager, Andrew Stephens, and the Assistant Facilities Manager, Ian Ridgway, had the inspired idea of building a bowling alley in the Home’s lounge!
While the Home’s Activities Coordinator, Gary Carr, has also been working round the clock to set up regular video calls, so that residents can see and speak with their families.
Among the residents making video calls for the first time was Donald Craiger, who was overjoyed to see his wife of 56 years, Jean, who lives nearby.
Gary Carr said:
“It means the world to our residents to be able to see and chat with their loved ones. Donald said how marvellous the technology of today is and how it brought them both together! While Jean she said felt absolutely elated at seeing Donald!”
“Our residents are coping remarkably well and are in good spirits, given the circumstances. One of our ladies, who is 93, said to me, Gary, nothing worries me, we’ve seen it all, we’ve lived through wars.”
“We have a fantastic team here and we’ll get through this together.”
