Young and old alike enjoy Easter egg hunt at Exeter nursing home

Young and old enjoyed the fun of an Easter egg hunt after Exeter primary school pupils were invited to a care home for a big search. The Cumberland Grange retirement home in Barchester in Exeter has invited Monkerton Community Primary School for an Easter egg hunt in the garden.

The staff and residents hid 80 colored eggs in the garden for the children in the reception to find, and they found them all. One of the Cumberland Grange residents, Maureen, said what a privilege it was to be part of such a beautiful day. Maureen took care of distributing the Easter eggs to the children at the end.

Managing Director Michele said: “Our residents love feeling part of the community and therefore to be able to organize such a brilliant event with the local primary school is, as Maureen says, a real privilege. It was fantastic to see our residents interact with the children and help them find the hidden eggs. Lots of smiles and laughs all around.

“Our varied life enrichment program keeps residents active and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities. We make our homes as safe as possible and will ensure that all new residents and staff are vaccinated before moving into or working in our homes.
