It was Ralph’s 82nd birthday on Monday 24 January at Loose Valley Care Home and our staff visited his room with a delicious coffee cake, singing ‘Happy birthday!’
He was so surprised! His room was decorated with balloons and banners to let anyone passing know it was his birthday (…he was trying to keep it quiet!).
He came down for a game of Scrabble in the afternoon, coming 3rd out of four players; each of them got a prize from our basket – they could choose from mini Guylian or Lindt chocolates, hand cream or a London pen.
Ralph had never played Scrabble before, so three of our ladies taught him the rules of the game, which he really enjoyed, accompanied by a cup of coffee and chat!
Many happy returns Ralph!
