Garth House Celebrates Burns Night

Garth House Care Home resident celebrating Burns Night at the end of January 2023

Residents and staff at Garth House Care Home had a fun evening celebrating Burns Night at the end of January. They prepared for the event by making some Scottish bunting with the help of the Health and Wellbeing Coordinator.

The event started with a presentation by the Health and Wellbeing Coordinator, followed by everyone joining in a lovely poem reading. After that, we all enjoyed taking part in a fun quiz and wordsearch related to Burns Night.

Burns Night is held annually and celebrates the life of the poet Robert Burns, who was born on the 25th January. It is a chance to celebrate his contribution to Scottish culture, with his best known work being  Auld Land Syne – traditionally sung on New Year’s Eve to welcome in the new year.

Our residents also enjoyed a special concert and watching a short documentary. A special Burns Night menu was prepared by our Head Chef and all of our residents thoroughly enjoyed the Scottish themed feast and evenings’ entertainment.

Garth House provides residential, nursing and dementia care on a permanent or short stay basis. If you are looking for a care home and want to find out more about our home call freephone 0808 223 5507.
