Ascot Ladies Day comes to Riverside Place

Riverside Place Care Home resident Yvonne, donning her hat creation for Ascot Ladies Day 2023

The women at Riverside Place Care Home wanted to dress up. They thought Ascot Ladies Day was a great chance to do so!

Before Ascot Ladies Day, we made hats and fascinators. We used tissue paper flowers to decorate them. On the day itself, we had a pamper morning with massage, make up and manicures. In the afternoon, we had elderflower cordial cocktails and afternoon tea whilst watching the races.

Residents had a sweepstake on the 3.05pm race, where Desert Storm (the King’s horse) won! Rita won a floral ornament for picking the winner.

It was a wonderful couple of days and our ladies thoroughly enjoyed putting on their finery and being spoilt for a day. Marjory said “I just love looking at all the fashions , if I get married again, I want a copy made of Queen Camilla’s outfit!”.

Riverside Place 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 208 4570.
