My Daddy

Son of a preacher man.

Today Dad's Home had a BBQ for family and friends .... Nick didn't want to go, and he wanted to visit on the Friday, so that suited me ... a BBQ with Dad, and a great walk yesterday with Jiffy.

I got there soon after it started and arrived to be told Dad had already downed his glass of Pimms!! We then both had one!!! Dad had a special burger ordered, and we had a our dinner together. Tim & Claire arrived later, so that we could spend some time together before Dad went upstairs to rest.


Dad, Tim & Claire

Dad even had a temporary tattoo .... which certainly made us all giggle

They have a visiting pony! How cool. :) I've heard of visiting dogs, but not ponies.

That pony was so well behaved, as she was only 4. She is owned by one of the carers, so also good to see staff willing to be even more involved with the care of the residents

Very nice. I particularly liked the therapy pony.

A therapy pony is a brilliant idea! And your dad looks very content. xx

Dad is very relaxed at present, but there again the staff are all great with him.

They doing a BBQ? Sounds like a good place. Your dad really likes it there?

It was such a great atmosphere.

Yes Dad is happy there, which makes it easier for us all. The staff are great with him, they help him, but also joke with him, which makes it more relaxing for him

It looks like a very good time was had by all and the therapy pony was a nice surprise.

Just wish I hadn't driven ... the Pimms was great and there was wine on offer!!

Dad has always loved dressing up smart, and it is great that they keep him well dressed, hair cut ... and they have all had to learn to tie a tie especially for him!!

It's a lovely setting isn't it. Your Dad looks very well.

Dad is doing well this last few weeks. It is a lovely home ... nicely set, but also well cared for. That's why I wanted to share a couple of photos.

It is a lovely place - and so caring.

The horse is owned by one of the members of staff .... so really just showing how amazing some of the staff are.
