International Men’s Day marked at Chesterfield care home

By 21st November, 2018 Press Releases Comments Off

ELDERLY gentlemen living at a Chesterfield care home created homemade cards for their loved ones to mark International Men’s Day.

Holmewood Care Home’s male residents produced the cards to show family and friends their appreciation for being part of their lives.

Gerald Yemm made a card for the home’s manager, Kathleen Richardson, as he does not have any family members.

He said: “I consider Kathleen to be my family.”

Another resident, Keith Pass, made a card for carer Cathy Shaw to show his appreciation for the care she provides.

As well as the card workshop, the residents were treated to a pub quiz, beers and other alcoholic beverages at the home, on Barnfield Close.

Home manager Kathleen said: “The theme of our International Men’s Day is men leading by example.

“We adopted a saying from Mahatma Gandhi for the day: ‘You must become the change you want to see in the world’, which the residents really liked.

“Everyone had a really good day and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of the pub quiz.”
