Tooting care home opens its doors to the public
Ronald Gibson House opened its doors to the public recently to give the local community a chance to look around the home, chat with residents and to meet with the team.
It was a lively event which kicked off with a Coffee Morning, including lots of yummy cake and refreshments which were also served throughout the day. A very friendly Pets as Therapy dog (Tui) attended as a special guest and gave a great deal of delight to the residents.
The stalls with volunteering and fundraising information proved to be of great interest to visitors and there were also numerous tours of the home.
Charity, Music in Hospitals put on an amazing jazz and swing performance, Taryn Kay sang golden oldies in a sparkling dress and made everyone happy with her cheeky smile. Ronald Gibson House’s very own Maintenance man, John sang played the guitar whilst the Activities Co-ordinator, Flora played the violin.
Care Home Manger Victor Njoku said “It was a great day, and we were also really please to welcome back some past Intermediate Care residents too - it was lovely to see them looking so well. I would also like to thank the individuals who kindly made donations.”
