30 residents living in one of Season homes, Esther Randall Court in Camden were invited for an afternoon tea party and Christmas celebrations at the five star Melia White House hotel on Tuesday 18 December. The get-together was initiated by the Learning and Development Advisor of the property, Jonathan Antonacci.
Located just a few steps away from home, the residents walked into the beautifully decked up hotel, along with guest members from a partner organisation, Third Age UK. Hotel staff had prepared a delicious spread of afternoon snacks and hot drinks, and the staff volunteered to entertain our residents with music as they dance to waltz and ballroom music. The residents were really thrilled to dance with the festively dressed staff members and they too seemed to have a great time.
Our most senior resident, Kathleen who turned 104 this year, also participated for a while. One of our other senior residents Daniel, who suffers from Parkinson’s did not stop dancing until the music stopped. He said, that this is the most fun he has had in a while and would’ve loved to dance more.
Ward Councillor Heather Johnson and staff dropped by the event and engaged with the older residents as well. The hotel is considering hosting our elderly residents again during the summer.
