Rothley Care Home Residents Say ‘You’re Never Too Old to do The Hokey Cokey’

Residents at Mountview care home in Rothley channelled their inner children this month, celebrating National Grandparents Day with their families.

In honour of National Grandparents Day, the care staff at Mountview organised a party for their residents, inviting the residents’ children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to spend the day together.

A Leicestershire based Mr. Tumble tribute act from Party Time with James performed for four generations of families, with party songs to get everyone up and dancing.

92-year-old Edna Colton, who spent the day with her grandchildren, said, ‘You are never too old to do The Hokey Cokey! We loved the party – there’s always something happening here at Mountview, it’s just brilliant.’ 

The daughter-in-law of another resident said her family had ‘an absolutely amazing day’, and thought it was ‘brilliant’ to be part of somethinginvolving all generations.

After all the fun and dancing, the residents and their families enjoyed some light refreshments, freshly made by the care home’s kitchen team.

Stacie Weaver, the Home Manager at Mountview, said, ‘It’s so important to us that our residents’ families feel welcome, and have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities with their loved ones who live with us.

‘Our Mr. Tumble party was great! Everyone had so much fun, and one family has even booked Mr. Tumble for their next family event. We can’t wait to do it all again!’
