Sunrise of Bassett hosted a party for residents and the team to celebrate the 14th birthday of the care home.
The building which the home now occupies was originally called the Concorde Club but was converted into The Bassett Hotel which was famous for its Charlie Chalk themed restaurant. Sunrise of Bassett then took on the building and opened its doors in 2006.
When the care home opened, 14 residents moved in straight away. Some team members have worked at Sunrise of Bassett since it opened including Julie Mcdonnell, Barbara Williams, Ewa Baczkowska, Anna Sobechowicz and Carol Banks.
To celebrate the home’s birthday, residents enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon in the garden with entertainment from the Pearly Pride. The entertainers captured the spirit, fun and warmth of the Variety and Music Hall era, performing a unique and modern show.
Lorraine Riggs, a Resident at Sunrise of Bassett said:
“The celebrations to mark 14 years since Sunrise of Bassett opened were magnificent, so many staff members were involved. To them, I give a heartfelt ‘thank you’.
“The organisation, decorations and food were superb. The entertainers were just right for the occasion, I hope they can come again. I was struck by the support team members gave to each other and to the residents.
“It was a happy, uplifting afternoon- just what we needed.”
Another resident, Mollie Davy added:
“Thank you, Pearly King and Queen and all the helpers, for making Sunrise of Bassett 14th celebrations so enjoyable for us residents.”
Kim Harding, General Manager at Sunrise of Bassett said:
“We had such a wonderful day celebrating Sunrise of Bassett’s 14th birthday. It was great to come together to celebrate our lovely community here with such a fun-filled afternoon.
We tucked into some delicious food made by our in-house dining team and enjoyed some prosecco while watching the entertainment. Happy birthday Sunrise of Bassett!”
