Whitby House Care Home in Ellesmere Port invited relatives and friends to a ‘Tree of Lights’ celebration to remember their loved ones who are sadly missed but not forgotten. We sang carols and said a prayer.
Relatives and friends wrote messages on stars to hang on the tree. Following the celebration, the group enjoyed chatting to staff and other visitors with a glass of wine, cheese & crackers and a mince pie.
The feedback from the event was very humbling. Relatives told us they had wanted to visit us previously but found it too upsetting. However, the Tree of Lights celebration gave them the perfect opportunity to do so, and to remember their loved ones with a fitting tribute.
