Bewitching tricks and spooky treats were on offer at a Norton care home.

Barchester’s Rivermead care home, in Norton, was a den of ghoulish activity as the home’s spooky Halloween afternoon party got in to full swing.

Residents and staff got in to the spirit of things by decorating the home, holding a pumpkin carving morning, having a disco with Halloween-themed songs from our musical entertainer Martin then followed by some of the residents favourite songs that we had a lovely sing and dance to.

General Manager, Sarah Jackson, said: “Our staff and residents love any excuse for a party! The home looks fantastic with all the decorations and our head chef did us proud with lots of spooky treats – we’ve all had a brilliant time.”

Glenda Hamilton, resident at Rivermead Care Home said: “It has been such a fun day. It was wonderful to see everyone go to so much effort to get into the Halloween spirit. I really enjoyed the pumpkin carving and the music man.

Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.

Rivermead Care Home is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering high-quality care across its care homes and hospitals. Rivermead provides nursing care, residential care, respite care.
