Perry Tree Centre
Attended the Perry Tree Drive through VE Day
On Friday 8th May I attended the Perry Tree Drive through, which celebrated the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.
Upon my arrival, I was immediately impressed at how well organised & safely coordinated the plan was implemented during this time of social distancing due to Covid-19. I was the first to arrive and was welcomed into the car park by the Service Manager at exactly 11am as planned. The residents were transported outside of the building in wheelchairs by the staff so that they could see their relatives as they drove through the car park. There were also some lovely VE Day decorations/bunting placed outside and drinks for the residents.
The staff & residents were all very well dressed. My Grandmother looked lovely & happy. The weather was also sunny & bright which assisted with the smooth running of the event.
I was most impressed by Perry Trees thoughtfulness and efforts in trying to ensure that their residents maintain a close connection with their relatives by providing such an opportunity during this difficult time. I have not heard of many residential homes across the country offering anything similar. Therefore as a family we feel very blessed & privileged to have been able to do this.
