March Moments at Droimnín Nursing Home

Halfway through March and Droimnín Nursing Home is buzzing with excitement and warmth! We’ve already wrapped up some fantastic events and there’s still more to come. 

 

From raising awareness on Denim Day to toasting the incredible ladies on International Women’s Day, and not forgetting those special birthday cheers, it’s been a month filled with joy and community spirit. 

 

And with St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we can hardly wait to dive into the festivities. Stay tuned as we share the heartwarming tales and memorable moments from our March adventures at Droimnín.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve been getting up to and what’s planned for the rest of the month:

 

Denim Day for Dementia

We kicked off the month with Denim Day for Dementia on March 1st, a day dedicated to raising awareness and funds for dementia care and research. Staff donned their best denim in a show of solidarity, sharing stories and supporting this important cause.

 

Celebrating Women: International Women’s Day

March 8th shone a spotlight on the remarkable women in our lives and community with International Women’s Day. A day of storytelling, appreciation, and creative activities underscored the diverse roles women play and their invaluable contributions to our world.

 

Mother’s Day Magic

Mother’s Day on March 10th was a heartfelt celebration of the maternal figures in our lives. The day was filled with flowers, tea, and performances, creating a warm and loving atmosphere for all our residents to enjoy.

 

St. Patrick’s Day

The upcoming St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th promises a vibrant celebration of Irish culture and heritage. With decorations, music, and traditional Irish fare, we’re excited to embrace the spirit of the Emerald Isle.

 

Reflection: Holy Week

As March draws to a close, Good Friday and Palm Sunday from March 29th-31st will offer moments of reflection and renewal. Special services and activities will provide spaces for contemplation and community.

 

Birthdays Galore

March is also a special month for residents Joe O’Dooley, Frank Maloney, James Donoghue, and Richard Sherlock as we celebrate their birthdays. Each birthday is a chance to honour their stories, laughter, and the joy they bring to Droimnín.Happy Birthday to all!

 

Weekly Mass

Fr. Kelly and Fr. David continues to provide spiritual nourishment with weekly Mass, offering peace, comfort, and a sense of belonging to our residents.

 

A Poetic Touch: Joe O’Dooley’s Creative Spark

A highlight of the month was a beautiful poem penned by resident Joe O’Dooley, showcasing the depth of talent and creativity within our community. His words resonated deeply, adding a unique and personal touch to our March reflections.

March is flying by at Droimnín, and it’s been a whirlwind of laughter, celebrations, and special moments that have brought us all closer. From marking important days that highlight the causes close to our hearts, to celebrating the incredible women in our community and cheering on our friends during their birthday festivities,

 

As we look forward to the rest of the month, especially the excitement of St. Patrick’s Day, we want to express our heartfelt thanks to the friends, family, and loved ones of our residents for being an integral part of our journey. Your continuous support and love make these celebrations even more meaningful. Here’s to making more cherished memories together at Droimnín Nursing Home.
