Culmore Goes Country

Articles Comments Off on Culmore Goes Country ,


On Thursday 25th August 2016, Culmore Manor Care Home hosted a Country and Western Night to raise monies for the Comfort Fund.

Residents and staff have an insatiable appetite for all things Western and so it was that a Country theme seemed fitting for the inaugural summer party.

Culmore Manor, strategically located in the Northwest of the province in Derry / Londonderry, didn’t let the weather interfere with their plans to hold their annual summer party and held an indoor celebration!

The event, an evening affair, began with residents, families and staff arriving decked out in their checked shirts and cowboy hats. Visitors at the event being designer-label followers, Stetson and Ten Gallon head attire made an appearance!

Local musicians/entertainers, William and Mena provided the musical backdrop of tunes for the line dancing enthusiasts, those able bodied and not all took part, either on the floor or enjoying as spectators.

In true Northern Irish style, the infamous ‘Cowboy Supper’ was dished up during the interlude in activities and proved a firm favourite with many. The sausage, beans and chips certainly gave fuel for the second half of the evening!

Further to the recent announcement by the Health Minister, facilitating contact with your loved ones will need to be formally risk assessed to ensure that visiting can happen in the safest way possible. Guidelines have just been received which will need to be considered carefully. Communication around how the organisation will commence visiting will be issued at the start of next week.

Visiting will remained closed until then, however we would encourage virtual visiting and telephone contact with the Homes to continue, as we know that this has worked really well so far. Our main focus will always be the safety of all residents and staff within our care. Our staff teams have been superb and continue to demonstrate their dedication and commitment in keeping your loved ones protected at this time.

Many thanks for your continued support, understanding and patience.
