St George’s Care Nurtures Special Event Plans for the Festive Season
Ensuring that residents can enjoy the festive season to the fullest
Casa Antonia in Balzan and The Imperial in Sliema, both operated by St George’s Care Ltd, lined up an extensive events programme for December to ensure that residents can enjoy the festive season to the fullest.
The in-house activity coordinators are organising Christmas-themed reminiscent classes, music sessions, crafts and cooking events. Such activities help slow the deterioration of seniors’ cognitive function, improve communicational skills, and alleviate depression while also triggering happy memories and encouraging social bonding and self-expression.
The December schedule includes performances by local choirs, bands and musicians such as Santa Maria Accordion Band, magician Morgan Mage, Charles Ellul-led folklore Rima Band, and Maria Bambina Mellieħa Choir. A Special Concert will be held on the 18th of December in association with the Malta Cultural Institute and the Medina Foundation for Music at The Imperial in Sliema; open to both residents and outside spectators.
Additionally, following its success last year, a staff talent show serve as a casual staff and residents Christmas get together. Employees from the different departments will showcase their musical and dancing talents, while residents will act as judges.
A traditional lunch will be served on Christmas Eve, with gifts distributed to all residents. Casa Antonia will host Christmas Eve mass, including the ‘Priedka tal-Milied’, followed by mulled wine and traditional Imbuljuta (chestnut stew). At both Homes, visiting family and friends will have access to mulled wine to share on selected days. Residents will have the possibility to also enjoy a specially-prepared lunch on New Year’s Eve.
December also sees the official start of The Imperial Club, where members can enjoy the Home’s facilities and activities, including morning tea and snacks and aqua aerobics classes. Furthermore, a member’s Christmas Party with live music will be held.
