Birthdays are always a special occasion at Oaklands and we go to every effort to make sure each of our resident’s special days are unique to them.
When Pete – a long-term resident of ours – had his birthday coming up in May, he was initially a little hesitant to celebrate; however, having often spoken about his favourite pastime meals, he was keen to enjoy some of these on the day. From here, Nicola – our manager – and the catering team worked together to create Pete’s very own ‘Birthday Menu’ link to menu here.
On the day, Pete enjoyed everything from kippers and porridge for breakfast, to Eaton mess and cheese & cucumber sandwiches for tea-time.
The menu went down a treat and the following day Pete thanked the team, saying that ‘it had been the best birthday he could have wished for’.
