Upton Mill Care Home is purpose built to provide a spacious and practical environment for residents with a range of differing care requirements, including residential and nursing care, with a dedicated suite for dementia care. Every one of Upton Mill’s private furnished bedrooms has an en suite wetroom, and whilst beautifully decorated, they are also designed with the care of our residents in mind.

The home also benefits from an extensive range of communal spaces, including lounges and dining rooms, as well as a café, cinema, hairdressing salon and a gym. A private dining room is available for family gatherings and special occasions.

It was here that we found ourselves on Valentines Day to provide background music during a special romantic lunch which had been arranged for the residents.

Music for Valentines Day Lunch

This was our second visit to Upton Mill Care Home in Tetbury to provide musical entertainment for their residents. Previously we had been outside providing music whilst residents had visits from family members.

Today it was more private affair and the tables had been set up in the dining room, all beautifully decorated with hearts to create a romantic atmosphere.

Musically speaking we mostly played music from the early to mid part of the twentieth century. Music from the American Songbook as well as jazz standards always lend themselves to these sorts of occasions. We even had some couples get up and dance to a couple of numbers which was delightful to see.

You can hear a lot of the songs we played by visiting our listen page.
