resident holding up a Christmas stocking

When you live in a care home with lots of other friends on Father Christmas’s ‘Nice’ list, what do you do to make sure he gives all the right presents to the right person on Christmas Day?

A very important question! But Balhousie Dalnaglar in Crieff have got the answer all sorted. Personalised stockings of course!

The residents at the Perthshire home have spent some lovely – if snowy – days indoors in the warm, decorating their own Christmas stockings and making sure they all have their names on to make sure Santa knows where to put which presents. And while listening to Christmas music to get in the festive mood.

And in case anyone’s on the ‘Naughty’ list? Well, they’re all robust enough to hold a little chunk of coal.

But we can’t imagine that could possibly ever happen!
