Balhousie Resident laughing with the Grinch

It’s nearly the big day, and all the staff across our homes have been working hard to sweep their homes up in the party spirit.

There’s been mulled wine, mince pies, and lots of carols to sing along with, as well as Christmas raffles and prize bingo, while kitchen staff have been creating some outstanding festive buffets; even grandchildren have been involved in setting up Christmas trees. Balhousie Brookfield had live music from Michelle Farquharson for their party, Balhousie Alastrean’s Christmas party started off with a visit from the Banchory Singers , while Balhousie, The Glens in Edzell, had an unexpected green guest and Balhousie Luncarty had a real live Elf on the Shelf!

And besides the singing, dancing, eating and drinking, and all the making merry that is essential for a memorable festive party, the Big Man had got his elves to find time in his very busy schedule, to make some early visits to our residents with extra surprise gifts.

Thank you Father Christmas! Your best gifts, as ever, are all the smiles you give away!

The pictures say more than words ever could – and there are some Christmas wishes from our residents directly to you!
