Video: Children Spread Holiday Spirit At KEMH

December 21, 2018

Not to be forgotten and certainly in need of joyful injection to the spirit are those suffering from health problems, several of whom are confined to confined to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital over the holiday season.

And in fine tune with the holiday season there are several activities that have and are taking place in various areas of the hospital to comfort and boost the spirit of patients and staff.

Long Term Care Unit Activities Coordinator Capri Smith has been extremely busy this year — and in past years — organising entertainment in the lobby of KEMH, her schedule a hectic one as each day brings an inflow of rambunctious youngsters and their not so tiny voices to the sanitised confines, carolling and cavorting.

“Year after year our residents look forward to the mini concerts,” said Ms Smith. “It stimulates their minds and the joy on their faces makes it clear that they appreciate the performances. Those who are able, actually share with us how much they enjoy the singing, dancing and whatever is performed.

Parties on each of the long term care wards are given by the Hospitals Auxiliary of Bermuda. In addition to entertainment and snacks, the HAB also give each resident a gift.

“It’s important to us that all of the Long Term Care residents feel valued and appreciated,” said HAB General Manager Nancy Oughton. “As long as we are able, we will continue our tradition of reaching out to this group during the Christmas holiday season.”

The schedule featured school choirs and other holiday performances, is open and free to the public, and most of all comes filled with loving goodwill.
