At Leycester House Care Home, we believe in creating meaningful experiences for our residents that bring joy and evoke cherished memories. This weekend, we had the pleasure of taking Mavis and Barbara, two residents with farming backgrounds, on a heart-warming trip down memory lane to Moreton Morrel for the lambing weekend.


As we arrived at the picturesque farm, the air was filled with anticipation and excitement. Mavis and Barbara’s eyes sparkled with joy, and their faces lit up with smiles. It was evident that this trip had taken them back to their youthful days, filled with the simplicity and happiness that only farm life can bring.

The highlight of the afternoon was yet to come, Mavis and Barbara’s eyes widened with delight as they spotted a pen filled with fluffy, playful lambs. Their hearts skipped a beat as they eagerly approached the pen, their faces glowing with anticipation.


As they entered the enclosure, a sense of pure joy filled the air. Mavis and Barbara could hardly contain their excitement as they each cradled a tiny lamb in their arms. The soft wool tickled their cheeks, and the warmth of the little creature radiated through their hands. In that moment, time seemed to stand still, and they were transported back to a time when life was simpler and full of innocent happiness.

Mavis’s said, “This brings back so many wonderful memories of my father and me on the farm. I never thought I would have the chance to experience this again at my age.” It was a heart-warming sight to see her dreams come true right before our eyes.

Barbara, too, was overwhelmed with gratitude. She hugged the lamb tightly, as if to savor every precious second of the experience.

As we left the farm that day, the joy and happiness on Mavis and Barbara’s faces were imprinted in our hearts. We realised that it is the simple things in life, like a cuddle with a lamb, that can bring immeasurable joy and fulfilment.

At Leycester House Care Home, we strive to create these magical moments for our residents, reminding them of their past, igniting their spirits, and making dreams come true. It is our utmost pleasure to witness the joy on their faces and to be part of their journey, enriching their lives with happiness and cherished memories.
