To celebrate Remembrance Day, Richmond Nursing Home ran a unique opportunity for local families to find out more about their own family’s contribution to the World Wars.On Saturday 14th November Richmond invited local people to bring in their family’s military medals and memorabilia to a host of local veterans and experts in order to find out the real stories behind those objects and to answer any questions concerning them. There were numerous experts in general military history in attendance to familiarize visitors with actual objects their relatives would have encountered on the front lines and to help them better understand and appreciate the contributions of their family to the War effort..

ALZHEIMER’S SOCIETY - MEMORY WALKOn 5 September 2015, staff, relatives and residents took part in our own Memory Walk to raise money for The Alzheimer’s Society. The walk began at 10.00am at Bangor Marina and staff walked 7 miles along the coastal path to Richmond Nursing Home. They were joined there by relatives and residents in wheelchairs and continued the 3 mile walk from Cultra to Holywood and back again. It was a great day and the rain stayed away and everyone returned to Richmond for a lunch buffet. A fantastic sum of £1410.00 was raised for the Alzheimer’s Society – a huge thank you to all who took part, sponsored the walkers or made a donation.
DINING ROOM In August 2015 our Dining Room was refurbished and we celebrated this with a Grand Opening and Afternoon Tea.
