A garden tea party was a lovely way for Michael to toast his birthday recently over in Chadderton. 

He was joined by fellow residents, who alongside our Supported Living staff at Victoria Street made it a memorable occasion...

Henry wore his brightest threads, Richard helped bake the cake and Linda got the beers in!

They were non-alcoholic...though you might not have known given the excitement they caused!

Michael doesn't communicate verbally but he certainly let us know he was having a good time - through his eyes and smile especially. And we were delighted to safely receive a visit from a couple of his family members too, as well as a telephone call from Spain where his sister lives.

His cousin said...

“We're so happy with how the birthday do turned out. It was made really special.”

Happy birthday Michael. It's great to celebrate it with you!
