Northridge House Vocational Training & Research Centre - at St. Luke's Cork

Yesterday we had our first visit to St Luke's Home, Blackrock as part of their celebrations for Cork Lifelong Learning Festival and it was such an uplifting experience. St Luke's is one of the oldest homes in Cork founded in 1872 in Victoria Road then Military Hill until 1994 when they moved to their marvellous home in Blackrock where the facilities include a restaurant, a hairdressing service, physiotherapy and rooms for recreation – art, crafts, music, library etc!.

As part of the festival St Luke's held week long events 'Celebrating the Life in our Years' of their residents (combined years of 10,717!!) which ended with an Afternoon Tea party. We met some marvellous residents (including one from Cobh and one from Spike Island!), day centre visitors and also staff member Carmel from Cobh. We had some great conversations and a sing song first with Victor & Willie from Bluebell and then with with musicians David and Derry at the tea party (with Carole taking the microphone for one song!). The care the staff give to the residents shone through and they should all be very proud of the home they provide to everyone. Thank you to Lisa for extending the invitation to us to be part of your day.
