Luton care home pampers Great Grandmother to celebrate Mother’s Day

Eileen and her two daughters enjoying a Mother's Day treat at our Luton care home

A local Great Grandmother, and mother of six, has been treated to a nail pampering session at our Luton Care Home to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Eileen Gleasure, who is a resident at Little Bramingham Farm Care Home in Bedfordshire, was joined by two of her daughters for the special day.

86-year-old Eileen has six children, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She said the nail pampering session, in the care home’s beauty salon, was a perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Eileen said: “As a mother of six I suppose I am entitled to a little treat to mark Mother’s Day!

“It was so lovely to enjoy the pamper session with my two daughters Margaret and Anne. We’ve never really done anything like that before. It was very relaxing.”

Eileen grew up in Ireland but moved to London when she was just 18. She is familiar with the beauty industry after spending several years working as a hairdresser when she was younger. 

Daughter Margaret Roan said the nail pampering session was a fantastic way to celebrate Mother’s Day as a family.

She said: “It’s wonderful that we could enjoy this time together at Little Bramingham Farm. Mum had a great time and all our nails look beautiful. I’d like to say a big thanks to the home and Nicola, the nail technician.”

Eileen, who was married for 55 years, has lived at our Luton care home for just over a year and is never short of a story to tell carers.

She added: “My first job, when I left school at 15, was working on a farm. My nails certainly didn’t look like they do today back then!”
