Horsham care home taken back to 1950s with visit from Elvis

It was party time for residents at a local Horsham care home when ‘the King’ visited, entertaining residents with rock ‘n’ roll classics.

The residents at Care UK’s Skylark House, on St Marks Lane, were taken back to the 1950s with a performance of Elvis’ greatest hits, including Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog and Jailhouse Rock.

Devendra Lallchand, home manager at Skylark House, said: “The Elvis impersonator was a huge hit and helped create a fantastic atmosphere, with many of our residents and guests singing along, tapping their feet and getting into the party spirit.

“For many of the residents, this is the music they grew up with, and it was great to hear about memories brought back by listening to classic Elvis hits!”

Skylark House has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short term respite and palliative care.
