The Sun shone brightly and the garden looked inviting for our Easter Party.
The Easter bunny had left paw prints from the front door through to The Garden Room so the children & adults knew that the Easter eggs had been delivered, and no matter how well the eggs had been hidden, those children could sniff that chocolate out! The children's laughter filled the air as did the noise of our visiting farmyard. True to their word, the mobile Farm Experience arrived with two calves, two Pigs, two Lambs and a goat along with Chickens & Chicks.
As Darren sang his Rock 'N' Roll songs our residents enjoyed the music & the sunshine outside in the garden and patio, drinking and eating, many were wearing their Easter bonnets.
Children & residents held the chicks and petted the animals, the experience bringing back memories and stories of childhood.
The whole afternoon was bright and cheerful and once a gin our residents had a very social time.
£77 was raised through our raffle, so Thank You very much to those who bought tickets and donated prizes. The money raised will go towards the residents fund and Debbie has already got her eye on some sound and scent sensory activity sets from Active Minds, a company who design, test and sell products specifically for the needs of the older generation.

“My mother was under your care between Dec 2018 - March 2019.
The staff were on the whole very good and treated my mother with dignity and kindness. Unfortunately, the staff did not know my real mother's personality because it was affected by a terrible brain tumour. Thank you to everyone that cared for my mum and now she is at peace away from all her suffering.”

“During the two years I have been visiting I have found most of the staff including the nurses to be friendly and helpful. I have noticed on numerous occasions how short staffed the home can be. In spite of that, the staff tend to work it out amongst themselves. There is rarely tension between them. Everybody is well cared for and treated with immense dignity. Only on very few occasions have I heard the staff short tempered. I find that very impressive. Cleanliness is good. The rooms are shabby, the carpets equally so. The bedding is dreadful, old, discoloured, mismatched and ill-fitting. The food is exceptionally good. It is always served hot and well presented. Compliments to the chef. My friend's clothes are always clean but she sometimes smells of urine. Short staffed, I would blame for that. I must add that the positive comments far outweigh the negative ones. I am very happy with the love and care my friend receives. It pleases me that she is very fond of the staff.”

“Lovely nursing home, all staff very sweet and caring. The nurses were very attentive and on the ball. Entertainment staff very jolly and always trying to find new things to keep the residents amused.
My mother was admitted from hospital on 'end of life care'. When we viewed the home my family and I found it very calm and quiet and we felt it was a lovely environment to be nursed.”
