On Wednesday 21st December Viking Bay became standing room only for our Christmas Party.
The Garden Room Winter Wonderland, was filled with Residents, Family, Friends and staff enjoying the party atmosphere, joining in with entertainment provided by John and Angie and socializing. The rendition of the 12 days of Christmas by "volunteers" caused much merriment. It was a joy to see residents and their families and friends so relaxed and happy, full of Christmas spirit.
A big thank you to our staff members who attended, many bringing along their families.
Our Chefs prepared a tasty buffet in the Olive Room which was also filled with the seasonal smell of mulled wine.
A big thank you to everyone involved for making the day such a huge success.
“Mum has been there two years after stroke in 2012. My mother was really active before her stroke. I never wanted to put my mum in a nursing home, but being disabled myself doing all we could as a family at home. First few years caring for her at home we had no option in the end and put her in a nursing home. She needed 24 hr care. Has taken a few changes to find the right one, but we have finally found it. Carers are really good with her and concerns you may have. The manager is really helpful. There are always problems when relatives adapt to living in a nursing home big change for them. Staff and management have done best to make mum feel at home. Problems fixed no problem, they are used to caring for the elderly they now, want works best for the peace of mind of our loved ones, advise, help make decisions. Makes loved one's worries go away. Daily cleaning happy in their environment my mother is happy there & calls it home dining room, tv lounge garden party's entertainment. Good food living room seafront is so close. beach cafe ice cream, pub high street”

“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.”
