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.
“I couldn't wish for better care. Staff treat my husband as a friend and not just another patient.
Always there for me with support when needed.”

“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.”
