News & Activities June 2022

Celebrations

We celebrated a special day for Maureen last month surrounded by staff and her daughter, we hope you had a lovely day.

Dining Room Update

After some disappointing setbacks we are officially getting closer and closer to the big reveal. We would like to say a huge “Thank You” again to all our wonderful residents for being understanding and excited just like us for the big finish.

Feedback

We love and appreciate hearing your feedback and reviews and ask if you could spare a few minutes to post a five star review on carehome.co.uk. There is also a bottle of wine for all those who publish their review, we will even provide a straw for the wine!

A huge THANK YOU to those family members who have already submitted theirs 🙂

 

Visiting/Testing

We are pleased to inform you that following Liam’s email that we are no longer asking for testing when coming into the home but masks are to remain please. We continue to take bookings for you all to come and see your loved ones so we are aware of those coming and going, this can now be more than one person at a time. Please note, we continue to ask that all family members coming into the home continue to sign in using our tablet system.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to either Holly or Katherine.


All staff continue to carry out testing; new government guidelines have stated we can continue to testing twice a week, we will continue to keep you updated.

Residents are now no longer required to test.
