News & Activities September 2022

Welcome

We welcomed our lovely new resident Helena Wasyluk to the Nettlestead Family last weekend! We hope you enjoy your stay with us making happy memories.

Celebrations

We celebrated a wonderful birthday with Patricia Welfare! We hope you had a wonderful birthday with us here at Nettlestead.

 

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

All testing at Nettlestead has officially been stopped unless anyone is symptomatic.

For many this is a huge celebration that we have been awaiting through the years of the pandemic but we also appreciate this will bring some worries and concerns.

We continue to ask all families to kindly carry on wearing masks when in the home  to minimise the risks. We are no longer taking bookings and you are able to freely come by as you please. 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.
