MARCH 2017 NEWSLETTER
We would firstly like to thank you all for your support with our fundraiser night. The night was a great success and all who came had fun. We would like to send a special thank you to the Carousel Hotel, who did us proud. And also Dave Bear and guests for the entertainment.
As a home, due to your generosity, we have managed to raise almost £2000. This has allowed us to purchase another 10 tablets for our residents. And they love them!
THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING US MAKE A DIFFERENCE !
NOW DOWN TO WORK ISSUES
Firstly we would like to introduce to you our new Deputy Manager, Barbara Taylor . Barbara comes to us with a wealth of knowledge in dementia care. She is a hard working individual and has the same passion as Debbie has for dementia care. Please stop and and say “Hello”
We have also taken on Alison Cox as our new chef. Again Alison has worked in the industry for many years and again has a great wealth of knowledge in regards to healthy nutrition for dementia residents.
Rob has taken the new role of the homes Handy man. This will allow all Debbie’s ideas to become reality
WHATS GOING ON
As normal Debbie is being very pro active and has already began to arrange an eggstavaganza over the Easter holidays. She is hoping to invite the children in again on Thursday 13th April. To perform their Easter show.
The residents are busy making their Easter Bonnets and the home is organising a fun party day on Good Friday. This is where the residents will show off their creations. We have also heard on the grape vine that the Easter bunny may be visiting the home with gifts.
Our planned entertainment days
Every 2nd Monday at 2pm we have now arranged for Elite College to come in and do arm chair exercises with all our residents. This has gone down really well and as Im sure you agree is healthy for all who join in.
