Our Whiteboard in the Dining Room

Our Whiteboard system for Nutrition (allergies and food consistency) has been praised by staff in the BDA The Association of UK Dietitians, as the best system they have ever seen, clear and simple. Our recommendations for a simple end user Care Home training on Youtube will also be discussed for possible adoption. This may lead to greater safety for dysphagia and allergic patients in UK….small seeds. Further reading:

Staff Christmas Celebration 20th Dec 2017

Our staff work so hard and are nothing short of dedicated. Throughout the year I have had numerous compliments, and gifts, from relatives and friends who want to say thank you. Well we do the same at Christmas by holding the best Christmas party we can put on. This year we held it at the Masonic Hall in Weston. The staff had a 4-course dinner and a few drinks (a special thanks to the relatives who contributed to that). They then sang and danced to the fantastic singing of the Lipinski Brothers. Everybody enjoyed themselves and lucky ones went on to win some lovely prizes. We wish all staff, Residents and relatives a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Children come to see our Residents

Next door we have a pre-school childcare group who now come regularly to visit our Residents. The children are between 3 and 4 years old and today visited 8 of our Residents. They sang “ABC” and there were smiles all round. A special thanks to Kim, who brings them. We hope to establish bonds between our Residents and individual children, so both gain from the visits.
