92% of residents at Botham Hall Care Home in Huddersfield are happy at the home. The recent action packed activities calendar, demonstrates why.
Everyone at the home has a ball, when regular pet therapy dog Benji comes to visit. Whether the residents pet him or play with him Benji is always happy to see the residents and the team.
Christina Halonka, Home Manager said: “We’re all very taken with Benji here, especially Mr and Mrs Norcliffe who are often first in line when Benji comes to visit. Benji even participated in our movie afternoon we ran for the residents, complete with cinema snacks. All in all a lovely afternoon was had by all.”
When Benji isn’t around other activities are run to keep the residents busy. These activities range from baking, a crisp and wine evening, exercise sessions, arts and crafts afternoons and reading sessions. Recently, a local dance troupe came in to entertain the residents, some of whom wanted to show off their own moves.
Residents also get the chance to go out and about. The most recent trip was to the local village hall for a ‘Memory Day’.
Christina Halonka added: “It’s been a busy few weeks here at Botham Hall. All the team here love what they do and all of our hard work was rewarded with a good Care Quality Commission Report, which I am really pleased about. We also received an award from CareHome.co.uk with regards to the number of reviews we’ve received on their website. We love it here and the residents make it a joy for us to come to work. I look forward to a very bright future here at Botham Hall.”
