Lanlgey-Park-CHOD-2016-1

3 Jul 2016

Langley Park Care Home in Langley celebrated their 25th birthday on Friday 17th June as part of Care Home Open Day.

Sharon Smith, Care Home Manager, said: “I can’t believe Langley Park has been open for 25 years. We wanted to celebrate this achievement alongside the local community, so we invited everyone to come in and take part.”

As part of the celebrations the home hired a local entertainer, who sang some classic hits which people sang along to. Once the entertainer had finished, people were still in the wax lyrical mood, so the home then held a karaoke session which saw residents, relatives, visitors and the team alike all get up and have a go.

Sharon Smith added: “Everyone had a lovely time on the day, and it was a pleasure welcoming so many people into Langley Park. Let’s hope we’re here for another 25 years. The party then would be amazing!”

Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Events like the one at Langley Park Care Home will help to create lasting links between the residents and their local community.

Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.

Middleton-Hall-Linda-Bruce-retirement

3 Jul 2016

Everyone at Middleton Hall Care Home in Uphall bid a fond farewell to Deputy Home Manager Linda Bruce. Linda retired on Thursday 16th June after being at Middleton Hall for 27 years.

Ann Simpson, Home Manager, said: “Linda will be missed by everyone here. She was a stalwart for ensuring that everyone was immaculate when they worked in the care home, and would regularly tell members of the team to remove hoop earrings, necklaces and nail polish. This high standard was picked up on, and our Personal Activities Leader Katie created a cake topper highlighting Linda’s positive and robust stance.

“Before she left, Linda thought she’d be a little bit of a rebel. She came into the home with her nails painted, hoop earrings in and a lovely necklace on. True to form all of the team repeatedly told her to take off her non-uniform items. I think this goes to show how much of a positive impact Linda has had on our team here. We all wish you all the best as you take on new ventures Linda.”

Last week Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow, welcomed their inspectors in with open arms.

Katy Jenks, Home Manager, explained: “We welcomed the Care Commission into Campsie View last week and showed them everything they wanted to see. After spending some time with us, the feedback we received was extremely positive. We’re just waiting for the final report to come back now.

“One the Care Commission left, we held a little celebratory party with the residents and the team, as a way to celebrate everything we’ve achieved. Well done team!”
