Park-House-Northants-Pet-Therapy-1

25 May 2016

Residents at Park House Care Home in Northants took part in some very special pet therapy, when they got to handle owls, frogs and some other creatures.

Pet therapy really appeals to residents as it helps them to relax.

Jayne Lack, Home Manager, said: “The residents really enjoyed the birds and other creatures. Everyone had a great time, although some of us who aren’t bird lovers gave the owls a wide berth!

“I want to thank Owls to Behold and Wild Science for dropping in. You definitely gave our residents a special experience.”

Pellon-Care-Centre-CHAP-Award-Faith-Whitehead

25 May 2016

On Tuesday 10th May, the team at Pellon Care Centre in Halifax celebrated a number of land mark achievements.

The celebratory event recognized 6 team members with Long Service Awards, and 2 care assistants who’d successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner Programme.

Laura Clegg, Home Manager, said: “I’m very proud to have such a committed and dedicated team her at Pellon. Both Faith and Debbie worked really hard during the 12 week programme. All of their hard work will have paid off though as they can now complete some nursing duties, giving the nurse time to deal with any complex issues that arise.

“As well as that, we celebrated a combined total of 81 years continued experience here at Pellon, with 6 members of the team receiving Long Service Awards. Having the same team for such a long time has a positive effect on our residents. The continuity helps many of them embrace the team as part of their family, and enables them to get to know each other on a very personal level.”

The following team members were recognised at the ceremony:

  • Faith Whitehead – Care Home Assistant Practitioner
  • Debbie Hall – Care Home Assistant Practitioner
  • Dawn Dewhirst – 15 years’ service
  • Amanda Ismail – 15 years’ service
  • Diane Spruce – 15 years’ service
  • Catheryn Jeffrey – 15 years’ service
  • Parveen Asif – 11 years’ service
  • Ghazala Aleem – 10 years’ service

Congratulations to you all.

Marlborough-Court-Dementia-Awareness-Week-2016

23 May 2016

Residents and families at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead got stuck into an arts and crafts session as a way to raise awareness of dementia.

Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Leader, said: “Last week marked Dementia Awareness Week, and here at Marlborough Court we wanted to do a number of activities to raise awareness of the disease that many of our residents suffer from on a daily basis.

“One of the activities we did was an arts and crafts session. The residents in the dementia unit created their own art exhibition. They decorated their own handprints in a way that represented their individual personalities. These pieces of art have now taken pride of place on the dementia unit, and the residents enjoy showing them off to their families.”

Marlborough Court rounded off Dementia Awareness Week by holding a very sophisticated tea party, chatted about dementia and the impact it has on people’s lives.

Hayley Mercer added: “A lovely day was had by all, and as long as we have educated at least one person about dementia then the week is a success.”
