Random Acts of Kindness celebrated at Allander Court

As part of Random Acts of Kindness day, 17th Feb, the team at Allander Court Care Home in Glasgow all took part in providing all sorts of kind acts throughout the day for both their colleagues and the residents at the home.

To kick start the day, Debbie Martin, Home Manager, treated the team to a special breakfast and coffee to set everyone up for the morning. One resident mentioned they fancied some chips for their lunch, so a member of the team took her to a local chip shop for some, despite the snow! The resident was overwhelmed by this and told us the chips were very tasty.

As another resident passed through the hallway, she heard a song she used to dance to when she was younger. She spoke about her memories of the song, so a team member asked her to dance whilst the song was playing. They gathered quite an audience whilst they danced gracefully around which got everyone’s emotions running.

Debbie told us “We all enjoyed our day of kindness – the dancing topped the day off and was so lovely to watch. We will definitely be keeping up the random acts of kindness throughout the year as they make such a difference to everyone’s happiness levels”.

Residents at Riverside View Care Home in Darlington welcomed Age Concern into the home last week to celebrate everything armed forces related and the service given by veterans.

Claire Westmorland, Home Manager, said: “We have a number of residents in our home who served in the war, and it was nice for them to share their stories, but also a little emotional as many touched on the friends who never made it home. Representatives from Age Concern also shared their service experience, displaying their medals and other momentous from their time in service. I want to thank everyone who has given their service to protect Queen and Country. We’re all very proud of you.”

Havencourt-Care-Home-Stonehaven-Qualification-Success-Dec-2017

14 Dec 2017

The team at Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven came together to celebrate multiple colleague achievements at the home.

Chris Rose and Jamie Nicoll completed their SVQ Level 2, Lavinia Rose completed her SVQ Level 3. Vicky Costello and Iwona Lutchman have completed their Senior Nurse Care Assistant Programme.

SVQs are based on national standards which are drawn up by people from industry, commerce and education. They are badges or benchmarks of competence, so they work as a guarantee that someone who holds an SVQ can do the job the qualification covers.

Senior Nursing Care Assistants take on a higher level of responsibility and provide special resident experiences every day. The role can, and has, inspired many to explore further development pathways into Nursing or Home Management.

Rhona McGregor, Home Manager, said: “I’m very proud of the team here. They’ve worked really hard and thoroughly deserve this recognition. The skills they’ve learnt will further enhance the care they give to the residents here at Havencourt, which from what I can see is an added bonus, as the team here are already doing a fantastic job.”

As part of Oaktree Care Home in Yate’s festive preparations, they wanted to make sure everyone had the opportunity to meet Santa.

Leading the way was resident kitty cat Oakley, although when he met the big man, he seemed less than impressed.

Denise Mackereth, Home Manager, said: “The festive spirit has definitely hit Oaktree. Everyone, except Oakley, was excited to see our inflatable Santa. It definitely got us in the mood to see the real thing. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Oaktree.”
