Summer Fun at Gotton Manor

Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton recently held their Summer Fete. Both team members and residents worked together to arrange the day. The home was inundated with donations and volunteers from the local community to contribute to the fete.

The team arranged various activities throughout the day for residents and visitors to enjoy. Brave members of the team volunteered to go in the stocks for a soaking with wet sponges which was great entertainment for all. A magician attended and wowed crowds with his tricks and impressive balloon animals for the children.

There was a refreshment stall with cream tea, strawberries and cream and ice lollies for everyone to enjoy. A BBQ was also available selling burgers and hot dogs which were provided by a local butcher as a donation for the fete. To add to the day, there were a number of other stalls including local church members selling homemade jam to help raise funds for Gotton Manor residents social funds. Friends of the home also donated gifts and prizes to be used in the raffle and tombola.

“I’m so proud of the home for holding such a fun day. It ran smoothly and was great entertainment for all that attended. We are so grateful for all the help and kind donations we received from people in the local community. Overall, we managed to raise over £600 which will go towards the residents fund. I can’t wait to arrange next year!” said Patricia Coiley, Home Manager.

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.

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.”
