September

Well, what a summer we have had so far! It has been lovely to be able to get residents outside at every opportunity and it’s been wonderful that yoga has taken place on the lawn on a regular basis.

Over the last few weeks, we have celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary for a couple who live here and also a 59th wedding anniversary for a resident and his wife. Both families enjoyed a celebratory drink, cake and lots of hugs and kisses.

July Update

July has been a very busy month! We’ve seen the completion of the newly decorated dining room; the residents have been very complimentary and more of them are using it now with its lovely café feel to it. We have also seen the installation of the new Spa bath, which as you can imagine has proved very popular.

The next phase of work will take place in the top corridor with the flooring replacement and then the large lounge.

Our Cockerel has two new companions and they have bonded well. Laying the tiniest of eggs as they are miniature bantoms. We will definitely not get an omelette out to of them!

The recent introduction of more regular trips out has proved popular as well. Six residents went to the Three Counties Show, enjoying all that the show has to offer (including the local cider!) and four enjoyed a lovely afternoon of music at Malvern Priory’s Band in the Park.

Our Team have also been busy with a number of them taking a variety of levels of NVQ /QCF courses including amongst many, Emergency First Aid at work.

Congratulations to Sophie who has completed her L3 in Health & Social Care, Stuart who has completed L2 Health & Social Care and Angelina who has done brilliantly to achieve her L5 in Leadership & Management. We are very proud of them all.

Royal Wedding Preparations

As we haven’t received our invite to the royal wedding, we’ve decided to have our own celebrations in the comfort of ‘our’ home. A party is being planned for the 19th May and the screens will all be on to celebrate this wonderful occasion! The service will begin at St George’s Chapel at midday and will be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, The Rt Revd. David Conner. The Most Revd. and Rt Hon. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, will officiate as the couple make their marriage vows. More party details to follow in the May newsletter.

Next month also sees some changes to The Chace Menu, with a selection of meals chosen specifically by the residents so we’re looking forward to hearing your opinions.

As you may have seen the refurbishment of the communal areas has started and we love our new bright entrance hall. Thank you for the lovely feedback so far.

May Newsletter will be published in a few days, so do keep a look out.

 

 

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our residents and their families. What a fabulous surprise to have snow in December, lovely for all our residents to enjoy the snowy garden scenes from the comfort of our warm lounges!

Birthday greetings for January go to Pamela on the 13th, Thomas on the 23rd and Kathleen on the 28th. Wishing you all a fabulous day and we look forward to enjoying some cake with you.

These are our core of activities which often involve 3rd parties and happen on certain dates. However there are a vast number of other contacts which centre around individuals and their needs which are not scheduled but take place at any time. These include such things as housework; perhaps wiping up some plates or helping to fold towels. We also encourage and support residents in looking after our little group of animals, perhaps by preparing their food. There may be shopping trips or a short, local walk. An individual need might also be to share a cup of tea and a chat or to listen to music which might evoke their younger days or happy (or sad) memories. We may need to offer comfort, support and re-assurance at times when people are unhappy or just confused. Help with reading letters or newspapers is also an important way of supporting our residents to keep contact with their families and the wider world. Overall our aim is to promote actively the mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of our residents by providing a stimulating, supportive environment which respects their dignity, listens to their wishes and responds to their needs.
