Every year, the Alzheimer’s Society hosts a national ‘Elf Day’ where anyone can get involved to raise money for dementia and care for those living with the condition.
The staff and residents at West Farm really got behind the cause and many team members came to work dressed as elves and what amazing elves they were!
On the day, a stall was organised selling some tasty treats as well as the opportunity to take part in a tombola; of which all proceeds were donated to the Alzheimer’s Society. Alongside this, staff and residents took part in a range of Christmas themed games.
Ashley White, a unit manager at West Farm who organised the day, said “What a fab time we all had dressed up as elves for the day!
“It was a wonderful effort from all involved and everyone really got into the spirit of the occasion. We even had a few naughty elves running around getting up to no good and squirting staff with cream every now and then which the residents found extremely amusing!”
Great support for a great cause; well done West Farm elves! Lots of fun was had and it was great to hear laughter ringing around our home.
"I am very pleased with how my mother has settled in and generally how supportive and caring the staff are. This has given us peace of mind knowing that she is safe & well looked after. Thank you."
"Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."
"From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "
"This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "
"All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
