Afternoon Tea Delight

We absolutely love our afternoon tea occasions at Cramlington House! The sessions are a wonderful opportunity for residents to come together and spend some quality time with their families and loved ones.

Sometimes, all we need is a hot cup of tea, a bit of cake or a nice scone and some company with those we love and value and that’s exactly what the afternoon tea sessions are about. There was such a wonderful buzz right around the room and it was lovely to hear all the chatter and laughter.

Activities coordinator Kim Stubbs said: “Afternoon tea is such a beautiful occasion at Cramlington House. The long-lasting impact they have on residents is amazing. They are visibly happier, less anxious and more relaxed after spending some quality one to one time. These occasions play a key role in residents’ ongoing care as regular contact and communication with their family and friends is really important to their quality of life. Thank you to everyone who helps to organise these sessions and to the family members who get involved. We are already looking forward to the next one!”

What people are saying

  • "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."
