Our residents at Cramlington House had a brilliant time celebrating Halloween! This year, residents, staff members and their relatives came together to create an atmosphere brimming with spooks and smiles.
The home was decorated Halloween style with lots of fancy dress on display. Residents loved the occasion with staff and their families joining in, some sporting spooky makeup and hats, contributing to the fun-filled afternoon.
The celebration was packed with activities, including pumpkin carving, apple dunking, a costume contest, and sharing ghost stories too. Laughter echoed around the room, and everyone had a really lovely time.
Kim Stubbs, our activities coordinator at Cramlington House, said: “Halloween here is much more than dress-up and decoration. It’s a magical time that truly brings everyone together, creating a sense of community and belonging. Seeing the smiles on residents’ faces, hearing their laughter – it’s a reminder of the vibrant spirit that lives within these walls. It’s these moments that remind me that carers have the most rewarding and fulfilling job.”
"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."
