Our recent fair at West Farm proved to be a big hit among residents, their relatives, staff and members of the local community with lots of people attending.
We had lots going on – food stalls, fun and games and some great prizes for the raffle and tombola that staff kindly organised – and managed to raise an impressive £651!
Every penny raised has been donated to the residents’ fund which is used to pay for outings and experiences for our residents, that form a key part of their wellbeing plans.
Trish Giles, our Manager at West Farm said: “A huge thank you to each and every one of you that came down to our fair, what a fabulous afternoon we had. Residents, their families and staff members really enjoyed the day making the most of the delicious food that was on offer as well as numerous other bric – a – brac stalls. It was lovely to see our residents relax in the company of their loved ones and members of the local community. Well done to everyone who donated too, it was wonderful to raise over £600!”
There was lots of mingling, chatting and everyone got really involved in everything going on at the fair, it really was a lovely day enjoyed by all.
Trish added: “Remaining integrated into their local community is so important to the wellbeing of our residents and events such as our fair are really helpful in enabling this. We really appreciate the local community’s support too; the funds are used to pay for local community activities including trips outs and visits to local social clubs and centres as well as for visits from specialists who provide specific expertise in the field of wellbeing. It means so much to us and our residents and we really appreciate it.”
"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."
