Residents at Cramlington House enjoyed a great day last Friday celebrating Burns Night.
Burns Night is celebrated to honour the life of famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns, who was born on January 25th, 1759. The day also celebrates Scottish culture and staff organised a suitably themed day for all to enjoy.
The highlight of the celebrations was definitely a visit from the highland dancers from the Whistler School of Highland Dance that was established by Laura Grayson, All England Champion and judge on The Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing.
The performance was met with a great response from residents with plenty of interaction, singing and swaying along to the very energetic and lively dancing! What such stamina and skills they have, we were super impressed!
The mood among residents was upbeat and jovial long after the dancers left and a topic of conversation among themselves and also visiting relatives over the weekend!
We would definitely enjoy another visit from the dance school, they were a joy to watch.
"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."
