Christmas is coming!

Now that it’s November we are so excited to finally be able to talk about Christmas and do lots of Christmas- related activities!

Our first Christmas-themed activity was at our local garden centre and it did not disappoint! We enjoyed a lovely cuppa and slice of cake and perused the centre, admiring all of the amazing Christmas decorations.

Kim Stubbs, our activity manager at Cramlington House, said: “We were so excited to visit iur local garden centre as we kicked off our Christmas celebrations in style! The decorations look fab, and we enjoyed looking at all the Christmas baubles and lights too. The residents really enjoyed their trip to the garden centre which provided a great opportunity to socialise with the wider public and get into the Christmas spirit. The decorations are great for sensory stimulation and also help to evoke memories about Christmas and what it means to them. It was such a lovely afternoon.”


What people are saying

  • "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."
