Residents at Cramlington House had a lovely trip to Azure Garden Centre last week!
As well as enjoying a lovely cuppa and some cake, the residents absolutely loved looking around Azure’s renowned Christmas shop with its glistening and glittery Christmas decorations, trees and lights. They responded really well to the festive delights, especially with all of the colours and effects.
The highlight of the morning, of course, was meeting Azure’s reindeers, which brought a huge smile to faces and created a lot of interaction with all the excitement of being able to see and stroke Rudolph and his friends!
Socialising in the local community is so important to our residents, and our weekly activities programme are developed with this priority in mind. To truly provide first class care, there needs to be a big focus on activities away from the home, as it really does provide amazing benefits to those in residential and dementia care, which is why our out of care home activities are a key element of our care plans for residents.
"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."
