At Craig Healthcare, one thing is for sure, we all enjoy a Christmas party! Each of our homes has enjoyed a festive-themed party this year with local performers visiting to make them extra special. At Cramlington House this year, local singer John Doonan came to entertain residents for the afternoon singing some of the best Christmas classics there ever was. He put on a magnificent show for residents who really enjoyed the entertainment. At Holywell House Care Centre, Alfie Dobson visited and put on a raucous performance that was extremely well received by residents. Alfie and John sang so many Christmas song classics from Cliff Richard, Slade, Wham, Bing Crosby & many more. There wasn’t an empty seat in the place – so many residents joined in the festivities and it was so lovely to see!
Live entertainment plays an important part in the care we provide at Craig Healthcare as our residents get so much out of it. They physically, mentally and socially engage in such performances and it’s a total joy to watch. There are huge benefits of live performances and residents are more relaxed and content following such occasions. Thank you to the performers who ensured our residents had a Christmas party to remember – we massively appreciate your talents and support!
"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."
