We recently organised a lovely cream tea afternoon for residents at West Farm Care Centre to give them a chance to spend some quality time with staff and each other, relax and enjoy some delicious homemade scones and sandwiches by our amazing resident chef.
Residents really look forward to our cream tea afternoons as they provide a quiet time in the day to catch up with one another over a nice cuppa and a sweet or savoury treat. They’re able to wind down, discuss the latest goings-on whether that’s with their families at home or what’s happening in the news.
Zahra Karimi at West Farm said: “Organising formal social occasions form an important part of the care we provide at Craig Healthcare as they offer the perfect opportunity for residents to come together and relax, unwind and partake in some feel-good conversation (as well as some delicious scones and tea) that’s good for the soul. From the content demeanours around the room and lovely smiles, we know they’re a favourite with residents who enjoy the one-to-one time with each other or with a carer. It really is good to talk and this is what our cream tea afternoons are all about. We’re already looking forward to the next one!”
"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."
