Enjoying the last of the summer sunshine


We had a great week last week enjoying some amazing sunny weather. Residents at West Farm had such a lovely and relaxing time in our garden, safely soaking up the sun, enjoying conversation and of course a hot sunny day wouldn’t be the same without a trip to the ice cream van man!

Zahra Karimi at West Farm Care Centre said “Our resident chef whipped up a delicious BBQ which residents thoroughly enjoyed and then when we heard the ice cream van man we couldn’t wait to enjoy a Mr Whippy!

“The sun and warm weather really does make a difference to how people are feeling and it’s clear from the wide smiles just how relaxed and content our residents were. It was lovely to see them socialising, enjoy a bite to eat and an ice cream. The best things in life really are free.”

What people are saying

  • "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."
