We’re getting very excited about Easter at Craig Healthcare!
Residents have been very busy this week with lots of Easter related activities including Spring decorations making, baking and Easter card making.
These activities are great for residents to be involved in because not only do residents find them enjoyable and relaxing, but they fully engage too and concentrate on the task in hand. Baking and making cards are also excellent activities for maintaining fine motor skills which are vital for living as independently as possible. For example, these are the skills that enable us to tie our shoelaces or do up buttons on a shirt.
Donna Sarin, our manager at Holywell House, said: “It’s been wonderful weather this week so we’ve also enjoyed a lot time outdoors on our gorgeous patio.
“The residents have also loved baking some delicious chocolate crispy Easter cakes too as well as making a range of other decorations.
“With relative visits still limited, we’ve been making some lovely Easter cards and decorated them so carefully to give to loved ones. It’s been lovely to see the concentration faces and then wonderful smiles once the crafts have been beautifully completed. We have had such a fun week!”
"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."
