Cramlington House residents were treated to a festive pantomime experience with a production of Jack and the Beanstalk by the very talented North East producers. The travelling panto brought the magic of live theatre directly into their living room, captivating the audience with the classic tale of adventure and wonder.
There are many benefits of watching a pantomime for the residents – it’s not just entertainment; it stimulates the mind through storytelling, encourages social interaction, and evokes a sense of nostalgia. It was a great afternoon and the laughter and participation that panto uniquely encourages are wonderful for lifting spirits and enhancing the overall wellbeing of our residents.
Our Activity Coordinator at Cramlington House, Kim Stubbs, said “Seeing the joy on our residents’ faces as they followed Jack’s adventures was truly priceless. The panto provided not only laughter and entertainment but also a cherished opportunity for our residents to connect with their youthful spirits and each other. This special event is just one of the many ways Cramlington House enriches the lives of those in their care.”
"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."
