Holywell House recently received an extra special visit recently from Jess McConnell, a local entertainer who lit up the entire room at Holywell!
Jess is a well-known singing impersonator and comedian, and the residents absolutely loved him! He put on a great show, singing lots of songs our residents are familiar with. Listening and singing along to songs and music residents can readily identify with is really important to their cognitive development, especially for those residents living with dementia. This is because it helps to connect with old memories and create new memories at the same time. There was so much emotion in the room and it was wonderful to see residents so engaged and thoroughly enjoying themselves alongside their relatives who we also invited in to see Jess and spend time some quality time with their loved ones.
"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."
