We’ve had a very exciting week this week at Holywell House! We organised a very special treat for residents who enjoyed a pantomime provided by North East Producers.
Every year we enlist the help of the hugely talented performers at North East Producers to put on a show-stopping Christmas panto for our residents and they never disappoint! This year the pantomime was Alice in Wonderful which was wonderfully received by residents.
Natalie Dawson, our administrative assistant at Holywell House, said: “Wow, what a performance! The panto was amazing and it was great to see how engaged residents were. They were singing and clapping along, following the storyline and they really enjoyed themselves. It was lovely to see them all happy and relaxed in each other’s company and entertained by the performance. Live performances provide great mental and social health benefits to our residents. They get a lot from them and afterwards often engage in conversation about the show and are feeling content after an enjoyable time.”
"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."
