There is so much involved when it comes to providing the right kind of care to our residents. An important element is ensuring we arrange activities that they personally enjoy, that remind them of past memories, encouraging them to reminisce on what they did in their younger years or before they moved into Cramlington House or West Farm.
One such activity that a few residents at Cramlington House have recently discussed is how they used to polish their brass ornaments and house decorative items, as part of their weekly housework duties!
Always on hand to provide activities that the residents benefit from the most, our Cramlington House Wellbeing Champion, Kim Stubbs, organised a fabulous brass polishing activity for those residents who talked fondly of doing it as she knew how much they would enjoy it. As you can see from the photos, residents were really involved in the activity. Kim even sourced some famous brass polish, Brasso!
"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."
