Our residents at Cramlington House enjoyed a fun filled Halloween themed day out recently at Whitehouse Farm.
The special Halloween party was organised and hosted by Hays Days, a lovely community group that aims to bring together elderly people to take part in group-based activities that encourages interaction and socialisation with others, to reduce loneliness and isolation.
Talking about the day, our General Manager, Loraine Brunton, said: “We are had a really great time, enjoying a sing along and dance, some lovely lunch and visiting and petting some of the gorgeous farm animals. Ensuring residents are involved and connected to their local community is one of our main priorities. In my experience, it’s vital that we provide a range of settings to promote the wellbeing of our residents whether that’s physical, mental, social, or emotional. Thanks to everyone who was involved in organising our trip both at Cramlington House and Hays Days, the residents had so much fun and had a lot of stories to tell once they were back home!”

"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."
