Oh, hasn’t the weather been so wonderful?! We’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Safely with our sunscreen and sun hats we’ve enjoyed plenty of sunshine days including an afternoon well spent playing some games in our beautiful garden this week.
The games provide a great physical and mental activity for residents, encouraging them to get active, socialise and focus on the task in hand.
Kim Stubbs, our activities manager at Cramlington House said: “We played various ball games much to the delight of residents who thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. They were really engaged, and it was clear the activity was having a really positive impact on their wellbeing as there were lots of smiles and laughter ringing around the home for the rest of the day! It’s honestly been so nice recently weather wise and we have really made the most of it, taking full advantage of our beautiful garden. Playing games is important for cognitive development too as it improves dexterity, concentration skills and attention to detail. Such great fun was had – here’s to a long hot summer!”
"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."
