Next Saturday, some of our care teams from Cramlington House and West Farm Care Centre are taking part in the North East Memory Walk by The Alzheimer’s Society!
There are many residents who live at Cramlington House and West Farm that are living with dementia and it’s a condition very close to our hearts as we care for those with dementia as well as offering support to their loved ones too.
Taking place in the lovely Bents Exhibition Park in South Shields, it’s a great event, with a fab atmosphere, that attracts a huge crowd and lots of participants too – we’re really looking forward to it and raising money for such a fabulous cause!
Every penny we raise from the walk will change the lives of people affected by dementia – now and in the future – so it’s an extremely important event for residents, their families and staff members too.
So, whatever the weather, we plan to be well fuelled and well kitted out in walking boots to complete the walk, and back to Cramlington House enjoy a lovely spread courtesy of the MD for our amazing efforts!
"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."
