The Olympic Games left Tokyo and came to our Cramlington House home recently and what a day it was!
Staff organised a whole day of fun and games with residents participating in a number of activities, designed to have a positive impact on their physical and mental wellbeing. From archery and shot put to gymnastics and a new sport that we introduced, hula hooping, residents along with their carers had a wonderful time.
Kim Stubbs, our activities manager at Cramlington House, said: “We had such an enjoyable afternoon, and it was great to see residents so engaged in the activities. Not only did such a session get residents moving and active, but it was also great for their cognitive development too, the interaction, the socialization, the use of their concentration and organisational skills. Residents really enjoyed trying out all the different types of sports we put on. The hula hoop activity and gymnastics ribbon display were especially wonderful! And got such a great reaction from all involved.”
"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."
