Canal Vue Go French

Activities with a difference occured, when Activities Co-ordinator Megan White decided to celebrate Bastille Day with the residents at Canal Vue;

 

Inevitably a French affair requires food! Cook excelled himself and put on a great spread for this special occasion.

 

Megan didnt like the idea of eating the snails so decided to race them instead - perhaps something we could introduce to the French!

I wonder who won?

Theres always lots of different activities for the residents and staff to enjoy - variety is the spice of life! Staff and residents don their PJ's earlier in the year.

 

 

A little Vin to accompany the cheese on this occasion doesnt go amiss. Care home manager Cathy Brown and resident view the spread with anticipation on this shared occasion.

Well Received at Park House - Sparky Revived

 

Hello Helen -

After visiting Mary yesterday we have noticed a marked improvement in the atmosphere and general ambience of Park House over the last couple of weeks. The staff seem much more at ease and seem to be now enjoying their work. The placing of a nurse's station in the centre of the main lounge is a great idea as it means that there is always a member of staff present, which has not been the case over the last few months.

We have also noticed that there are 2 new residents in the corner of the lounge (the budgies). This is also a great idea as we think it has a calming effect on the residents and We are sure that they appreciate this. Sparky was sadly missed.

We have also noticed that tea/coffee is now given mid morning and mid afternoon as it should be and also visitors are offered a drink, which again is much appreciated.

We sincerely hope that this good work will continue when the new manager takes up her post.

Thanking you again

Kind regards

Graham and Marion
