We invite you to come and take a look at our warm welcoming care home,

beside the Erewash Canal.

A Platinum wedding Anniversary is celebrated on our National Care Home Day with a special exclusive lunch planned for our  couple (70 Years) Joan and Cyril, and later tea with all their friends at Canal Vue and the popular entertainer, Banjo Man (at 2pm.) and a visit from the Mayor.

 

Residents get busy as flower arranging involves preparing and selecting - the ladies really concentrtate and are pleased with their productivity and gentleman too.

Managing Director of Eastgate Care, Janine Morgan said ‘Friendship at our care homes is one of the key elements that enables us to develop relationships and work together as a team and as friends and carers of our residents. Friendship is the theme for this year’s National Care Home Day, it is good to emphasise the importance of this part of care, to acknowledge the work of care homes throughout the UK and the dedication of staff offering their special support. Our support of the Spondon Dynamos highlights how intergenerational rapport can bring benefits all round’

Say it With Flowers & Priory School Children did! - Visiting Alexandra House

What a lovely Friday treat when children from Priory School came to share their flowers with us;

Red tulips were very popular with the lady residents and Nora is positively glowing with this gift.

 

The children did enjoy visiting us again and will be back to sing some songs next term after their summer musical production.

Even the gents can enjoy flowers and this was a lovely bouquet, presented by the children after a special mass at the local church.

Priory school visited us previously bringing flowers, they know what joy they can bring!

Activities Coordinator Debbie, who arranged the visit said

What a treat this was and our home is filled with colour and fragrance..........lucky us. Our great community links with the local schools are priceless.'

'I especially love seeing the old and young together and the joy of giving and sharing is captured so well on this picture of the ‘flower’ visit.' said the care home manager.

Even this lady resident who wasnt able to get to the lounge was able to appreciate the flowers (almost disappearing behind them) i can see her smiling and her visitor is too.

We look forward to the next visit by Priory School and thank them for coming to share their flowers with us at Alexandra House.

Hucknall British Legion share News and Weapons

RBL Hucknall came and entertained & informed our residents:-

The Royal British Legion gentleman on their annual visit and chat, plus war memorabilia.

Derek seems keen on the firearms - not loaded!

Eileen and Derek enjoy learning about how poppies are made and other interesting stories.

Eleanor is not pointing the gun at her head, merely checking it for weight, she is doing well holding it up, they are surprisingly heavy & of course a cup of tea at the ready!

Thanks to our visitors from RBL Hucknall for sharing their knowledge and making it lively and different for our residents at Alexandra House.

Eastwood Easter Bonnets at Alexandra House

They like dressing up and having 'proper tea' and also some music ......

Eleanor, our oldest resident (102 years) at Alexandra House, is enjoying wearing her Easter Bonnet, which she made herself. She had good training as she was in service to royalty. 

Other ladies like to have tea in style wearing their bonnets....

Eileen and George Hands also like getting the China out  and having proper tea, which includes chocolate eclairs!

And of course a little music accompaniment, resident Norah plays for the other resident and they are able to sing along to 'red red robin' and 'easter bonnets' 

Music is a frequent occurence here, as Stewart comes along monthly, to play and the residents enjoy the jolly atmosphere he creates with his playing.

First Sponsorship - Eastgate and the Spondon Dynamos

Eastgate's first venture into football:

We are pleased to announce our first foray into the world of football sponsorship .......... by offering support to the Spondon Dynamos.

Canal Vue's Zoe Truemans son, Oakley, plays for this super squad of under 10's.

Pictured Zoe - middle with her co-workers at Canal Vue. Zoe loves her work caring for the residents at Canal Vue and was recently been promoted to Unit Manager.

Oakley is 'on the ball' with his team mates who play in the Derby junior league, soon to be Under 11's. 

The Dynamo's play at the Racecourse in Chaddesden Derby and have had a winning run of games. They are lucky to have both Coach, Paul Kirk and Assitant Coach, Mark Bull to direct them.

We look forward to updating you when the new kit arrives complete with the Eastgate Logo 

'it is good to be able to help the youngsters in this way and the oldsters at Canal Vue would love them to visit sometime' said Managing Director Janine Morgan

We wish the Dynamos all the best in their forthcoming semi final - on the 30th April.

Getting Crafty at Melbourne House - Aspley

Residents show just how creative they can be:

Activity Coordinator Trayce Pullen got organised with lots of materials, wool, pictures, cut outs, etc to stimulate the residents on their creative day.

 

Our ladies below, show that concentration is key when dealing with wool!

This lady shows how she can master this delicate operation, which looks very involved - we would love to know what the outcome is!

These psychedelic flowers resulted from some of the creativity.  It's good to have a bright finished output like this.


 

Another artistic activity involved carefully painting in stencils for a Cinderella dress.

The Cinderella Dress is to be displayed in a glass case at Nottingham train station.

Has anyone seen it?

Once again concentration and accuracy is required.

Melbourne House - A place called home to many and now a creative centre in Aspley!

After their artistic afternoon in, it is rewarding to get out and go to an afternoon Tea Dance. Pauline and Jean  enjoy the change of scene and some tea too.
