Bulwell Market Outing for Park House Residents

Activities Coordinator Karen Law and Carers from Park House, decide that a visit to Bulwell Central is a good way to enjoy the autumn colours;

...............& they could be right, as residents enjoy the scenery around the river Lean and feed the ducks, before going on to the market.

Pauline and Ethel like to do a bit of 'looking around' in town at the market

.

The girls have worked up a thirst..........and get refreshed in Weatherspoons, Dorothy with daughter Carol, & Pauline.

These girls too; Stacey, her Mum and resident Ethel, sociably participating in the pub scene.

Head of Residential Care, Kirsty Greet has a laugh with resident Cliff.

Organiser Karen enters into the spirit of the outing as Ida clutches her hot chocolate......

 'Its good to get our residents out into the local community, they can see whats happening and they can feel part of Bulwell, where many of them grew up. We are so close to town that we can make the most of it'  said the Care Home Manager at Park House

Alexandra House Pay their Respects to Home Residents

Two of our long-time residents parted from us at Alexandra House and we like to mark their passing, as they were both very much part of our family here;

Pat Gordon was raised in India, with her two sisters and liked to sit on the bench at Alexandra House and she became known as 'the Receptionist', she was a real character and liked to participate in activities with us.

Staff; Debra Bonser and Nurse Amanda were pleased to be able to attend the funeral in Aspley, on behalf of all the staff.

Pictured Pat with her family visitors, daughter and son, visiting from France earlier in the year.

The family mentioned how wonderful our home was and couldn't praise the staff enough for their care of Pat.

Pat pictured earlier in the year having enjoyed the entertainment of singer Amy, when she visited Alexandra House.

Activities Coordinator - Debbie Bonser, was able to attend the funeral of resident Violet, who was with us at Alexandra House for four years. 

Staff from Alex were mentioned for the amazing care that they were able to give Violet during her time with us.

 

Recent thanks were received from Keith Worgans family;

Thank you for all the excellent care and attention you gave Dad during his time with you. You saw him for the person he was and ensured he was treated with dignity and respect.

Pen Pals from Canal Vue, Communicate with Park House

Given inspiration from Activities Coordinator Louise Chadwick and help from their carers, our lady residents took to letter writing............. to their counterparts at Park House. Meet the letter writers;

Carer, Jemma Weston assists resident Betty with her letter to residents at Park House. They  share their stories of pastimes and things they like to do currenty at their care home Canal Vue, 

Betty Dooley always has a good laugh and really enjoys singing she used to play the organ so often we get the organ out for her to play.

Marjorie is fond of a game or two and is a dab hand at dominos and likes to join in the many activities.
Nancy likes to enjoy the view out across the canal, she looks nice and relaxed here, but she also loves to sing and dance and she has a lovely voice - a good thing to tell others about. 

The chaps aren't much into letter writing so get on with their chair based exercises, but maybe Louise will manage to enlist them at some stage?

 

We're looking forward to receiving reply from Park House, sometime soon.......

In the meantime, there's always something to see and do at Canal Vue!
