Good Afternoon,

Well Easter is nearly here, I hope the Easter bunny brings you lots of Chocolate!! or red wine what ever your preference is!!

We have changed some of the beds, so now all residents have electric beds, this makes life a lot more comfortable for both residents and staff, enabling us to move and handle safely.

If you are taking your family mamber out at Easter please can you let us know, so we can ensure they are ready for you.

There are some pink raffle tickets for sale in the hall, please buy some!!!! The prize is a beautiful king size quilt made by 40 members of Island Piecemakers who range in age from 14 – 92 years old! The money for this is for Breast Cancer Care please put the money for the tickets into the Breast cancer collecting box. If you don’t want a raffle ticket, please put a donation in the box XXXXXXXX

On Thursday 2nd April, Troubadour will be coming to do their Easter performance, you are very welcome to come and watch it starts at 2pm.

Please remember we do have a very robust complaints procedure. If you do have any concerns please don’t hesitate to let Karen or Rebecca know.

Happy Easter from Karen, Rebacca and all the staff at Saltmarsh House.

The Daffodils are starting to bloom!

Well spring is on the way, we have some daffodils blooming and Paulette (gardener) is back at work! The fence in the back garden has been completed, and looks very smart, which has pleased George. The staff have completed their Infection Control training, so a big thank you to them for attending as we know it can be difficult, juggling family and work.

Miranda has been in this afternoon playing the saxophone, it was lovely everyone singing along and the sun shinning!

For those of you who are not aware, I have been involved in making a large pink quilt for Breast Cancer Care, raffle tickets are for sale in the hallway, and a poster will be displayed of the quilt  when its finished!! nearly there. Some of the residents have been very interested, and I have been bringing it in in various stages, their encouragement has been very welcome.
