Happy New Year

Happy new year! well lets hope so!!

Yesterday all of our residents recieved their first vaccination, and most of the staff as well, so the future looks promising! Visiting in a pod is not the best thing to do, but with vaccinations and the Lateral Flow devices it can only get better!!

Christmas was lovely, we had lots of visitors to the pod, and made the day really special for the residents, and as usual the food was amazing!! I would say that I was cook!! But truly it was lovely and everyone had fun and we have the photos to prove it! I would like to say an enormous thank you to all the staff and famillies who helped to make it great and a big thank you for all the lovely chocolates and presents! Slimming world here we come!

I really hope that 2021 brings better times for all of us, it has been such a difficult year for everyone wether working in this industry or others, my thanks go out to all the local businesses who have kept us in food, drink  medication and all the staff working in them. You have been amazing.

Stay safe/stay well.

Here we go!

October is here and the heating is on! We are having a lovely time watching the changing colours in the garden and the squirrels running along the fence. It has been really hard with the dreaded covid but we havent gone back into lockdown thank goodness, family visits are so very important to the wellbeing of our residents and we are hoping we will not have to close, but it depends how the virus spreads in the winter months.
We are all keeping busy, we are now having the Hairdresser in weekly and have added her to our weekly covid testing to ensure we are safe, we are also the only home she does now which is great. The Chiropodist is able to visit as well as we have set up safe conditions and full PPE for her.
We are still not having any entertainers in but Joan is still playing the keyboard and we are attempting to sing along with her!!
We might have to produce our own Christma Panto which will be challenging!
Facetime, and whatsapp are all still being used so we are keeping in touch.
Take care everyone and stay safe.
