Well it has been a very busy month. We have had our Investors in People review, which went really well, and we have achivied a lot more standards than required which is amazing, so a big thank you to the staff who had to attend interviews with the assessor. We have also had Vision Call in to test the sight of all our residents. Some of the staff attended Diabetes training with Southern Health NHS. Thank you very much to the trainer. We also had Valentines day which we celebrated with chocolate hearts on the breakfast trays, flowers and a lovely cake made by Sonny. Very exciting it’s pancake day tomorrow – yummy!
