Sandra and Karen

To Eves and all the staff

We anted to write to express our heart felt gratitude for the excellent care and kindness shown to Mum during her time spent at The White House. it was clear to see that she was happy and comfortable in your care and we believe that her last 2 years were the best they could have been given her medical conditions.

We only ever wanted the best for our mum and thankfully you gave your best care to her.

Each and every one of you deserves a medal.

Kind regards

Sandra and Karen

Telehealth Service to be withdrawn.

 

We have been using a Telehealth system which was set up to help us care for people living in the home.  For certain people we were able to monitor oxygen levels, test samples and take blood pressure with the support from Telehealth. This enabled us to get a medical help for our residents quickly.

Unfortunately due to health cuts in the National Health Service this has now been withdrawn.

We are very disappointed that this service is to be withdrawn. We hope to keep some of the equipment so we can take readings and inform GP’s with this information to help get treatment quickly.    Eves & Mel

Hopefully we will enjoy the garden this month.  The tubs have been planted up and we have sweet peas and some other varieties.  We need to make sure they have water during the dry days.

Movie Nights – these will happen but not pre-arranged.

Quiz nights – not pre-arranged.

Train trip – will arrange when we know it’s going to be a nice day.

Picnic at the woods – will arrange when we know it’s going to be warm down at Cardinham woods.

Dairy Land to see the animals – I am waiting for Age Concern to come back with some dates for the bus.

Owl sanctuary – we are again waiting for the Age concern bus as it is a larger bus so will cost less per person.

Ann – is our volunteer, she helps with hospital & Doctors appointments.  The car is insured for people to travel with her.

Rodney – is our volunteer, he works in the kitchen and prepares the homemade soups for us.  He then helps with the teas and coffees in the morning.

Julie – is our volunteer she comes in to the laundry and helps to iron all our sheets and put away the clothes.

We really appreciate their help and time that they give to help us with everything we do in the home; they are valued members of our team and always have time for a chat.

We have two people on placement from College and University Joanie and Amy.  They have to do so many hours in a care environment, so we offer this to help them gain experience.

We have got the blue bells in the garden and the magnolia in the bottom garden is in bloom.  Rodney is feeding the birds for us so you can see them on the bird tables.
