Ten Tors Challenge

Two teams of 4 people from the White House are in training to take on the Ten Tors Challenge - a 13 mile walk across tough moorland terrain.

We will be fundraising to improve the resident's garden at The White House - adding to the variety of plants and trees, and providing new seating so that everyone can enjoy the calm of being outdoors. The garden is such an important space for everyone's well-being, and we will be discussing the project at the next residents meeting to make sure everyone has input into what we plant and grow.

Lovely compliment for the White House

We were thrilled to receive this recent feedback from a family member:

" I would like to extend a massive thanks to everyone at The White House for looking after my Mum through her convalescence in the midst of the pandemic.  The White House was recommended to us by my Mum's CPN and it was everything she promised.  Mum was surrounded by caring, generous, kind and warm hearted souls who made her feel welcome and supported through a really, really tough time.  The White House is in a pretty setting with birds and trees and a lovely lawn.  It's easy to get to, and Mum had the right balance of privacy and social interaction to progress.  She is back home and doing really well.  I can confidently say that during her time at The White House she progressed dramatically.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The White House to anyone - for short, medium or long term care.  Thanks to everyone for supporting us so well."

Christmas is coming

We really enjoyed putting up the Christmas tree at the White House this week - there was lots of fun and laughing as everyone gave directions for where to place the decorations! We were all getting into the Festive spirit as mince pies were served and requests were taken for the Christmas playlist. It's so lovely seeing the tree in the lounge and the lights reflecting in the window.
