Marta’s Blog – April 2021
Hello, and good to catch up with you again.
Well Spring seems to have finally sprung since my last blog, and it’s been great to see so many of our residents enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Our beautiful outdoor spaces have been enjoyed by visitors too, something which has really cheered me and our staff. We won’t forget those long cold dark days of winter, when nobody was allowed to visit due the tight restrictions in place. I know things aren’t back to normal yet, but it has made such a difference to be able to see the smiles on our lovely residents faces when their loved ones come to visit.
The decking areas and surrounds are looking great. It’s easy to underestimate what a difference nature can make to people’s well-
We’ve had a few annual events come and go this last few weeks. In mid-
Easter was enjoyed by all. There was a fair bit of cake making going on, plus a few of our residents creating their own Easter bonnets, which prompted some lovely photos on our Facebook page. As far as internal projects are concerned, we’ve just about completed the refurbishment of the lounge and dining room at Three Corners, with just a few little tweaks to be made. Our residents have already being enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. At Hill House we plan to create a new dining room, so that’s something to look forward to there.
A few social changes came into effect on 12th April. They don’t change too many day-
Finally, and very much a case of last but not least – we had a very special and poignant day last Saturday, with so many of our residents able to watch the funeral of Prince Phillip. It was a day of sadness of course, with all thinking in particular of her majesty The Queen. A number of our residents are of a similar age and can relate to what it’s like to experience 70plus years of marriage. Maybe it was Prince Phillip's sense of humour that helped get them through the trials and tribulations of Royal Family life? Everyone who spoke about him was so positive, not just regarding his dedication to service, but his ability to raise a smile as well.
That’s about all for this month. I look forward to chatting with you again in May.
