Marta’s Blog – September  2020

Hi again everyone and thank you for visiting my end of the month blog.  

It’s been another busy month and of course we’ve all been keeping a very close eye on developments with Covid 19. We are proud to have been praised by the CQC for the measures we have put in place. On that note, just a reminder for all visitors to scan the QR Code on entry. It’s a vital part of the track and trace process.  

Once again, I make no apology for mentioning our wonderful staff at Hill House and Three Corners. They continue not only to be professional in their service, but beyond that they keep reinforcing the positive spirit which is so evident at both homes.  

Our general philosophy is quite simple – we want to provide the very best care for our residents. Two key elements to this are our policies on nutrition and activities. On the food front everything here is freshly prepared on the premises by our own team of qualified cooks. Each resident is individually assessed for their dietary needs, and we monitor each and every one to ensure the correct balance in their diet.  

As far as activities are concerned, it’s something we take very seriously. That may not be obvious as we like to have a lot of fun, but behind the smiles and laughs a lot of thought and planning goes into our entertainment and activity programs. It’s that balance of diet and mental stimulation that helps keep our residents on top form. We often hear that we want our children to be ‘the best they can be’, well that applies to our elderly and infirm too.  

This last month we’ve had a wide mix of activities, things as diverse as celebrating Buddy Holly’s birthday with some ice-cream making and decorating our lifts with some beautiful bird artwork. It’s also been fun looking through some old photos of the Brixham area, prompting many a fond memory of times past.  

When the weather has allowed, we’ve been able to enjoy the outside decking area for visits and are so glad that visiting has been able to continue during these challenging times.  

One thing I would like to mention is how much we appreciate the generous feedback we get from families of loved ones who have been with us. It means the world to us to know that the extra effort we make to provide the best possible care has been appreciated by those who matter most.  

Finally, and this is definitely a case of last but not least… how lovely it was for us to celebrate a 100th birthday, with our resident Pearl at Three Corners. Congratulations Pearl. It isn’t just Her Majesty the Queen who wishes you well – we all do!  

Catch up with you all again in a month’s time – Marta.
