A Week at Prime Life; 17th May – 23rd May 2021

Monday 17th May

 

The Fieldings in Sutton-in-Ashfield

Primelife is supporting the Government’s vaccination programme.

The Staff and Residents had their 2nd COVID-19 vaccination.

They had some people not keen on needles, they had some who didn’t mind, and they had one that made a silly face. Non the less they all pulled together and worked as a team to get them all vaccinated to help protect one and another.

To book your vaccination use the National Booking System on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or by calling 119.

If you want to know more about the COVID-19 vaccination you can play the Primelife interactive digital game CoronaBee https://games.focusgames.co.uk/CoronaBeePrimeLife/game/ or go to www.nhs.uk to find out more.

Tuesday 18th May

Fun on the bus time! ? Some of the residents went on a bus tour of Warwickshire.

This bus wasn’t stopping but they all enjoyed the wonderful tour of Stratford Upon Avon and the surrounding area.

Take a look at these delicious cheese and ham pasties we made. We decided to enjoy them with a nice cuppa and some old music, which we had playing in the background! It was a very nice, relaxing, afternoon.

 

Wednesday 19th May

 

Phoenix Park Care Village in Scunthorpe

Another well done to Phoenix Park Care Village in Scunthorpe for this amazing review they received on carehome.co.uk! ??   “Soon my wife, a lifelong Glasgow Rangers fan will have been at Hilltop for 3 years. Throughout her stay my wife has been safe, better looked after than any through any care I could provide at home, nurtured emotionally, physically and yes, as I look back, with probably every essential care need exceeded in its application. Where I failed to meet my wife’s care needs, Hilltop has succeeded. I had no intention of singling any individuals out either but the empathetic Manager especially and Unit 2 Care Team Leader deserve this. Thank you all who work within Unit 2, or make its work possible through reception and administration, cleaning, laundry, catering, building maintenance and the other ancillary services. I have in consequence built up an enormous debt – one of gratitude – including that my wife will never know or learn about the Hilltop manager’s unswerving allegiance to Celtic!”

We popped in to see the residents and asked them what they would like from the shops. Everyone got to enjoy a nice little treat of their choosing. We handed out their little gifts from our trolley and everyone was pleased.

 

Lilian and her husband Gwyn celebrated 64 years of marriage on 18th May! Many congratulations to you both.

Everyone had such a fun time!

Brilliant work Edwina and everyone who took part, looks like you all had a lot of fun!

We all sat and enjoyed our Riversway Pub Club, with lots of fun, music, drinks, snacks and laughs, everyone had a brilliant time!

 

Loran House in Hull

A huge well done to Loran House for this lovely review they received on carehome.co.uk! A big shout-out to the incredible staff team there ??   “My mother-in-law has been a resident at Loran House since April 2020 (2 weeks into lockdown). She was admitted at the worst possible time, initially as a temporary resident from hospital so we as a family had no choice/input into the care home chosen. We couldn’t meet staff or see inside the home which, during these unprecedented times, was extremely distressing for us all but finally, after almost a year, I can now visit my mother-in-law weekly inside the home where I have now had the opportunity to meet the friendly staff and, more importantly, the newly appointed manager. It’s been a difficult year for care homes, residents and their families and it is early days in his new role as manager but things are changing for the better already and it’s comforting to finally see my mother-in-law inside the home after such a long time. She constantly tells us how lovely the staff are and how good the food is and plenty of it.”
 

Beechlands in Leicester

Kalwant, one of our residents is attending her brother’s wedding today!

She is “our very own Indian princess”. We hope you have a wonderful day, Kalwant, you look fabulous.

 

Saturday 22nd May

 

Woodville Residential Care Home in Woodville

Woodville Care Home would like to say a massive thank you to Cathy, one of their lovely volunteer who comes in every week to spend time with some of our residents. (Whilst following current guidelines). She has supported some of the residents to make these beautiful wreaths.

 

Riversway in Bristol

We had a lovely afternoon playing bingo, guess the sentences and higher or lower (or play your cards right!). Everyone was a winner as the residents had a raffle ticket each so they got a prize from our raffle, and we all got to enjoy a lovely carrot cake!

 

We made these pom poms flowers in pots, they look lovely! We also got to enjoy cake and a good chat!

 

Meadow View in Alcester 

We received this donation from a lovely lady called Janine!

The dog’s name is Pugh and has brought such joy to one particular resident this Dementia Action Week as it stimulated the dog lover in herself.

You can view a video of the pup in action on our Facebook page!
