Meadow View in AlcesterChooo Chooo! Yesterday we saw the opening of our new train. The inside has been designed to look like a Victorian train carriage, with monitors for windows so the train can appear as though it is moving! Everyone loved it, with one resident stating they feel like they are going on a trip and another saying “my husband would have loved this!”
Riversway in BristolRoger loves classical music, so we took the old fashioned record player around to him to play some of his favourites. Listening to music from a record player just hits differently, and he really enjoyed it!

Meadow View in AlcesterAlong with the new train, we also have had some new decorating across the home.

Peaker Park Care Village in Market HarboroughWell done to Peaker Park Care Village in Market Harborough for receiving this outstanding review on carehome.co.uk! A massive well done to the incredible staff team 👏👏 “When sourcing a care home for a very special loved one, you ultimately rely on reviews. After no support from social services and very little information, we were left with relying on the NHS for recommendations. My Mother-in-Law was evicted from a Dementia specialist unit as they could not cope with her needs. This was a total shock to us as we thought the care home we chose was able to accommodate her, how wrong we were! After several phone calls asking us to come in as they couldn’t cope, we knew something was wrong. We came across Peaker Park and I can honestly say it was the best thing that ever happened. They are the most brilliant team and have a total understanding of a loved one’s needs. They take the time to get to know the real person and listen to the family. All the staff are amazing and have the resident’s needs at heart. The home is spotlessly clean, I cannot fault them. Even though we have now lost our beloved Mum, we know that her care was second to none!.”
Riversway in BristolWe made these beautiful cakes, which we shared out with the home and enjoyed with a nice cup of tea. It was good teamwork, good tea and good cake!
We had a really lovely hymn service, we sang our favourite hymns together and enjoyed some refreshments after! Everyone said they enjoyed the services!
