“Cannot speak highly enough of Oakdene. The staff are excellent. Nothing is too much trouble.
Mum has settled really well and loves getting involved in games etc. Always out – more than me! Brilliant now – set up the dining room with breakfast bar – like a hotel – promotes independence for everyone.
Back to the old days of Mum making me tea!.”
To celebrate Father’s Day yesterday, We invited friends and families to join us for a barbecue to celebrate all the Dads of Riversway.
We played lots of music that we sang along to followed by a few games of higher or lower with the big cards.
Everyone had a wonderful Day.
All the dads at Riversway got a lovely Dad cup with a bar of chocolate and a packet of sweets wrapped in clear paper tied in a bow as a special gift from everyone in the home.
Clarence HouseWe enjoyed a spot of baking, making some mini fairy cakes. They were very nice, we enjoyed them with a good cuppa!
“First impressions count and for us, it was excellent. We were given early access to his room prior to admission to ensure familiar surroundings upon his arrival from the Hospice.
The nursing element of his care is very professional and of a high standard whilst not being too intrusive.
Baron’s Park does everything that it says and goes above and beyond for our loved one and for the family.
We as a whole family feel very reassured that he is in safe hands.”
Clarence HouseWe had a lovely time at the cinema. Kinema in the Woods is a unique place, the screen uses a rear projector from behind it rather than from behind us giving a very traditional feel. We loved it there!
OakdeneWe had a wonderful time at the Mansfield Carnival on Saturday. There was so much going on, with colourful performers parading around the town and live music being performed on stage. Everyone had a great time, we even joined in with a bit of street dancing.
We made sausage rolls whilst enjoying singing along to some music.
Once the rolls were finished, we added some Happy Father’s Day flags and then enjoyed them with a cuppa! We had a really fun afternoon.
“Netherlands care home has given a very homely environment and safe one. No one could ask for more.”
Mill HouseYesterday we said a fond farewell to Claudio, our wonderful manager. The team had a little get-together so they could have the chance to say goodbye and to thank Claudio for everything he has done! #GoodBye, Cluadio, you will be missed!
RiverswayDuring “Baking with Lisa” we made delicious Tiffin. We had tea and tiffin with a good singalong after we had finished! It was a very fun afternoon.
