Welcome to a week at PrimeLife!

Tuesday 6th April

Holmes Court in Leicester

We wanted to share this brilliant 5 star review that Holmes Court in Leicester received on www.carehome.co.uk! A huge shout-out to the staff team there for their amazing work ??

“My mum went into Holmes court in June 2020 with Alzheimer’s. The staff are kind caring and attentive. She is well looked after always looks clean and tidy and is more than well-fed. During covid, the team have gone out of their way to make sure we have always had contact either via video call or the pod outside and now the visits inside all covid rules have been followed making sure the safety of the residents and staff. I would have no doubt recommending the home, my mum is happy here and safe and being looked after I wouldn’t wish for her to be anywhere else.”

Riversway Care Home in Bristol 

“Lilly loves the new teddy we got for her. She’s going to name her Mary, because that’s her best friend’s name ?”

Barons Park in Kirby Muxloe 

“Primelife is supporting the Government’s vaccination programme.

Maisie Biggs who has worked at Barons Park as a Care Assistant, had the first dose of the vaccine at the home last week. Prior to receiving it, she was really anxious. When asked afterward how she was feeling about the process, she said, “Honestly, just do it. It’s worth it for the peace of mind. I was worried before, but they made me feel better and it was easy.”

Demi Lee, a care assistant who joined the team at the beginning of March, was offered the first dose of the vaccination last week. Demi jumped at the chance and was really enthusiastic about the process! She said “it’s simple, just get it. Honestly, the only concern I had was that it would hurt. I wasn’t worried about anything felt very well informed.”

Grace Marongwe has been a nurse at Barons Park for 6 years, and this week she received her second dose of the COVID-19 vaccination. She was nervous and shared that ironically, even though she is a nurse, she hates needles! When asked if she had any concerns regarding the vaccine and she told us, “No, I am confident that the vaccination will keep us and our residents safe.”
