All our homes will be receiving lots of messages and best wishes today as we celebrate Father’s Day. We will be making sure that all the dads we are caring for have an extra special day and are spoilt rotten! How will you be celebrating your Dad’s special day?
Many of our residents were saddened today to hear of the death of Dame Vera Lynn. Whilst she undoubtedly lived an amazing and long life which deserves to be celebrated it is always sad when a national icon passes.
For so many of our residents, across all our homes, she will be remembered as someone who was a shining light during a time of crisis. She became the nation’s sweetheart over three-quarters of a century ago during the Second World War and has remained in many people’s hearts ever since.
Today our residents would like to pay tribute to her and to thank her for all she has done for their spirits over many years, giving not only enjoyment but also hope to so many.
NOS’s guide on being kind is an essential read for all parents and children using the internet. It suggests disassociating yourself from pack mentality, learning self-empathy and how to offer help online.

The government is asking people who have a medical condition that makes them extremely vulnerable to coronavirus to register for help during the current situation. For example, you’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.You can register yourself, or on behalf of someone else.
We would urge all people who feel they may fall into the category of extremely vulnerable to register on the government site.

Recently our lovely resident Andrew Shepherd celebrated his 60th Birthday.
He had a big pile of presents and we made him a scrummy cake with lots of candles to blow out.
Andrew had great fun opening all his presents and would like to thank everyone who gave him presents, was involved in the cake making, and especially those who joined in a fab rendition of Happy Birthday for him.
Happy Birthday Andrew!
We held a Spooky event at Churchview last week when staff, children, residents and their families attended a lovely Halloween Party at the home. The children really enjoyed making hime made slime, face painting and the trick or treat board.
We had a great spooky BBQ with some scary looking cakes that looked like eye balls and spiders – yummy!
A great day and enjoyed by everyone – roll on next year.
