Peaker Park Care Village in Market Harborough

Peaker Park Care Village in Market Harborough received this phenomenal review on carehome.co.uk! A massive well done to the incredible staff team there πŸ‘πŸ‘ “I cannot rate Peaker Park highly enough. Not only is it spotlessly clean with modern rooms and ensuite facilities but the environment is calm and caring. My father settled in very quickly and was very happy there. They offer a variety of stimulating activities from making gingerbread houses and bird feeders to bingo, puzzles and games. During the pandemic, I was constantly kept up to date with photos and news about my dad. When my dad celebrated his 100th birthday, the team arranged a party for his unit and ordered a beautiful cake and decorated the dining room with banners and balloons. The empathy and care the team gave my father in his final days were absolutely amazing and the stories they told me about him made me realise they truly knew him and cared about him. Overall Standard Facilities”

Charnwood Oaks in Shepshed

Charnwood Oaks in Shepshed received this remarkable review on carehome.co.uk! A massive well done to the incredible staff team there πŸ‘πŸ‘ “My dad had recently become a resident in Charnwood Oaks, all the staff are so caring and welcoming. It’s spotless. My dad looks so well since he’s been there. We’re still all new to this and was dreading it, as you hear things about care homes. All the staff have made it so easy for Dad and myself. All I can say is it’s a lovely place and would recommend this home from home, excellent, thank you from Dad and our family.”

All of us here at Riversway are loving this sunny weather.
As it’s been so nice outside today we all decided it would be a brilliant idea to have a bit of lunch in the garden for a change. We had a bit of music on in the background and had lots of laughs and chats with each other. We are looking forward to having lunch in the garden again sometime.

Sunday 20th

 

Chestnut House in Marton

We created a yummy treat for fathers day this year. The staff recycled the covid test boxes by sticking coloured card on them for the residents to then decorated them and filled with sweets! Those without a father created one for another loved one, such as a sister. What a brilliant idea, we are sure the dads will love the sweets!

Happy Father’s Day everyone!   We made these beautiful fathers day slate hearts! They create such an endearing gift for fathers day. And of course, you can not do such amazing work without enjoying a cold beer and cake.
