Work Experience

Each year we are happy to accommodate Steyning Grammar School request for work experience placements for students looking to gain experience of the Care sector.

This year we welcomed Chris and Charlie who were brilliant assisting our residents and staff in the communal areas.

Both Chris and Charlie spent time talking to the residents and hearing about their experiences and were keen to learn more about caring.

Charlie – “I chose to learn about care to gain skills to help others who may struggle with day to day tasks”

Chris – “In the future I would like to care and help younger people with mental health issues. Learning to care for a wide variety of people with different needs will provide good experience. Many of my close family already work in care.”

Everyone at Valerie Manor wishes them both all the best for the future and thank you for all your help.

Welcome Sarah

We are very pleased to introduce Sarah who has recently joined our wonderful team as a Care Assistant.

” I have worked in the Community as a Healthcare assistant which I really enjoyed.

I am really looking forward to joining Valerie Manor as I want to be able to spend more quality time with the residents that I care for. I have heard so many amazing things about this lovely Care Home.”

High Tea anyone

Our residents really enjoy the regular High Tea & Cheese & Wine evenings which are held on alternate weeks.

This weeks High Tea was no exception and as you can see from the pictures Preeda and Steve produced another fine service!

The Care staff and residents enjoyed listening to music and chatting after the meal especially as the sun was shinning long into the evening.

Thank you as ever to all our amazing staff.

Tea Party at Valerie Manor

Our residents have always enjoyed visiting our friends at St Peter’s Church for the monthly afternoon tea party but this month we asked them to join us.

Preeda and Steve provided cakes and refreshments to the full conservatory who were very appreciative.

Thank you to everyone for making the afternoon tea party so lovely.

See you all again next month at the Gladys Beven Hall.
