Website & Brochure Update

 

You may recall that we are going to update our marketing material and last week we took photographs of the Valerie Manor, staff, residents and their visitors.

A huge thank you to everyone who was present on the day and also took part in the photos, it was so nice that we now have so many lovely pictures that we can use on our website and our brochures.

Training

You may be aware that we are very lucky to have Michele & Nick Stubbs provide our mandatory training here at the Home.

Nick visited recently for the first of this years Fire Training sessions which as always was informative but also enjoyable. Nick understands the ‘uniqueness’ of the 17th Century Grade II listed part of the home and has been heavily involved in reviewing our Fire plan on a regular basis.

Whilst the subject of Fire prevention is a very serious matter Nick  engages everyone to ensure ALL staff are clear on their responsibilities in the event of an emergency situation arising at Valerie Manor.

The session also included practical training on how to evacuate a resident who is ‘bed bound’. A volunteer was ‘sought’ with yours truly given the honor.

Thank you to Nick and Michele for their continued support and training sessions throughout the year.
