Virtual Visit Helen Whately – Minister for Care

We were thrilled to be contact by the Department of Health and Social Care to ask if we would have a virtual visit with Helen Whately, Minister for Care to discuss the positive things that we have been doing and also have the opportunity to ask questions. 

Myself and Alan were joined by Debs and Lucy (Manager and Deputy), Alison, a relative of a resident and Mike, pharmacist form Upper Beeding Pharmacy.

This is what Helen had to say on a Tweet following the meeting – we look forward to receiving the script from the meeting that we would also be happy to share.

Thanks to ⁦‪@valeriemanor⁩ #carehome for my virtual visit today. Really good to hear how they have been providing outstanding care through these difficult times & their close working relationship with the local pharmacy. Thank you #careheroes pic.twitter.com/PCVytfnA6W

Zoe celebrates 12 years at Valerie Manor!

On Sunday 26th January Zoe celebrated her 12th anniversary at Valerie Manor with residents, staff and friends and family at the home with prosecco and canapés! There was a lovely speech made and Zoe was presented with lots of cards, balloons and gifts and some beautiful flowers which everyone is now enjoying. The special cake was made by Alison, one of our chefs and was delicious! Zoe would like to say a huge thank you to not only to the wonderful staff who have made Valerie Manor the Outstanding home that it is but to the local Community for their continued support to us as a small family run home not forgetting Zoe’s Mum and Dad and husband Alan who made Zoe’s dream possible.
