Staff Meeting……



I was delighted once again to have a very lovely, well attended staff meeting. I am just so proud of all the staff here at Valerie Manor and cant thank them enough for all their hard work and dedication. Thank you also to Preeda and Steve for the most delicious variety of food for the evening.

Staff Training…….


As you may know, our trainers have been nominated for an award and the awards ceremony is this coming weekend so fingers crossed! One of the incredibly positive points regarding their training is the practical element involved along with staff experience what residents experience – this was demonstrated in a recent manual handling sessions with staff willing to experience being the resident.

Birthday Girl!

Happy Birthday to Nicola! We do love to celebrate not only our residents birthdays but staff Birthdays as well! Thank you Preeda for the lovely cake as always!

Mouth Care Matters

We were delighted when we heard that Valerie Manor had been successful in its application for a Mouth Care Matters (MCM) In-house Training Session which was an exciting education and training project. Mouth Care Matters (MCM) is a project being run by Health Education England (HEE). The initiative is setting-out to improve the oral health and oral health related quality of life for residents in care homes within the counties of Kent, Surrey and Sussex. It aims to establish a sustainable quality standard for the oral healthcare of older persons in this setting.

Lots of staff attended including care staff and our trained nurses and thoroughly benefited and enjoyed the training led by Pat, Adil and James.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the Dentists for providing this training session here at Valerie Manor.
