A touch of Spring…

Karon, our ancillary manager, saw the beautiful array of daffodils in the Valerie Manor garden this morning and whilst they are hidden away from public view due to our current lock down situation, we thought we’d bring a touch of Spring indoors!


We are sure everyone is now aware of the Governments advice to stay safe during this worrying time but please do visit the below link regularly as it is here that the latest advice and updates can be found.


Please rest assured that we have already planned contingencies should the Home become affected.

During the coming weeks our focus will be on maintaining a safe environment and therefore we have already contacted our visiting Entertainers/ Hairdresser’s / Chiropodist to ask them not to attend until further notice. Unusually for Valerie Manor our blog will be very quiet for this reason.

Obviously should any potential visitor feel unwell you should not visit but follow the governments advice regarding ‘self-isolating’

We are updating the residents with our plans etc at midday today and thank everyone for their understanding at this extremely challenging time.

Lastly a huge thank you to all our amazing staff who have already begun look at their availability to cover should staffing levels be affected.

Introducing Debs our Registered Manager!

We are all very proud that Debs has received her official certificate from the CQC – confirming her position as Registered Manager.

Huge congratulations from all the staff and residents. We are all so happy to have you lead the award winning team in 2020!

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.
