National Nurses Day

Today is National Nurses Day!

A special thank you to the Nurses at Valerie Manor, who in 2020 won the National Best Nursing Team at the Care Home Awards. The whole team at the Home has worked tirelessly for the past 14 months to care for not only the residents but relatives and each other too.

We are also proud to say that we have remained COVID free.

We would also like to thank all the nurses throughout the NHS & Social Care who have supported us in the past year, a special thanks to all nurses at Steyning Medical Centre, Rhia Evans & Wendy Hartley at Worthing Hospital, nurses at St Barnabas House and the local PHE team for continuous advice and guidance.

The video below says it all!

NHS Track and Trace

With the recent changes to the Government Guidance relating to authorised visitors being able to self test at home (after being deemed competent and confident) we have contacted all relatives with the details as well as the short instructional video below.

The Gazebo – mark II

I’m sure if you have visited Valerie Manor before in the summer you would have been able to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful countryside in one of the many seating areas in the gardens.

During a recent residents meeting its was mentioned that although the gazebo was a lovely place to sit and watch the wildlife and animals in the fields adjacent (Llamas, Alpacas, Pigs, Goats etc) it was a bit exposed to the wind.

We tasked Lee with the project and he spoke to the residents and between them came up with a plan!

Zoe & I visited this week – just in time to ‘test’ the new seating! which as you will see below passed with flying colours!

A huge thank you to Lee and the residents for their time and effort.

Easter Cards

Our residents where thrilled to receive Easter Cards from the children at Ashurst Primary School.

Such a wonderfully thoughtful gesture and as you can see really made the residents happy.

Thank you to everyone involved and hope you all had a Happy Easter.
