Cool Feet!

A very big thank you to Toby & Elena the children of one of our carers (Holly Waite), who gave their spare paddling pool to the residents as they thought they might like to use it in the hot weather we have been having. As you will see it was very well received by residents and staff alike!!!

Thank you again Toby & Elena

Flower Arranging

One of our most popular regular activities is the Flower arranging session. Joyce and the residents really did a fantastic job (assisted by Ian) and if you have visited recently you may have noticed the results as you moved around the Home.

Well done to all concerned.

Welcome Linda

Linda has recently joined the team, and the residents and staff extend a very warm welcome to her.

“Hi my name is Linda, I have just joined the bank at Valerie Manor as a Care Assistant.

I have lived in Steyning since a child, and now live here with my husband and two daughters. I enjoy gardening and reading and am looking forward to joining the team at Valerie Manor”.

Thank you Emily

It is always nice to welcome work experience students to Valerie Manor, and we recently welcomed back a familiar face, who spent time with us last year for her Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Emily assisted the staff and residents in various tasks – all with a smile on her face! One of the tasks we gave her to do was to discuss with the residents and develop a ‘Fact of the Day’ folder, the idea being to stimulate conversations about memories and experiences, and with Emily’s help we won’t be running out of topics very soon!

Everyone wishes Emily the very best for the future, and look forward to seeing her again soon.
