Work Experience

Each year we are happy to accommodate Steyning Grammar School request for work experience placements for students looking to gain experience of the Care sector.

This year we welcomed Chris and Charlie who were brilliant assisting our residents and staff in the communal areas.

Both Chris and Charlie spent time talking to the residents and hearing about their experiences and were keen to learn more about caring.

Charlie – “I chose to learn about care to gain skills to help others who may struggle with day to day tasks”

Chris – “In the future I would like to care and help younger people with mental health issues. Learning to care for a wide variety of people with different needs will provide good experience. Many of my close family already work in care.”

Everyone at Valerie Manor wishes them both all the best for the future and thank you for all your help.

Horsham Council Activities!

Today (Tuesday 9th July) Kimberly from Horsham District Council came back with her ball games. The residents love to see Kimberly and really enjoy the gentle competitiveness of the games offered!

We had a chance to test out our new conservatory furniture too…great morning!

Sunny Jalopy Outing!

On Monday 8th July, Lee and Bernadette took 5 residents out in the jalopy. One of the gentlemen said he’d like to go ‘East’ so that’s what they did!

The journey took them along the coast to Seaford via Brighton and Hove and returning over Devils Dyke through Poynings. Lovely!
