Shortlisted for the Care Home Awards 2019!

You may recognise these pictures from 2017 and 2018 where we won 2017 Best Individual Care Home and in 2018 Best Nursing Care!

We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for two categories in this Years Care Home Awards!

  • Best for Communication (with residents, families, friends & carers) We were thrilled to hear that we had been shortlisted for this category as it includes the fantastic communication skills that all staff have here at Valerie Manor! Fingers crossed!
  • Best Individual Care Home or Care Community  We won this award in 2017 and it would be such a special occasion to win it again this year but to be shortlisted is something that as a small family run home with amazing staff we are very proud of!

Poetry and Story telling………..

We welcomed Isobel Woods to Valerie manor last week to read poetry and tell some stories…….this was a new activity for us but enjoyed by those who attended!

High tea anyone?………….

Once a month we hold a special ‘High Tea’ for all our residents which is also a lovely social gathering in the conservatory where even the chefs come and join everyone. I must say, the food always looks delicious but I am trying to be good so didn’t give in to a cake!
