This weeks coming activities…
South East Regional Palliative Care Award for the Team!
I am delighted to announce that the Valerie Manor Care team were awarded the South East Regional Award for Palliative / End of Life Care.
Staff really pride themselves in the care that they deliver and the support they offer not only to our residents but to their family and to each other as well.
We have been part of the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) since 2012 and have a Platinum status with a score of 50/50 of which we are very proud of! The Core Team and Champions help to continuously improve what we do at Valerie Manor and also support other staff who are more junior. It is not just the nurses or the care staff but the whole team including office staff, housekeeping staff and hospitality staff who want to take on further learning to support our residents and their families along with their colleagues – This is why I have chosen to nominate the whole team and not one individual.
1st Henfield Guides – Remembrance Day Service
We welcomed our friends from the 1st Henfield Guides this week as they provided our residents with a beautiful Remembrance day service.
It was a full conservatory that marked this poignant time.
The Guides stayed and chatted with the residents – they even sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to a resident who was celebrating their birthday the next day!
Thank you as always to the Guides and their Leaders for taking the time to mark this very important time.
