On Friday 12th July, Sing out Sisters came to entertain us. What a treat! Over 30 ladies piled into the conservatory to sing some beautiful and catchy melodies – feet were tapping and hand were clapping. This lovely group volunteer to come to visit us and we are so lucky to have them do so. What a great choir! We look forward to welcoming them back in the future.
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.
