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!

Welcome to Jazz Singer Jax!

This morning we have a wonderful new singer visit us at Valerie Manor. Residents and staff were treated to classic Jazz anthems along with a few modern classics including songs by The Beatles and Tom Jones!

Staff had a boogie and all toes were tapping on this gloriously beautiful day. What fun! We will definitely be inviting Jax back to sing for us again!


Care Home Awards 2019

As you will be aware we were all very excited and proud to have been nominated and selected as finalist in this years awards.

A group of 20 staff made their way to the ExCel in London for the Award ceremony, where Alan Dedicoat (the voice of the Balls) announced the winners.

Best for Communication Award –  Whilst we didn’t win this category the judges did award us a ‘High Commendation’

Best Individual Care Home   –  We were all very nervous as the finalist we announced but when Alan Dedicoat started by saying “The winner this year also won in 2017 and were runner’s-up in 2018, a family run Home…..”  the excitement increased – It was so lovely for the whole team to receive this award again and celebrate the wonderful environment Valerie Manor is not only for our residents but also the staff and visitors.

We have received so many lovely message from families and friends following the award, thank you so much.
