Lunch is ‘in the bag’ at Springhill

on .

A new scheme launched at Springhill Care Home will see healthy, nutritious lunches supplied for staff and residents attending hospital visits.

 

The idea was discussed at one of Springhill’s monthly gatherings of a group called Employee Voice, an employee meeting which discusses how the service at Springhill can be continually improved.

 

Volunteers are encouraged to attend from each department to take part in the meeting and share ideas, with proposals are taken to the Springhill Care Group board for further discussion.

 

The lunch box scheme will now make sure that staff and residents do not need to worry about either money or making sure they have enough to eat when visiting hospital. Often these visits can last a considerable time.

 

Curtis Bennett, General Manager at Springhill Care Home, said: “This idea is still in its infancy, but we all believe it will be a positive step to support both staff and residents in a practical way.”

 


 

Summer celebrations at Springhill

on .

Friends, relatives, staff and residents all joined in the fun at Springhill Care Home, Accrington recently to celebrate with a summer fair.

 

Visitors to the home were welcomed with a range of entertainment and games, including a coconut shy, hook-a-duck and bouncy castles.

 

Staff joined in the fun, manning stalls and decorating the grounds for the occasion while visitors and their children enjoyed musical entertainment and cake stalls.

 

We’d like to thank everyone who attended and who helped make the event such a success.

Hands-on with creepy crawlies

on .

Residents at Springhill Care Home in Accrington got hands-on with a number of animals recently in a special activity.

 

The home was visited by a team from Zoolab, the specialists in animal handling experiences, who brought along animals including a corn snake, tarantula, giant African snail, hissing cockroaches, rats, and an Australian tree frog.

 

Residents were encouraged to touch the animals and ask questions about them, and we also had a few extra special guests – relatives and children of staff members who were invited to come and learn about the animals too.
