Birchy Hill’s Residents love to be active!
They enjoy having a fun filled morning with Vitality Care (Photograph), but they also join activities like ‘Sit and be Fit’, ‘Chair Dance’, ‘Music and Movement’, the ‘Parachute Game’, ‘Balloon Tennis’ and a variety of ball games, which are the favourite of some of our very competitive players.
In the summer months also gardening, garden walks, and trips to the lake or the seaside offer physical activities for everybody.
Habibi and the Flowers of the Desert were guests in our Home.
They entertained us with their Belly Dance Show which magically transformed Birchy Hill into an Arabian Palace.
The colourful costumes and the very engaging music encouraged the Residents and Staff alike to join the professional dancers.
Thank you, Habibi, we had great fun!
Once a month the Birchy Hill Residents go off to meet the Residents in a Care Home in Ashley.
These meetings support our Residents contact with the wider community.
This time we were entertained with a fun filled musical show and quiz, and we enjoyed tea and homemade jam doughnuts.
Our team was quite successful in answering quiz questions, something to talk about on the way home.
With a smile and a tune on their lips, everybody returned happily and probably dreamed about Doris Day, Frank Sinatra or George Michael.
In April the High Flyer Award was given to the Registered Night Nurse Ghiorghe Stefan, in recognition of his availability and flexibility to the Service, for being king and caring, and for his excellent attendance record.
Congratulation, Ghiorghe, from all at Birchy Hill!
The High Flyer Award for Mach was given to 2 very valued young ladies:
Kate Gilbert – Mental Health Nurse, was recognised for her dedication and hard work. She manages case work very well, is proactive in getting tasks done, and is very involved with service users’ care.
Eloisa Silva – Health Care Assistant, received the award for her hard work, for being kind and caring. She has a great personality and attitude to work. Eloise is always ready to help and made a great impression in a short time.
Congratulations from all at Birchy Hill, well done, ladies!
