We have in recent months started our Wheel of Fortune as a way of awarding achievements of members of our team.
We spin the Wheel of Fortune on the first of each month and have a prize for each colour on the wheel. Whoever has been nominated to receive recognition, spins the wheel to win.
We have a comments and suggestions box where residents and their families and visitors to Astley can nominate who they want to receive the award.
Our team work so hard, not just caring for our residents, but bringing smiles to faces, uplifting hearts and sprinkling happiness throughout our home. It’s the little touches that make a difference. For example, helping one of our ladies chose an outfit with matching accessories. Or playing a competitive game of quoits. Or simply having a quiet moment holding hands and listening.
The Wheel of Fortune is a way of recognising achievements and is a real boost to staff members. Everyone deserves recognition and it is lovely to be told that you are making a difference to people’s lives.
