We are very proud of our Abberton family and like to celebrate individual achievements as well as team endeavours.
Recent staff achievements
One of our team Edyta has just been completed her Heritage Manor training to become a peer mentor.
Big congratulations also to Jordan and Kate for both completing their Care Certificates.
Heritage Manor has a strong focus on training our staff to be the best they can be, always striving to go the extra mile. Our home manager Ruth awards certificates of achievement and we are, as ever, hugely grateful to our staff for seeing us through an incredibly difficult period in social care.
We also recently had two new nurses join our Abberton Manor team this month. Just in time for International Nurses Day, which we always like to mark.
Support from our wider Abberton family
One resident’s husband recently had kindness T-shirts made and brought them in as gifts for our team. Don’t they look great! We also often have lovely deliveries of cakes and bakes, as “Thank Yous” to our team for all their hard work. All hugely appreciated.
Some new visitors
We have welcomed to Abberton Jo Anderson, our new hairdresser. Many residents are delighted she is now visiting our home, as she used to cut and blow dry their hair out in the community. Nothing like a good catch up and a bit of pampering before a party. Yes, plans are afoot for our Jubilee celebrations!
We have been making the most of the warmer days to plant our raised beds. They are the perfect height for residents to be able to dig in the soil without having to bend down. A study has found that contact with a certain bacteria in soil triggers the release of serotonin in the brain and works as a natural anti-depressant. Residents feel good gardening and love to reap the rewards of their efforts, whether stunning flowers or scrummy veggies! And a little visitor was admiring our handiwork – a fearless fox watched for a long while, peering from behind a hedge. Our garden is quite a haven for wildlife. We also have a family of muntjac deer – gorgeous to look at, but they had better not nibble at our raised beds!
