Love has been in the air at Astley this February, with Valentine’s, sharing memories, enjoying hobbies and visits from children.

Love in every which way!

We had a wonderful Valentine’s Day here at Astley Hall. Vocalist Jannette came in to sing love songs to our residents. We baked heart-shaped cookies together and hand-crafted Valentine’s cards.

We have made a start on our Memory Tree project. One of our residents Derek, shared stories of his time working as a gardener and on the farm. He sang in his church choir for 25 years, and now his favourite hobby is flower arranging. He shared his love of holidaying in Dartmouth, Devon and we framed a poem he wrote for the memory tree.

When I think of Dartmouth, I think of the bungalow,
Where me, Mum and Auntie would go to lay low.
When I think of Dartmouth, I think of cream tea,
I’m reminded of walks, in the afternoon by the sea.
Across the English Channel can be seen a small village,
By the name of Torcross, a place very vintage. 
These are the things I love about Dartmouth;
The fish, the hotels and being warm in the south.

We enjoyed another beautiful get together with the Debutots children. They brought puppets, teddies and the bubble machine! We also had a wonderful visit from the children of Astley Primary School. They made painted clay flower posies and gifted them to our resident. We were all so touched by their kindness. They sang songs and recited poems to residents all around our home and performed so confidently.

An update from our recent CQC inspection

We had a recent unannounced inspection from the care regulator, The Care Quality Commission and have now received their report. Our Managing Director for our Heritage Manor care home group, Simon Patient says

“We are very pleased to see the report noted the improvements that had been made, and the many positive comments made by residents and their relatives.  The team have worked hard to satisfy the CQC requirements, which were not relaxed following a challenging two years of Covid-19, and we are all pleased to see this reflected in this report.

The overall environment for care homes remains challenging.  The government have now scrapped all additional funding that had been announced over recent years, and Worcestershire council have also decided to continue to cut funding to socially funded residents.  As a group, we continue to focus on the provision of care to residents and families who are able to fund themselves, and so continue to invest significant amounts into the home. 

If you have any questions about our home, or are looking for a role in care, please do contact us.
