It’s great to start the new year with good intentions, but sometimes it’s difficult to know where to begin. We’ve put together a few new year resolution ideas for older people focussing on staying healthy, happy and active.
Country Court are helping to bring back the magic of Christmas to older people in the local community by joining the reengage.org Community Christmas initiative to help ensure no elderly person spends Christmas Day alone.
Meet Chloe, our Customer Relations Advisor at Tallington Lodge Care Home near Stamford in Lincolnshire. Chloe is the first point of contact for families of residents at Tallington Lodge, both for families thinking about a care home and those already residents. She tells what motivated her to become a Dementia Champion.
At Country Court Care we are about celebrating life every day; delivering five-star catering and hospitality and making mealtimes a sociable, shared experience to bring people together are key to this.
Choosing the right type of care can be a difficult and confusing time, there’s lots of terminology and so many choices on offer. Our latest blog explains a little more about respite care and why it could be a good place to start when choosing a care home.
As part of our Care to Create initiative we have been encouraging our residents to put pen to paper and engage with the written word. For some residents, it has been many years since they’ve had the opportunity to try their hand at letter writing or poetry but for others, like Margaret Lamb resident at The Grove Care Home, writing is a much-loved lifelong hobby.
