Inside This Issue

Welcome to the February Newsletter

This year our ambition is to keep producing a newsletter every month to share experiences and news in our Home. These can be sent out on email if you like – just make sure Chris has your email addresses by dropping them into the front office or 14

In order to provide an excellent service to residents in our home we believe it is essential that we are both professional in our management and compassionate in our care.

Newford Nursing Home – Care Awards

At NEWFORD Nursing Home we will be presenting an award at the end of every month for the best care offered by a member of staff. The January winner is Rachel Ball – well done Rachel.

Our residents are central in everything that we do and we are continually striving to look at ways of improving and offering choices to them so their lives are fulfilled. Residents, relatives and friends play a very important role in assisting us with these awards and we would welcome any ideas and suggestions that you may have for the next nominations. Please put nominations in the suggestion box or contact a member of Staff.

Happy 24th Birthday to NEWFORD NURSING HOME

We opened on 14th February ( Valentines Day ) 1990 and Angela Clancy our Deputy Care Manager was there at the beginning and is still here now.
If you want to share any memories from those original days at Newford Nursing Home – Just let us know and we will include them in future newsletters.
