Welcome to the Newsletter By Chris Slinn, Joanne Webb and Angela Clancy


Dear Friends,

A Warm welcome to the Autumn Special Edition of the Newsletter of NEWFORD Nursing Home.

This year our ambition is to keep producing a regular newsletter 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 ask for your free copy.

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.

At NEWFORD Nursing Home we are always looking for ways to improve our surroundings – so we have installed a lovely 3 tier fountain with matching bench and Gazebo.

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.

Thanks for keeping our home happy
