Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience, and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
Life at Glebefields Care Home
National Carers Week - Thank you To Glebefields!
GLEBEFIELDS HONOURS CARERS FOR NATIONAL CARERS WEEK
Residents at Glebefields care home in Drayton, run by Barchester Healthcare, are celebrating National Carers’ Week, which takes place from June 7-13. Residents wanted to thank all the wonderful staff at the home, whose hard work and dedication make a real difference to the lives of those living in their care.
Carers Week is an annual event to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges carers face, and recognising the contribution they make to our residents, families and communities throughout the UK. The theme for Carers Week this year is ‘Making caring visible and valued’ - to shine a light on all those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to care for vulnerable people in our communities.
Staff were treated to a loving card and box of chocolates gifted to them by our very own residents!
Nisha Shaji, General Manager said: “It is so wonderful to be able to celebrate Carers Week and thank our fantastic carers with a summer party in our garden this year, and to be able to welcome the community, relatives and friends back again, whilst adhering to government guidance of course. It really does feel like life is getting back to normal now that we can have events and entertainment again. Everyone has had such a fantastic day, we’re all so happy to be able to see each other face to face.”
Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.
We’re making our homes as safe as possible and will ensure that all new residents and staff are vaccinated before moving in or working in our homes. Please do give us a call on 01295 738133 if you are looking for care or need any further help.

What a lovely day for a Pic-Nic!
This last Friday, April 23rd the residents of Glebefields Care Home made the most of the beautiful weather and had an afternoon picnic in our garden. They were treated to a fabulous meal of fish & chips from our wonderful chefs. We basked in the sunshine in our bonnets until the late afternoon and when everyone else was ready to go in, Bert exclaimed that he, “never wanted to go back” because he had to work on his tan!
