Activities at our home
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 Juniper House Care Home
Mocktails in the Garden
Hasn't mother nature been kind to us this week! We took the opportunity to enjoy the evening sunshine with some mocktails in the garden. We are very lucky to have such a lovely garden for the residents and staff to enjoy, especially on days like today.
A Big Thank You
We would like to say a big thank you for all the support that we have received during this unprecedented time. We have been overwhelmed by the amount of support, offers of help and gifts from so many of you connected to our home, either though our residents, staff or professionally. We would also like to thank the community of Brackley for all its support; it really has meant so much to us all here at Juniper – thank you!
Virtual Carnival Day
Brackley was filled with community spirit as the town's virtual carnival filled our streets, all whilst adhering to the government guidance on social distancing.
The town came together to celebrate Carnival Day with a difference. It was organised so that the people in Brackley could still enjoy a day of fun in place of the actual town's yearly carnival, which had to be cancelled due to the current ongoing pandemic.
Brackley Community Radio paid us a visit here at Juniper House and we were entertained by the wonderful local singer, Jenna, who point an an amazing performance, which left all the residents and staff speechless.
We are so proud to be part of this amazing community – thank you from Juniper House!
We have had some lovely donations of flowers and plants. Thank you so much to Tesco, Waitrose and B&Q for their generosity, which has added some extra colour to our rooms and gardens.
Flowers for Friends
Juniper House is clearly the hub of its community. We have excellent relationship with a private school nearby, and yesterday they arrived here with flowers, cards and pictures for all the residents. The school has launched a campaign to support us through this difficult time, and they have called it 'Flowers for Friends'.
Juniper House went to the ball and we felt like princesses for the evening. We enjoyed a special night of laughter, song and dance when we watched a fantastic local amateur pantomime group perform Cinderella. It certainly didn’t disappoint, and we all roared with laughter at the ugly sisters – oh yes we did!
From the opening scene to the last scene, it kept us all entertained throughout… And we will certainly be back next year for their next performance.
