This includes, pet therapy, trips out to local places of interest, visits from entertainers and musicians, bingo, one to one pamper time, weekly quizzes, coffee mornings, arts and crafts and baking. Activities are considered to be a crucial aspect of our home as residents look forward to upcoming events. As a result, it is essential that our team work together with dedication, to ensure residents are entertained and involved in as many activities as possible.
Life at our home
On Thursday the 14th November we had a special celebration at Beaumont in Stamford Bridge, as 3 of our dedicated team were celebrating turning 60! With 180 years combined age it was only right that we marked the special occasion with a party within the home enjoyed by staff and residents.
15 Years of Service
We celebrated Ann Beckett’s 15th year at Stamford Bridge. Ann is a Housekeeping Assistant at the home. She was presented with a gold pin, shopping vouchers and flowers. Congratulations, Ann!
Macmillan Coffee Morning
We were a little delayed in holding our Macmillan Coffee Morning, which was hosted on Thursday 9th October. This was organised by Cherlye Yates, our head of assisted living at Stamford Bridge Beaumont.
We raised a huge £400, many thanks to all who made it such an enjoyable morning. We received many contributions of prizes from local businesses and the generosity of those who live at and visit Beaumont
Stamford Bridge Beaumont are delighted to welcome back Singing Fingers hosted by Kate Burkinshaw to the home for the second year following the success of its launch last year.
Each Friday morning during term time we welcome the Mother and Toddler interactive music group which our residents love to participate in.
Charity Fashion Show
Stamford Bridge Beaumont was bang on trend this week when residents and their guests were treated to a fashion show. The home teamed up with Dunnington Branch of Cancer support to host a fashion show for residents and their relatives at the home.
On the day, models strutted down the catwalk at the home to show-off the clothes to the residents at the home. They enjoyed homemade scones and afternoon tea whilst models from the support group alongside some of the staff members at the home showcased the range of comfortable, nearly new fashion which many residents purchased.
Langlands Garden Centre
After a spot of shopping and admiring the plants we enjoyed lunch in the café at Langlands Garden Centre. A lovely day was had by all who went on the outing!
