Hasn't it been hot?

Hasn't it been hot?

Summer has certainly been a hot and sunny one, so far this year!

Trying to stay cool has been a challenge for our residents and staff. Our Foot Spa has been a Godsend for everyone. It does seem to bring our temperatures down just by bathing our feet in the cool water. We decided to relax our staff uniform requirements when the temperatures were heading to the high 30’s and this helped us a little bit to “Keep cool and carry on”. Our staff and visitors are still required (government requirements) to wear face masks - this too has contributed to making everyone feel even hotter.

Our gardens are looking superb - even if we say so ourselves! We know we are lucky to have such a tranquil spot to enjoy. The plants are growing healthily across the top of our pergola and this has become a popular place to sit and have a natter with families and friends. Many of our residents head outside on a daily basis. Some can manage independently while others need the help and support from our team. Sometimes a whizz in the wheelchair around the path to inspect the plants is the boost that our less mobile residents need to keep them feeling involved.

Our entertainments program continues in full swing although we have reduced some of the more physical activities to help us cope with the heat! We’ve enjoyed a nautical day, Chinese themed menu, American Independence Day, Wimbledon Teas, Picnic style supper, Cheese & Wine evenings to name but a few of our events. We have lots exciting entertainment planned for August to include a Caribbean themed day and Pimms on the Patio!

Let’s hope this glorious summer continues while we continue to enjoy the blue skies and summer sunshine!
