Fernhill’s ‘Project Outstanding’ is proving a huge success
Fernhill House has launched a campaign to ensure residents continue to have a fun and meaningful time every day.
Project Outstanding is named in celebration of the Care Quality Commission’s Outstanding rating, given to homes which go beyond what is expected of them and a target towards which Fernhill is working.
This weekend’s launch of ‘Clovers Cream Tea Sundays’ as part of its Life History project, is one of a wide range of fun, interesting and sometimes unusual activities which take place at Fernhill House.
After the Sunday March 4 inaugural event, the regular activity will see residents, their families and the Clover team spend a few hours together to delve into the incredible lives experienced by those who live at Fernhill House.
Memory care lead Paul Turvey explained: “It's a time for families to meet each other, share experiences and memories and most importantly, support each other.
“Our Clover family are incredibly special to us and we are always trying to find new ways of providing the very best in person centred care. I am fascinated by the life history of our family of residents and believe it is of the utmost importance for us to understand a resident’s background in as much detail as possible, to really fine tune the perfect care for them.
“Our specially trained staff will be on hand to offer help and advice if needed – and provide the scones of course! We hope as many of our families possible will join us for the fun and laughter and be part of creating great memories and something very special.”
Fernhill House has also been bathed in the beautiful sound of piano music – thanks to resident Sheila, who has been practising her skills on the baby grand which has moved to a new location in the bistro.
The newly formed bridge club is going from strength to strength, a decoupage event brought out the creative side in many residents and regular exercise classes are proving quite a draw.
