It's such a joy for us at Birtley House when we get the opportunity to make someone's day. As one of few privately owned nursing homes in surrey, we have the ability to tailor make our residents experiences because we are not confined to a corporate daily agenda. Our decions are made in the best interests of our residents, and as well as provide multiple variations of activities and entertainment daily, we do our best to offer the little things that people can really enjoy, such as cooking, gardening, picking the vegetables or even doing the laundry.
Today we were able to have our resident Mr Jenkins working in the kitchen, who by the look of the pictures, thoroughly enjoyed himself. Working with our head chef and kitchen manager Simon, together they chopped apples and made chutney. The cooking lesson was very well received, and Simon was very generous to find the time for this type of holistic therapy in his kitchen.
An afternoon spent getting to know each other
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
