Birtley House had a very exciting evening on Friday 23rd January with Jeremy Hunt, our local MP and Secretary of State for Health, and Anne Milton, MP for Guildford presenting the first Elizabeth Care certificates, following a course at the University of Surrey, to six successful candidates including our own Lead Carer Ola Szychulska.
An invited audience of over 50, including the Mayor of Waverley, Cllr Liz Wheatley and Prof Martin Green, CEO of Care England and several of our residents and staff, were there to see the ceremony and join in the celebrations. Jeremy Hunt congratulated all the candidates and commended the course. He warmly thanked Birtley House for hosting the event and Anne Milton added her congratulations and thanks to Birtley and Rosemary Hurtley of 360 Forward, who pioneered the course, for their support for the project.
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.
