Friday 20th June 2014 was National Care Homes Open Day and over 30 residents and guests gathered in the Rose Garden for a sumptious Strawberry Tea. The sun was shining and there was no wind, which made for a very pleasant temperature. The tea started with a refreshing glass of elderflower cordial and followed with home-grown strawberries and cream, sandwiches, victoria sponge, scones and tea, all provided by Angelina & Magda in the kitchens. An added extra for the afternoon was Birtley cider tasting, which seemed to to go down well with everyone!
When the tea was finished, Simon (Whalley) planted an Almond tree, just below the Rose Garden in memory of his mother, June Whalley, to commemorate her 90th birthday.
Special thanks go to Matt for his hard work in preparing the Rose Garden to provide such beautiful surroundings for the occasion.
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.
