Five baby showers in one for Springhill

on .

Staff at Springhill Care Home in Accrington are experiencing their very own baby boom at the moment, with a special event to celebrate.

Five members of staff are soon to have babies, and we have arranged a baby shower to help everyone mark the occasion.

The special event took place in the Milnshaw Lounge. All residents and family members were invited, with fun and games, refreshment and cake on the agenda.

Springhill Care Group is no stranger to baby booms – earlier in the year staff at sister care home Birch Green in Skelmersdale celebrated five babies born in 12 months with a further six on the way.

The five mums-to-be are Paige Smith-Phelps, our activities team leader, and healthcare assistants Collette Mellor, Emily Birtwistle, Chelsea Spencer and Amy Hopwood.

We’d like to wish all five ladies the best, and we hope you enjoyed the baby shower.

Silence is golden for care home fundraisers

on .

 

Staff at Springhill Care Home in Accrington took part in a charity event to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).

 

The event featured silent football and netball games – the MNDA’s motto is Silence Speaks, relating to one of the side-effects of the disease.

 

Staff also took part in a silent flash dance – when music was played around the care home, staff danced.

 

The day was a great success, with everyone commenting on how well it went and how much fun it was. So far, £120 has been raised.

Bob the bagpipe player

on .

Springhill Care Home was filled with the sound of bagpipes recently thanks to a visit by local player Bob Wilson.

Bob, based in Preston, is known for playing the traditional instrument at events across the North West, and spent time touring the home.

Bob was lovely and the residents all had a chance to listen and speak to him afterwards if they had any questions.

Music has long been recognised as a great form of therapy and we’d all like to thank Bob for his time.

Care Home celebrations at Springhill

on .

          

 

As part of celebrations across the country to mark Care Home Open Day, residents and staff welcomed friends, family and members of our local community into our home.

There was a visit from some stunning birds of prey thanks to Lancashire Hawks and Owls, regular visitors to Springhill, and a traditional fairground organ and games as well as delicious treats on offer at the cake stall and cocktail bar.

We were also joined by John Pomfret from the Care Quality Commission, who took part in a dementia experience coordinated by Paige from our lifestyle team. It’s an effective way of simulating the symptoms associated with dementia by participating in activities designed to impair the senses and create confusion.

Springhill chairman Ken Nolan said: “There were some fantastic stands and the staff did a terrific job of coordinating the day. The dementia experience is superb and always leaves a lasting impression, and it was good of John Pomfret to join us.”

It was great to get together with friends and family to shine a light on the good work done in care homes and give people a taste of what Springhill is all about.

Visitors wishing to pop by and meet us can do so at any time – just get in touch and we’ll arrange to show you some of our industry-leading facilities.

Telehealth benefits Springhill residents

on .

Springhill residents are reaping the benefits of innovative technology allowing them to take greater control of their health. 

We are using the Telehealth system which enables healthcare professionals to monitor and manage patients’ long term health conditions through the remote exchange of data.

By using the system, our residents can receive medical advice and guidance from health professionals without the need to leave the home to visit a surgery or a hospital.

Users can also take readings in relation to certain conditions, such as high blood pressure, asthma and COPD, and submit to their GP at any time.

Bernadette Bennett, service manager at Springhill Care Home, said: “There are many benefits to using the Telehealth system for people who have long-term health issues. It reduces the time involved in making phone calls and waiting for doctors to respond, and as a result outcomes are delivered far more quickly.

“It also means users can discuss any changes to their condition with their doctor immediately, without having to wait for an appointment. Furthermore, residents don’t need to leave the home and travel to see their GP, which at times can be impractical and very time consuming for the individual.

“The system is also helping residents to retain a sense of independence when it comes to being in control of their own health and wellbeing, which is so important in the delivery of personalised care.”
