The Bluebirds

In May we enjoyed a fabulous concert from “The Bluebirds”.


The Bluebirds brought to us their “Swinging 60s” show – just one of the shows from their fabulous repertoire.


They sung a wide variety of songs for us including hits from The Beatles, The Shirelles, The Crystals, Andy Williams and so many more!


We laughed, we danced and mostly we enjoyed the lovely voices of the singing and dancing duo.


They dressed up 60s style and also did synchronised dance moves which made it all the more enjoyable – and they even gave us some moves to join in with them!


We can definitely say we all hope to see them back very soon!

Springhill Care Group shines with Platinum award

Springhill Care Group has been awarded the prestigious Platinum award from Investors in People – the highest accolade that can be achieved through the scheme held by only two per cent of all organisations which have been assessed.

Assessors highlighted the ‘high performing’ Springhill Care Group for how it has further strengthened its organisation since it was awarded a Gold standard three years ago to join only two per cent of IIP accredited clients to achieve Platinum.

The IIP report said: “Evidence was presented of significant development in its approach to innovation and continuous improvement. The working environment developed as a result of the effective leadership approach has been fundamental to the creating of a high-performance organisational culture.

“Both managers and staff across all three nursing and care homes within Springhill Care Group described how they experience very effective leadership through a very inclusive and collaborative leadership style. People described how everything they do and the way they do things is driven by the company values. This starts with values-based recruitment.”

Built on the three pillars of leading, supporting and improving, the IIP framework sets out what it takes to deliver a people management system that enables organisations to succeed by realising the potential of their people.

Donna Briggs, managing director of Springhill Care Group, said: “This is great news for all staff because they help to make us the organisation we are. I’d like to thank our staff team for creating the culture of excellence we have which ultimately ensures that the quality of care for our residents is second-to-none.”

Chris Jones, Director of Operations at Investors In People, said: “Platinum is our highest award and recognises high performance achieved through integrated people practices. Springhill Care Group first achieved Investors in People in 1995 and since then we have seen the group go from strength to strength.”

As part of the IIP online assessment process, the care group exceeded both the IIP average and care sector benchmarks with an organisational benchmark score of 799 out of 900 where care sector average is 765 and overall IIP average is 724.

Assessors added that on-site evidence presented was found to fully validate the online results of the IIP survey amongst all staff and was “a very strong performance against an internationally recognised business transformation framework.

The assessors cited examples such as the Admiral Nursing Programme offering guidance in dementia care and programmes developed in the Assistant Nursing Practitioner and Teaching Homes programmes.


Up and Active at Springhill Care Home

Residents at Springhill Care Home will help transform our garden in coming months thanks to a series of gardening sessions.


Delivered by the Up and Active team from Hyndburn Leisure, the plan is to plant wild flower seeds and help them grow to make Springhill’s outside areas even more beautiful. Plans are also in place to grow some vegetables.


Ian from Up and Active led the first session, which took place indoors thanks to poor weather. Residents learnt about how to grow potatoes, with Ian using pine cones as a substitute for the vegetables!


Everyone had lots of fun and Ian even came equipped with a ukulele to lead a good sing-song. The next session will take place on May 28, and hopefully the weather will stay fine so everyone can enjoy some time outside.


Sewing Club at Springhill

Springhill Care Home’s popular sewing club met recently.


The club is a great chance for people to socialise while being creative and learning new skills, and one of our residents has been working hard on a cushion cover with a little help from a friend who visits each week.


Once complete, the cover will be added to her wheelchair and this is a great example of putting skills to good use while having a great time!


Springhill Teddy on tour - Dumfries and Galloway

Springhill Care Home’s resident teddy bear has been on an exciting Scottish adventure with Sam and Gemma (Springhill Care Home), Bev (Head Office) and family when they recently went to Dumfries and Galloway on their family holiday.

They all enjoyed visits to Galloway Forest, Galloway River and Galloway Harbour, the coastal village of Garlieston, Glenluce Abbey and last but not least Port William.

It was a fun filled adventure holiday and Teddy especially enjoyed crabbing with Charlie and Arthur and making new four legged friends whilst out walking.

A big thank you to Sam, Gemma and Bev for sending us the fabulous photos, it looks like you had a great time.

We’re looking forward to seeing where Teddy ends up next and we would love for anyone going away on holiday to take him on their travels.
