A message from the Manager

Since the last communication I have now been Home Manager for coming up to three months and I honestly don’t know where the time has gone; I guess time the saying is true “time flies when you’re having fun!”.
We also have a new hairdresser Yvonne who is now in weekly to make theresidents hair look lovely.
I know many of you are on our Monson Retirement Home Facebook page, if I couldplease ask for you all to continue to like our new page ‘Monson Care’. This is where all new photos & news will appear including our recent employees of the month.
We will also use the page to keep everyone updated with new events, suchas our new “Early onset dementia café morning” starting every Thursday from the19th August 2021 supported by Jane Robinson, one of our residents’ daughters. Thank you to Jane 😊
As a home, we continue to make the care personal to each resident, whilst we do have generic toiletries available, it would be wonderful if families could continue to please bring intheir loved ones’ favourite items to use.
We believe it is the small things in life that create comfort, especially for the residents.
It really is wonderful to see so many ofyou continuing to visit as things have relaxed more in terms of Covid19 restrictions – I recently sent out updated guidance on visiting to your personal emails plus the new questionnaire which needs to be completed.
To continue to book please ring us and we will be happy to help.
Stay safe, Joshua

Time for a BBQ

We took advantage of the nice weather to get some much needed sun & enjoy a BBQ outside. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves & eating some delicious food prepared by the chef. Hopefully that’s not not the last BBQ this summer.
