This is due to our home demonstrating a commitment to ensuring the ongoing well-being of our team. We have designated four Well-being Guardians in our home, to help support the mental health and enhance the wellbeing of our staff.
These guardians are trained in spotting signs and symptoms if someone is struggling, how to have a supportive conversation and when to signpost the individual onto the appropriate support.
These individuals will have ongoing training in matters related to mental health to develop their skills set in this area.
Our monthly wellbeing workshops for our team was a great success this month.
We had a wellbeing and nutritionist expert from the NHS come in to talk to the girls about how to look after their nutrition, sleep and exercise.
There were lots of great nuggets of information to improve our overall wellbeing.

Submitted via email regarding her Mother's 100th birthday party
I would like to thank Newgrange and all the staff for the hard work and effort you all put in to celebrate Edna's 100th burthday. She thoroughly enjoyed Elvis yesterday and the fantastic food and cake which you put on for her family party today. It was lovely that you provided the venue so beautifully decorated for her to share the time with old friends and family.
A special thank-you to Ronnie who even provided lollies for the Great Grandchildren as well as the wonderful cake and buffet. Thank you all so much, it is greatly appreciated & Edna is so lucky to spend her remaining days with such caring people. We could not ask for more.

I would just like to say that you have an exceptional care home with the most kindest and friendliest staff. They always made ourselves and my aunt feel very welcome and I would highly recommend you to any one else in the future.
