This week, we have been working closely with Steph Simmons Photography to update our website with fresh new images of our beautiful home. It has been a pleasure to work with such a talented photographer.
We will be updating our website with these wonderful new images next week, but we thought you may like to see a sneak peak of one of our bedroom shots.
Please get in touch if you would like some more information about the services we offer, or visit our website https://www.springfieldgarforth.co.uk/
We can't wait to hear from you!
On our MySpringfield App, we have an area where staff can thank their colleagues and share the reasons that they are grateful for each other. Over the last few months, we have had many amazing comments and we thought it would be lovely to share these with you all.
Please note: we have made sure that these quotes are anonymous to protect our staff and residents.
Virtual 360 Tour
We would like to invite you all to view our Virtual Tour which will hopefully provide you with a taste of what it is like inside of our beautiful home. We didn't want you to miss out on the opportunity for a show around, so we thought we would bring the tour to you, from the comfort of your own home!
Please feel free to contact us on 01132 863415 - we are always available to talk and discuss options
We hosted an “It’s Good to Talk” drop in session on Tuesday 7th July, whereby we set up snacks, refreshments and ‘goodie bags’ and gave staff the opportunity to talk about any worries or concerns that they may have. We were delighted that staff embraced this opportunity and we plan to host more drop in sessions in the near future.
We asked staff to write anonymous comments about each other and departments. The comments are lovely to read and it truly shows the teamwork and the respect that our staff holds for each other.
This week, 6th-12th July, is #GladtoCare awareness week which aims to support families that are looking into a Care Home for a loved one.
Although we are not able to invite you inside to show you our beautiful home at the moment, we still want to be able to show you what we have to offer. We have recently created a virtual tour of our wonderful home (https://click360.me/tours/springfield/spg2020/) if you would like to view inside our beautiful Care Home. If you have any questions, please get in touch on 01132 863415
We have all been enjoying our busy and fun-filled activities timetable which changes weekly! This weekend, our residents have been busy playing lots of games and getting creative whilst drawing and colouring in.
You may have noticed our profile pictures have been looking a little more colourful than usual! This is not only to celebrate our wonderful keyworkers at Springfield Healthcare but we are also flying our rainbow colours in support of National #pride month and our #LGBTQ+ colleagues and communities. At Springfield we acknowledge this month of pride may be very different to those before it and Springfield Healthcare have specially trained Mental Health First Aiders to assist and support those members of the community that may be struggling at this time. WE WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY PRIDE MONTH! 🏳️🌈
We have had such a fun week at Springfield Carehome, playing lots of games, colouring in lots of pretty images and enjoying the sunshine by relaxing in the garden.
Residents are enjoying our busy and fun-filled activities timetable which changes weekly!
We have been working hard to make sure our lovely residents have the best dining experience possible and this week, our residents have enjoyed dining in our beautifully and newly decorated dining room.
Springfield Healthcare are launching their 'Springfield are going to Sydney' (virtual challenge) whereby we will collectively cycle/walk/run the distance from our Garforth office to Sydney (10,519 miles)! We are raising money for MIND Charity (who now, more than ever, need our support to ensure that those with mental health problems get the support and respect during and after this emergency) and THE CARE WORKERS CHARITY (who have seen a significant increase in demand at this time and therefore need extra funds to help with this increased demand).
If you would like to donate to these charities please follow the links below https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/springfieldsgoingtosydney to donate to MIND and
https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/springfieldsgoingtosydney2 to donate to The Care Workers Charity
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and this years theme is 'Kindness.' To give kindness is an act of courage, and during this years Mental Health Awareness Week, we are all encouraged to support each other and to reflect on acts of kindness.
Kindness is contagious and one act of kindness can lead to many more! This is the type of community action that inspires others as we discover our connection to each other and extend kindness to ourselves. #KindnessMatters
Kindness is one of our most important values, something central to everything that we do here at Springfield Healthcare. It is with kindness and empathy that we can engage and empower our people and the individuals that we support.
Yesterday, on International Nurses Day, we all shined our lights at 8:30pm in celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale and to show our support for Nurses!
“International Day of the Nurse is particularly special this year not just because we mark the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, but because of the extraordinary work all those who have followed in her footsteps are doing in the fight against coronavirus."
Thank you to all our amazing Nurses!
Happy International Nurses Day!
Today we want to send our sincere thanks to all of the nurses out there! Thank all of our nurses for the vital and selfless work that they have done during these difficult times, and every other day.
We have some appreciation hampers for our care staff to help themselves to in order to celebrate International Nurses Day!
Thank you so much to Tesco, Garforth, who kindly donated this hamper to Springfield Carehome yesterday. Thank you so much for thinking of us at this time, we are really appreciative of your kind gesture!
In recognition of our key workers and all the staff working on the frontline, we are clapping at 8pm every Thursday. Thank you all for your continual commitment and dedication at these challenging times - you’re all amazing. #clapforourcarers #proudtoworkinthecaresector
