Across the Springfield Healthcare Group, we have always facilitated compassionate or essential visits which has been very important to us as care providers to support all of our residents and their loved ones with kindness and dignity. We also continue to support a variety of other visits such as window, garden, visitor rooms and in-room visits, to ensure residents can stay connected with their loved ones.
We asked one of our relatives to share her thoughts and experiences of having a loved one in a Springfield residential care home during the pandemic. Click the link below to read more…

Springfield Healthcare’s new initiative continues to put mental health as much a priority as physical health. We have created Mental Health First Aid Boxes for each of our homes to provide resources and support to colleagues who may be struggling with their mental health.
We want to spread awareness and ensure that staff feel able to speak our Mental Health First Aiders, to learn about many different coping mechanisms and to use a range of resources if needed.

What a fun day we had yesterday at Springfield Carehome, with our very first 'Grab Your Passport!' day where residents got to virtually travel to Scotland. Our amazing wellbeing team got into the spirit with their fancy dress and our residents enjoyed trying lots of Scottish food and dancing to Scottish music.
Keep an eye out next month to see where we travel to next... where do you think we will be visiting?
Jean Evans, Kitchen Manager at Springfield Carehome, has baked this football themed cake for one of our lovely residents. He loves football and was absolutely thrilled with this surprise.
Thank you Jean for all your amazing work and for everything you do to make residents feel special.
We would like to wish our lovely resident a very Happy Birthday, love from the Springfield family!
Thank you to all our "Incredible Colleagues at Springfield Care Home" who have gone above and beyond over the last couple of days to ensure the safety of our residents.

We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Marlene, a resident of the Garforth community, who recently sent us 8 boxes of food / snacks for residents and staff to enjoy.
Marlene has previously worked at Springfield Carehome and said that she wanted to give something back to the home to support our staff and residents with these offerings.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Our 'adopt a pet' initiative has been a great idea and residents absolutely loved looking after their own pet.
These pets have been proven to have several benefits to residents living with dementia, essentially providing emotional comfort and a calming presence for residents.
