We celebrated VE Day with afternoon tea and reminiscence sessions. Residents said that they had a lovely time and enjoyed the fresh cream cakes. Thank you to the hospitality and activities teams for organising such a special day for residents.
Our gardening group had a lovely afternoon on Tuesday planting our very own sunflower saplings. They are individually named so we can see who's can grow the biggest flower.
We're super excited to nurture them and watch them grow - stay tuned for more photos!
Residents and staff enjoyed Aprils Grab Your Passport! Day which took us on a trip to 'France'!
We enjoyed some delicious food, lots of fantastic décor and plenty of fun and enriching activities with our wellbeing and activities team!
A wonderful day was had by all and we're excited to see what next months trip holds! Stay tuned..
We had a delivery recently from Harry at Sugar Rush Sweeties, Garforth who we are proud to be working with to keep our sweet trolley stocked with lots of gorgeous sweets.
We asked our residents for suggestions and for their favourite sweets so that we could cater for all. We had lots of suggestions including coconut mushrooms and peppermint creams which were very popular across the home. Harry was able to cater to all our requests!!
The Gentleman on Rydal community enjoyed watching the well-being team restock the sweet trolley and they even got to taste test some of the new sweets!
We look forward to our next delivery - thank you Harry for providing a great service 😀
Congratulations Katie Watts, who has won this months £100 voucher for 'picking up shifts.' Katie regularly picks up extra shifts to help assist the home and is a valuable member of the night team.

Emma, our wonderful Housekeeper, has brought in some toy chefs to put in the dining room! Our residents think they are wonderful and enjoy their mealtimes with our new toy chefs!
Thank you Emma for such lovely and thoughtful gifts! ❤️
Our lovely resident had lots of fun this week making Easter cakes and chatting about what they used to enjoy baking. Residents also received their own Easter treats from the team at Springfield Carehome 🐣✨🐣✨
Our residents have enjoyed spending time in the garden, planting seeds and hanging the bird box that we won in the Springfield Amyrillis competition!
We all had a wonderful bank holiday weekend - we hope you all did too!
On Monday, we designed Easter eggs for a competition that we are having with other Springfield homes for the best decorated egg! We have also been busy making Easter bonnets and participating in Easter themed crafts sessions - residents have had a wonderful time celebrating Easter and we hope you all did too! 🐣✨🐣✨
Thank you to Hazel who is predominately a cleaner at Springfield Carehome but who also works as a carer when required. Over the last 4 weeks, Hazel has done more care shifts than cleaning and this has been invaluable to us at Springfield Carehome. ❤️❤️
Thank you so much Hazel for your continued support and congratulations on winning this months award for 'picking up extra shifts'! 🎉🎈
Springfield Care Home are delighted to have won Springfield's Amaryllis growing competition. Our residents planted the bulbs in February and watched them blossom. They enjoyed looking after, watering and watching the flower grow.
We are thrilled to have won the bird nest box which we cannot wait to use in our garden! Thank you Springfield Healthcare ❤️
We would like to extend a massive thank you to Garforth Medical Centre who attended our home today to vaccinate our residents and staff, some for their first dose and some for their second. We would also like to thank our amazing care team for their support today and to those who came in today on their day off.
We are delighted that more than 90% of our residents and staff have received their first vaccination, with 94% of residents now having received both vaccinations! Thank you to everyone who has been involved in organising today.
