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.
For National Day of Reflection, Springfield Carehome organised a very special day. We held a minutes silence at 12 noon, followed by a balloon release and the planting of a commemorative bush in the garden so that we will always remember and have a special place to reflect.
This evening, we will also be participating in the 8pm doorstep minutes silence in which we all come together with a light, candle, torch or even your phone, to reflect on our collective loss and to support those who've been bereaved.
Our residents enjoyed our 'knit and natter' session on Saturday with our activities and wellbeing team!
Andrea, our wellbeing assistant, even had some lessons and learnt some tips from one of our residents!
We recently received some letters from our pen pals at Age UK and for our afternoon activity yesterday, our residents enjoyed writing letters back!
Thank you to everyone who has written to our residents over the last few months! ❤

Bingo is one of our favourite activities at Springfield Carehome and therefore part of our weekly activities programme! Our residents love playing with their friends - we even see the competitive side come out in some of them!
Our residents can now talk and hold hands without a screen between them and we're all feeling very emotional today. It has been a wonderful day for our residents who have enjoyed these visits from their loved ones.
We captured these wonderful photos today which was the first time that one of our lovely residents has seen her daughter in many months and the first time they have held hands in almost a year - a truly magical and emotional moment for everyone!
We can't wait for more of our residents to enjoy these more personal visits and to welcome visitors into our home ❤️❤️
We celebrated Employee Appreciation Day by holding a staff giveaway with three prizes up for grabs. We asked colleagues to nominate one another and from these nominations, winners were selected at random.
Congratulations to our winners ...
