Chestnut View Care Home in Haslemere, had a wonderful time when the community came together to show they all care.
Children from Camelsdale Primary School dropped in and presented a wonderful harvest festival hamper to manager Simon Lloyd MBE. Guests from the community, residents, their families and staff all raised their glasses to commemorate the opening of the residents beautiful, newly re-designed ground floor, which offers access to a newly landscaped garden. The Ribbon was cut by Haslemere’s Town Mayor Councillor John Robini.
New home manager Simon Lloyd MBE said “ Today holds special significance for me, as it is my first event in the home since joining the Chestnut View family and this event has provided me with the opportunity to spend time with all the lovely residents and meet many of their families, along with the people of Haslemere’s community, who care”.
The new facility now features a delightful bright dining room and lounge opening onto a sensory garden. The new layout has provided the opportunity for residents to enjoy the open space at their leisure and the raised beds have created easy access for those living at Chestnut view to be more involved in the garden project. Activity lead Zieta Morrison said “we have many talented people living at the home with so much knowledge about gardening, it is lovely to be able to work together in creating a garden from scratch, which incorporates old and new ideas. Due to the rain, sadly we couldn’t be outside today. We didn’t let it dampen our spirits, we thought having a Halloween theme display in the reception of the home would be fun, we enjoyed creating it together. When the weather improves, we intend to create many more themes in the garden going forward. You never know next year we might even enter South and South East in Bloom competition!.”
Chestnut View Care Home offers both long and short term stays for people with Nursing needs and Dementia Care.
