Carecent newsletter – March 2023
Another month has passed and we seem to be getting towards lighter evenings, if only the weather could brighten up!
We have had the lovely Sharon in from Forgotten Feet, tending to our customer feet and making relevant referrals to ensure that they are getting the right support. We have also had Sue back cutting hair – every time Sue comes to us it is always such a humbling experience and shows how important it is that we to provide and facilitate drop-in services like this, that the rest of us take for granted. Someone once said ‘never underestimate the power of a haircut’ and gosh that is true.
Over the last couple of months we have had two Occupational Therapy students with us. They have been helping out during our Thursday afternoon sessions and planned some activities for us to try. This month we have made our own play-dough designs (some less appropriate than others!) and made our own pizzas; some of our customers went more adventurous and made stuffed crust pizzas, we even had a calzones!
In celebration of World Book Day we had homemade scones with clotted cream and jam alongside looking at books and how specific words resonate with different people – we then made the pages of the books into art work.
This year for pancake day we were donated over 100 homemade pancakes – some filled with chocolate, others with blackcurrent jam! They went down a treat. One thing that never fails us, is our customers love something sweet first thing on a morning. The dentist would not be our friend!
Food Hygiene Inspection
We did it!! Over the last 4 months or so we have been waiting patiently for our Inspection, and we are pleased to announce it has been and gone. We had our visit and were scored a 4/5!
The overall feedback was positive, especially considering this is our first inspection since around 2019.
