January Newsletter from the H&L Estate

Like many, January has been a month to plan for the year ahead, recover from the excitement of Christmas and New Year and take time to think about our health.

We may not have had a dry January, but we have been focused on eating well and in this months blog article, we share details about our approach to providing nutritious meals for our residents.

December Newsletter from the H&L Estate

December has been a very social month, with parties for residents and the team, visits from birds of prey and small furry animals, but the highlight was definitely Santa and Mrs Claus arriving on the H&L Elf Express during Christmas Week, to deliver our gifts.

The homemaking team have been absolutely amazing, bringing Christmas cheer into both homes, whilst being sensitive to the needs of those for whom this time of year can be difficult being away from family.Christmas day in a residential care home

Looking back over the highlights of 2023, it is inspiring to see all the fun outings and activities which have taken place, the delicious food prepared by the catering team and what a fantastic place the Estate is for our residents to live.

November Newsletter from the H&L Estate

With the Christmas festivities about to get underway, it was time for some early gift shopping and to restock the decorations at Huntington House.  Charlie headed to Godalming College, to help the next generation of Health and Social Care Students expand their learning.

We honoured those who lost their lives in the line of duty this month, with displays of poppies around the grounds and the sales of knitted poppies, kindly made by Sarah.

The ladies of Huntington House enjoyed a morning of manicures and chat earlier in the month. Now the weather isn't so warm to explore the Estate the homemaking team have been planning a number of new indoor activities with the residents for the winter months.

October Newsletter from the H&L Estate

Creating an environment where everyone has the opportunity to indulge in their hobbies, passions or simply head out to their favourite day trip spot, is at the heart of our approach to care and we always extend this to include friends and family to create shared experiences and special interactions.

That's certainly been this case throughout October here on the Estate
