Review by Banky (senior support worker): “We started up by customising tops- t-shirts, bags and skirts. We then continued fashion trends on the internet and we did purchase our sewing machine in March 2014.
We had several shopping trips to Ealing Road for fabric shopping. We started checking out different patterns and cutting patterns from magazines.
We trained clients on how to use the tape measurement and the use of sewing machine, and then proceed to learning how to cut fabric. Client made their tops, skirts and dresses from the fabric with staff support. We had the fashion in May 3rd 2014 and it was a success”.

Compliment for the Homecare Department

We proudly would like to share a recently received email…

 

 

Sent: 18 February 2014 19:37

Subject: for attention of Sudbury Hill, Harrow office

 

Dear Sir /Madam,

 

Following a review meeting at last Friday, I’d like to put in writing the points I made at that time regarding two of your carers.

Firstly, you won’t be surprised to hear how happy we are that Pat has returned to work. She is an exceptional carer and has been sorely missed during the last few weeks and months. We feel very lucky indeed to have such a caring and skillful person working with our Mum. Her visits to Mum’s home, make a major difference not just to our Mum but to all of us.

I would also like to mention another carer, Claire, who visited my Mum on a couple of occasions during Pat’s absence.

On one of these visits the thoughtful and calm manner in which she worked, almost certainly prevented a serious incident from occurring. During this visit, Claire reported to her supervisors that she was unhappy about my Mum’s situation. I was alerted to this and Clare would not leave the home until I had arrived and was able to reassure her that I could now manage the situation. During the time that I met Clare I was impressed by the way that she dealt with the problem and then followed it up. She knew exactly what to do, did not overreact and was able to resolve a potentially difficult situation. Claire demonstrated a high level of caring skills.

 

I hope this is useful to you.

 

Yours sincerely,

Geoff Carr

Day Centre Diamond Jubilee celebrations are a great success

Staff and clients alike celebrated the Queen’s diamond jubilee with great gusto on Friday 1st June. With great preparation and anticipation, everyone arrived at the Centre in the spirit of the day dressed jubilantly in red, white, and blue, and enjoyed live music from our resident keyboard player, Kay.

 

 

Movies of the Queen’s early years, her Coronation, and Silver Jubilee were played on large screens throughout the day and all the tables were decorated for a grand luncheon in the honour of the Queen. We had traditional cupcakes with handmade union jacks together with traditional English lunch and drinks.

 

Staff and clients wore crowns, tiaras and sparkling jewellery and clients made union jack flags which they proudly waved throughout the day whilst singing and dancing along to the music.
