At the beginning of May Eileen announced that she was going to retire after 14 years at Willan House. We wish her well, she plans to do her garden, rest and generally enjoy her hobbies. She will be greatly missed by staff and residents. Sue has also decided to retire. Although they will both be hard acts to follow we have managed to recruit to replace them!
Sadly in May two residents died. Both these residents were big characters and have been part of Willan House for a number of years. Our thoughts are with their families as they mourn their loss and we are pleased that they regarded Willan House as their home.
Craft sessions have been going well, with Val and Clare. Residents have been weaving and creating wool wrap pictures. There has also been a hive of industry producing yards of bunting and red white and blue paper chains for the Jubilee weekend.
We have welcomed some new faces for day care now that Linelands has finally closed. The respite bed is fully booked in June, and with only a few days left in July. Phone for more information.
