We have been short-listed AGAIN as a national finalist for the Care Home Awards for Best for Nutrition, Food and the dining experience!


we will keep you posted live from the awards on Thursday 27th June in the Platinum Suite at ExCel, London.


on the plus side we could win, the down side is we are going to need a bigger awards wall at this rate.....

My name is Martin


I live in at the close care home

Where I feel safe with help when I need it which is a great comfort to me.

I join the music activities within the home and the odd quiz

A walk in our large garden I find very relaxing followed by a coffee or cold drink in the Bistro where I always have a lovely greeting.

I look forward to my weekly chat to my son on skpe in the library so I can have privacy while talking to my son so nice to see him on the screen while catching up with his daily life in Australia

My family and friends visit me regularly which is always a happy occasion.

Thank you for reading my Blog
