Jamie qualifies

Birch Green Care Home’s Jamie Matthews has qualified to become an assistant practitioner.


Jamie, one of Birch Green’s team leaders, joined the home six years ago and since then has steadily progressed. She has spent the last two years studying for the qualification and has passed with flying colours.


Mike Lakins, head of learning and development for the Springhill Care Group, said: “This is a fantastic result not only for Jamie but for the Springhill Care Group.


“We always support staff to achieve their career aspirations and to take full advantage of the training opportunities on offer - well done Jamie, this is truly deserved.”


What a fantastic achievement for Jamie who has worked to see all her hard work and commitment pay off.


Congratulations from everyone at Birch Green.


Solving puzzles at Birch Green

Recently we had a fun puzzle day at Birch Green.


Some of our ladies joined the lifestyle team in adding some colour to black and white puzzles, which we then cut into jigsaws and shared with everyone to help us to solve them.


Teamwork was the name of the game and everyone worked hard together.


Fun in the sun at Birch Green

Recently we put on our sun cream and summer hats and made the most of the glorious weather.

Our ever-popular lunch club was enjoyed outside in our garden – there’s nothing better than lunch al fresco, and in true Birch Green style we finished the afternoon with a good old sing-song.


Celebrating our nurses

Birch Green Care Home celebrated the work of its staff to mark National Nurse Week.


This week also saw National Nurse Day, and Florence Nightingale’s birthday. So to show their appreciation, Birch Green presented its nurses with a little thank you token – a personalised fob watch.


We’d all like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to all our nurses for the fabulous job they all do.


Easter weekend at Birch Green

Residents and staff enjoyed a fantastic Easter weekend with a range of seasonal activities.


Highlights included Easter bonnet parades, afternoon tea for friends and family members, and breakfast surprises from the Easter bunny.


We also spent time relaxing in the beautiful weather we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy over the last week.
