Windlesham In Bloom –
We are very proud of the grounds at Windlesham Manor and
work hard to create a beautiful garden that can be enjoyed
by our Residents throughout every season, but it really does
look exquisite in summer!
Many of our Residents are keen gardeners and members of
The Windlesham Manor Gardening Club. They take great
pride in tending to the varied, extensive garden.
Inspired by a Resident who was a member of The Land Army
in WW11 our Gardner has created a brand new vegetable
patch and we are digging for victory! We have also stocked
our greenhouse with lots of raised, easily accessible planters.

Mother’s Day Celebrations –
In these unusual circumstances all the stops were pulled
out to ensure our Residents had an extra special day. Our
hands on staff spent a lovely afternoon celebrating our
lovely ladies. Head Chef Martin made the most amazing
afternoon tea, which was of course accompanied by
bubbles! We chatted, laughed and played games to
include charades, which was lots of fun…who knew we
had such undiscovered talented actors in our midst!
In addition to the lovely messages, cards and gifts our
residents received by post from their families, we gifted
each resident flowers and chocolates and one of our
Carers’s young daughters Ishbelle made each and every
lady their own special, handmade card. Thank you
Ishbelle, it was so thoughtful of you!

360 Birthday Party –
Four of our lovely ladies have turned 90, and we held a joint, ‘360’ birthday party to mark the special occasion. The ladies choose a 1950s tea dance theme. As a treat we hired a specialist vintage hairdresser to pamper our ladies and make them feel special.
Our head Chef Martin rustled up some delicious, traditional favourites for our street party lunch,

Happy New Year –
We thought we would start the new year by providing you with a little ‘behind the scenes’ information about our ongoing training, development and improvements.
At Windlesham we pride ourselves on our person centred approach, and have invested in online software that allows us to do just that. All individual care plans are now electronic and can be accessed and added to with ease by all staff members. It is safer, clearer and efficient, allowing us more time to focus on our residents.
We maintain our highly qualified staff skills by continued development. This month alone we have a fire drill workshop, dignity workshop & reminiscence training.

Christmas Party – We certainly ate, drank and were merry at our Christmas
Sarah, Kim and the team decked the halls beautifully. The tables adorned the fabulous floral displays made by our residents and the personalised place settings made by Sarah all added to the warm, family feel of the occasion.
Chef Martin certainly didn’t disappoint with another spectacular Christmas feast! A beautiful roast with all the trimmings and a mouthwatering array of desserts!

Our Amazing Animal World – Our Residents love their monthly visit from, ‘Our Amazing Animal World.’
This month we met Mika the Meerkat, Beryl the bald and beautiful Rat & cute and cuddly Bridgette the Rabbit. We are proud to invite Our Amazing Animal World to Windlesham. All the animals are rescue animals (some
with very sad stories). The handlers are passionate about their welfare and the joy they can bring with their fun, educational and hands on experience.
They definitely bring a smile to our Residents faces. We can’t wait to see who they will bring along next month!
