Our memories of 2021

Our memories of 2021


As we begin a new year, we’d like to share a selection of some of our favourite memories of 2021. It’s been eventful, despite ongoing Covid restrictions.

We’ve celebrated birthdays, held parties, afternoon teas and taken part in other celebrations. We welcomed Big Picture media and The Sower magazine to take part in a video and photo shoot. We launched our new website, refurbished two kitchens, and welcomed new residents and new members of staff. Our visiting pod continued to be a safe place where loved ones could meet up. And we’ve enjoyed having visits when possible.

While all this was taking place, our staff put on a packed programme of activities for residents to keep them active, healthy and happy. We’d like to take the chance to thank all our staff for their continued dedication and hard work. We would also like to thank families for their support and understanding.

If you are looking for care for your loved ones, give us a call on 01675 434559 to see if St Joseph’s is the right place. We’ll be happy to answer your questions. You can also take a look around by viewing our virtual tour.

Elf Day brings Christmas cheer to residents

Elf Day brings Christmas cheer to residents


The staff team at St Joseph’s Care Home have been putting smiles on residents’ faces and bringing some Christmas cheer.

Staff at the home held an Elf Day on Friday 3 December, in support of their residents and others affected by Alzheimer’s. They donned fantastic costumes for their shifts and made sure each person had a visit from the elves.

The annual event never fails to raise a smile in the run up to Christmas, while also raising awareness and funds for the home.

If you would like to make a donation, you can do so on St Joseph’s JustGiving page.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, which affects around 850,000 in the UK. St Joseph’s offers specialist dementia care, including respite placements. All staff are trained in caring for people living with dementia and are able to provide appropriate activities and care. We also have two memory lounges which are designed to evoke happy memories for residents.
