“Yesterday, Redcroft hosted its annual summer garden party and BBQ which featured an aviary professional delivering a live display with his barn owl, ‘Biscuit.’
Both Summerwood and Apple house also attended with invitations having been sent to the families of those whom we support across the three homes.
This event offered a fantastic opportunity for residents and their families to socialise in their home in a relaxed, familiar environment and also to have the chance to meet new people and to build new friendships. It was also a chance to show their families all the personal touches that they have added to truly make Redcroft their home.
Families also had the opportunity to view Redcroft’s new monthly activities photo board which provides a visual display of special events or activities that their relative has been involved in that month, which could be anything from recent trips to Paultons Park and Stables Summer Fayre to action shots from tennis coaching classes and pet therapy sessions.
This event really did help foster a sense of community and openness between homes and families that the company prides itself on, and to build on and further develop the close relationship that Redcroft enjoys with people who are so important to residents – their friends and families.”
