Olive, resident of Dove Tree House in Exeter, had a great day celebrating her 103rd Birthday! She didn’t want much fuss but enjoyed a few glasses of sherry ( her favourite tipple!) and wowed on the karaoke with her version of ‘My Way’. Four generations of her family joined her for tea Birthday cake. Happy Birthday Olive!
Children from Discovery Nursery in Exeter visted the residents at Dove Tree House in their Christmas jumpers on Friday, for singing and festive fun. The nursery visits every year at Christmas time, and the residents love it!
Always lovely to get feedback from our residents like this from Dot at Dove Tree House:
‘If I’d known how nice it was, I would have come sooner!’
Here she is playing the bones.
Today Stonehaven Care Group are at the Exeter Care & Healthcare Jobs Fair at the Guildhall. If you are looking for a career in Care, and would like to work in one of our Exeter homes – The Lilacs, Dove Tree House and The Manor (Exminster) – pop along and have a chat with us – we’re here from 10am until 2pm.
Although lovely to see the snow in Devon (a rare thing!) it has presented challenges for many. Thank you to all of our care teams for going above and beyond, to keep our residents safe, warm and well-fed during the past few days. Many people were stranded at work, so kindly stayed to work shifts that others (trapped at home!), were unable to cover. I’m always overwhelmed by the kindness, generosity and selflessness of people in times of need. Thank you, you lovely people!
Dove Tree House in Exeter held a Christmas Party for residents, family, friends and staff on Friday afternoon. A huge raffle, where everyone won a prize(or two), fun party games, a wonderful spread of food and Christmas karaoke led by Keith and Jake, the home’s chefs! Over £150 was raised for the residents fund. Well done all at Dove Tree xx
Really enjoying the Halloween photos that have been sent to me at Support Office this morning! It looks like a lot of fun was had at Dove Tree House in Exeter, with residents, staff and family members all getting into the spirit (pun!), with amazing costumes, pumpkin carving, spooky games and terrifying food!
On Sunday, the ladies of the Stonehaven Support Office took part in the Muddifords Court Cheese Run in aid of the Exeter Dementia Action Alliance. 180 people ran or walked the route from Burlescombe Village, along the beautiful Great Western Canal Path, to Muddifords Court Country House, where they enjoyed a family fun day! Bouncy castles, face painting, live music, cheese toasties and beer. It was a fantastic day, the sun shone and all the money raised went to the Exeter Dementia Action Alliance.
Today saw the Grand Opening of Ye Olde Bubble & Sweet Shop at Dove Tree House in Exeter. Residents and their visitors will be able to purchase sweets, snack, toiletries, magazines, puzzle books and so much more. And I believe their Christmas stock is due in any day now! Resident Barbara officially opened the shop, which is located in the home’s Ballroom on the first floor, by pulling the ribbon (because cutting it would have been a shame, quite frankly). Good luck – I am sure you’ll do a roaring trade!
