Chollacott thoroughly enjoyed their garden party to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee with a lovely display of sunshine and decorations.
Staff and residents came together in the lounge to observe the 2 minute silence and then had tea and cakes followed by a fun game of balloon bat and ball in very patriotic colours whilst listening to and singing along to Dame Vera Lynne.
Hendra Farm brought an amazing selection of animals to visit staff and residents at Chollacott House in Tavistock. The residents absolutely loved the experience. I’m not sure I would have been quite so enthusiastic about having a snake on my lap!
Chollacott House and the Drake Unit in Tavistock, have a new manager! Having comprehensively seen off some experienced external competition, we are really pleased to have appointed Barbara Kader to the position of Care Home Manager. Barbara has worked at Chollacott House for over 20 years. We all wish her the very best in her new hard-earned position.
Wonderful to see so many people (and cakes!) at the Chollacott House coffee morning earlier today. Thank you, Barbara and team, for organising such a successful event.
Chollacott House in Tavistock are feeling fully festive after a visit from the Bellringers of Horrabridge Primary School in Yelverton.
Staff and residents at Chollacott House and Drake enjoyed a wonderful fireworks display last night, from the warmth and comfort of the conservatory, whilst listening to ‘The Phantom of the Opera.’ Butternut squash and Chili Soup was served, followed by Parkin, a cake inextricably linked to the Guy Fawkes celebration, with the ‘Parkin’ being representative of the bonfire.
Throwing open the doors to the newly decorated ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed dining room, Chollacott House and guests raised £313.50 at the MacMillan Biggest Coffee Morning today. Well done Elaine and team!

Chollacott House resident come garden designer, Louise, has transformed the garden at the Drake Unit. By carefully selecting plants, flowers, shrubs and trees, she has created a wonderful scented, colourful, and peaceful place for residents and their visitors to enjoy. Fruit trees, sunflowers, tomatoes, runner beans, courgettes, lilacs, lavender – are all thriving in this little suntrap, with a draped sail providing shade from the midday sun. She has also created a willow canopy over a pretty wooden bench, again offering shade and privacy. Thank you Louise!
