Come on England!

Across all our homes we've been busy following and supporting England Football Club in their venture into the World Cup.

Residents and staff alike have come together to watch England play each game - sporting England flags, hats and memorabilia.


We were so pleased on Saturday to see England make it into the semi finals for the first time in 28 years - lots of our lovely residents were reminiscing of this time.

We've got our fingers crossed for England on Wednesday - hopefully they'll make it into the finals and bring that trophy home! 

Stay safe in the heatwave

When the sun makes an appearance, it's hard not to make the most of it and get outdoors and enjoy some rays.

The NHS have appealed for everyone to be sun aware and look out for their neighbours, friends and family who may be elderly and need support during the summer months.

Although the heat can be lovely in small doses, it can also cause dehydration, overheating and exhaustion - especially for the elderly who might not be as sun prepared. 

You can be prepared by checking the weather forecast in advance and dressing accordingly, have sun cream to hand and sun cap when necessary. 

Here at Ascot Care, we like to ensure all our residents stay sun safe when enjoying a summer's day outside.

To find out more about how you can stay sun safe, see the NHS' advice.


Ascot Care recognises the Armed Forces

In support of Armed Forces Day 2018 on June 30th, we at Ascot Care want to pledge to continue to support them.

In tribute to the occasion, we plan to host a range of celebratory activities throughout our six North East Homes.

Many of residents once served in the Armed Forces or knew someone who did this. It is an honour to be able to remember and recognise this special occasion with them.

We look forward to continuing to support charities such as Hire a Hero, we help ex Armed Forces personnel once they have served. 


Castleview renovation updates

This year Castleview is undergoing renovations to improve our offer and experience to current and new residents. 

So far brand new windows have been installed throughout the building and they are awaiting the next phase of improvements. 

This will include an extension hosting four bedrooms will be created, two brand new conservatories, rebuilding an existing conservatory and finally move the staff room to the first floor for an even faster response time to clients.
