Thursday Update: See what our residents are getting up to!

Residents at Crowstone House in Westcliff-on-Sea have been blown away by the power of technology! Staff at the home have been arranging for residents to Facetime and Skype their family and loved ones to maintain contact, and they were all very happy.

One resident told a member of staff, “This has really surprised me being able to see my daughter and grandchildren like this. I don’t get to see them often because of school, so to know that this is possible is really great as I want to be able to see them grow up.”

When it was one of Crowstone Houses’ residents’ birthdays, staff wanted to make the day as special as possible due to the current restrictions on visiting.

Staff ventured out to some of the local shops that the resident frequently likes to visit and asked staff to kindly sign a birthday card for her.

When the resident received her card and gifts, she was simply blown away and thoroughly enjoyed her cake and birthday celebrations. Many happy returns!
