The Beast from the East

Crecy is situated just on the outskirts of Weymouth and being on the coast very rarely experiences snow but with the help of “Storm Emma” things were certainly different at the beginning of March This was Weymouth Harbour side on 2nd March; normally a busy place where people stop and have a coffee was deserted Chesil Beach which links Portland to Weymouth was covered in a blanket of snow This is normally a small lake between Dorchester and Weymouth but it was turned into an ice rink And Weymouth Beach was more likely to see snowmen instead of sandcastles!

Outstanding Crecy

The news we were all waiting for “OUTSTANDING”. The full report can be read on the Care Quality Commission Website. Letters of thanks and a little something to celebrate with were handed out to all members of staff by Simon Luckhurst, Operations Manager.

A beautiful poem from the wife of a Resident at Gainsborough Care Home

You've been the love of my life for 50 plus years 
We've had laughter, joy and just a few tears
We have travelled a lot
Been here and there
And on the whole life was quite fair
Until the day you had your first stroke
I was scared and worried — it was no joke
Then Mr. Alzheimers entered our life
You didn't even know that I was your wife
You got progressively worse, your mind went blank
You couldn't remember things and to be frank

Compliments for Good Care

Today we held one of our Agincare Homes Holdings bi-monthly Manager Meetings & Development Days.
