Dignity in Care Champions !!

The Vicarage Court Care home supports the Dignity in Care campaign. The care home now has numerous staff who are Dignity in Care Champions. The aim is to ensure best practice in care and enhance the dignity of the residents.

After the Easter party, plans are in place for a Dignity week, which will include a series of activities to enhance the Dignity of Residents and allow the residents to celebrate their many skills and talents in a fun and educational format.

More details to be released soon….




Special dedication message to Gwen Matthewman…

This is a special dedication message for Gwen Mathewman, who was cared for over a considerable time at Vicarage Court Care home. It is rare for us to ever mention a specific residents name on here, but as Gwens life has been covered so extensively in BBC and around the world, we felt her exceptional talents should be mentioned.

Gwen sadly passed away recently. She was a World record holder in knitting and could do over 100 stitches a minute. Her talents allowed her to travel the world and she was a celebrity in Japan and many countries. She even knitted jumpers for American Astronauts.

She will be missed by all staff and management.

Below is the BBC tribute to this exceptional local lady.
