Sheila’s Singing Her Praise for Sundridge Court
What was the moving in experience like?
“The move was extremely easy. Sundridge was not far from where I lived, so I had the support of close friends and family during the move” explained Sheila.
The team at Sundridge Court, were helpful, friendly and welcoming. They spend time getting to know a resident and learning as much as possible about the people they are caring for to make a smooth transition.
How are you settling in at Sundridge Court?
Sheila is very sociable and has joined in with many activities with other residents and staff. She loves playing a game of carpet bowls or sitting in the conservatory, where there this a view of the beautiful garden to watch the birds and admire nature!
Since moving in to Sundridge Court, Sheila is happy and comfortable, especially at tea-time, as she loves her tea and sugary biscuits! “I might be diabetic, but I am always keen on something sweet like cakes and ice cream”.
“I love to sing, especially the classics and I like to encourage the other residents to join in, often leading a reminiscing session!” Sheila’s favourite song to sing is the classic Que Sera Sera by Doris Day!
What advice would you give other care seekers and their families?
Sheila is loving her new life at Sundridge and would advise anyone thinking of moving into a care home to consider what is important. “I think my secret to long life is food, good health and a nice big fire! Being kind and loving to one another is important and is exemplified by the team at Sundridge”.
Freestyle Poem by Sheila Baldwin
I do it well and hope to find,
All the things you might like,
You ought to get me going,
because all this wind is blowing,
Oh a cup of tea, however so kind!
Oh! I spilled some!
I hope you don’t mind!
