We opened our doors on April 18th of this year and welcomed our first residents on the same day. Having been in the home for a while beforehand, recruiting and training staff, overseeing the finishing touches it was a fabulous feeling to greet our new residents and to show them around their new home.
This week we celebrated 100 days since we opened, and we celebrated it in style. We have already done so much, we've planted trees to improve the landscape and leave our legacy, we've held a summer fayre, a strawberry fayre, we've quizzed, we've baked, and we've had a wonderful time doing all of it.
We certainly didn't want to let our 100-day landmark pass by without recognising and acknowledging the wonderful team and the way that they have come together, supported each other and worked tirelessly to make Glenvale Park a fabulous place to live.
The current tropical weather here in the UK gave us the inspiration to hold a tropical, Hawaiian style party. We had costume, grass skirts and the obligatory leis. We hired a fantastic singer who wowed everyone and had the team and residents all up dancing. There were cocktails, tasty food and a real party atmosphere.
We used the event as a chance to reward staff, announcing our "Halcyon Heroes" and handing out prizes and certificates.
We are lucky to have the fabulous team we have here at Glenvale, the building is beautiful, the food top class but it's the team that make this home what it is.
