Celebrating life at Barchester

Whilst the world outside is in uncertain times, safe inside our Barchester homes our residents are carrying on with fun activities and we are joining forces with our local communities to share some cheer. Take a look at what we've been up to...

A Surprise Donation

Team members and residents at Washington Grange received a surprise delivery recently. The local Aldi supermarket donated bread and delicious hot cross buns. Everyone at the home was grateful for this kind gesture and for the great community spirit.

Marriott House

I would like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to yourself and all the other HEROES who are caring for everyone. I hope you are all well and stay safe if that is possible. 

Showing Our Appreciation

Residents wanted to show appreciation to the NHS and care workers and all key workers by creating a poster. It was a lovely morning fill of laughing and smiles throughout.

Cedars Bourne

We hope you are keeping well and thank you for your hard work to keep everyone safe and well. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!

Coffee Morning

We are very pleased to have started a fortnightly doorstep coffee morning with our neighbours at Chater Mews bungalows. We delivered Easter eggs to doorsteps and love chatting from a safe distance.

Rothsay Grange

Thank you for your regular updates. The care of our mother at Rothsay Grange before and during this pandemic has been well managed and compassionate. We would like to convey our thanks to all the staff. 

Staying In Touch

Residents at Kirkburn Court, Peterhead have been hard at work creating cards to send to their loved ones as a surprise. They have decorated the front and written personalised messages on the inside.

Friends of Meadowbeck

Meadowbeck have teamed up with a number of local schools including Osbaldwick Academy and Heworth Primary School as well as young friends from the local community for a newly launched pen pal scheme, connecting residents within their homes with creative writing pupils to help combat social isolat

Friston House

I would like to thank all the staff for looking after my dad whilst he was on memory lane, the care team were wonderful as were the nurses. The Head Housekeeper, Tracey, was lovely, she would often have chats with dad and us when we visited, a big thank you to you all!


You have amazing staff at Glebefields, we cannot thank them all enough

Community Support

This week some wonderful banners were put up in the village of Stamford Bridge, where in better times our residents would enjoy a visit to the coffee shop and local pub.

Stay Home, Stay Home

All of us from Winchester House would like to send good vibes this Easter week to everyone and contribute in telling people to ‘stay at home’. This past few weeks, it's been very hectic and we would like to put smile on people's faces.

Stay Safe!

Residents of Sherwood Lodge have been overwhelmed with messages from their local community.

Westvale House

I would just like to pass on my thanks once again to you and all the team at Westvale for the excellent way in which you have dealt with my mum’s illness over the past few weeks.

Staying in Touch

Residents and colleagues at Woodhorn Park were delighted to receive a beautiful gift from the family of a former resident, which was a small gesture thanking the home for the care shown to their mum, and to residents now during this challenging period.

Corrina Lodge

I just had to contact you all to express my sincere thanks for everything you are doing at this present time. The home have done their utmost to provide care and safety for all of the residents and importantly keeping us informed daily as we are unable to visit.

High Spirits

During these difficult times, we know at Hunters how important it is to keep up morale amongst the residents.

Braeburn Lodge

Well done to everyone. I need to mention Braeburn Lodge in Deeping St James, keeping my mum safe and giving her the best care.
