To all our families and friends

I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the sunshine in a garden during your allocated time out.

At The Hollies the residents enjoyed arts and crafts, and we had a small tea party for one of the resident’s who celebrated a birthday.

Hopefully the roof top garden will be open soon and the sunshine can be enjoyed.

As per Government guidelines we remain closed to all visitors until further notice and all the staff remain positive and professional.

Keep safe all of you.

Dear All Family and Friends

During this time, we are very mindful that lots of families maybe struggling with the lack of contact with loved ones. To keep the lines of communication as open as possible, we have set up a Skype access forum through activities.

Please feel free to email or call me to arrange a 10-minute time slot. Activities@thehollies.co.uk or call 07494408798

We will then be reviewing the situation.

Continued closure 

We would like to thank all residents, families and friends for their continued support in ensuring the best care for all here at the Hollies.

I can confirm that we are all well and no cases of the Coronavirus have been reported.

With Mothering Sunday approaching we will need to maintain our closure for visitation which will also include the delivery of flowers and other goods. Cards received through the post will be fine and very happily delivered.

Please could we ask for you to refrain from deliveries of any non essential items at this time so that we can focus our attention on the important care of the residents and protect the home.

Lorna, our Activities Manager is in the process of setting up Skype and will be in contact with families to book time slots. This will enable a great way to communicate with residents.

We will be posting daily updates to keep you informed.

Thank you
