Let’s Hear It For The Girls!

Let’s hear it for the girls! We had such an amazing day last Friday for National Women’s Day. The residents had their best dresses laid out for them and hats at the ready. We talked about great women and celebrated with a raised glass of prosecco and posh crisps! We even had some singing entertainment.

All Change!

All Change! It’s been such a busy start to the year, and what an exciting positive time we are having! We welcomed our new manager, Carol, to Summercourt in February and she is finding her way around beautifully. Carol comes to us with loads of experience including working with Devon County Council, CQC and managing […]

Happy New Year!

Its always good to […]

Blooming Lovely Your Community

Blooming lovely Your Community Isn’t this weather beautiful? It’s always nice to have the sun out in Teignmouth but we need to be so careful to make sure everyone is hydrated and cool. We have managed to do this at the same time as short bursts outside to enjoy the garden, and yesterday we welcoming […]

Winners And Losers All At Once!

Winners and losers all at once! OK, so we may not have won Teignmouth Carnival’s ‘It’s a Knockout’… we lost! BUT, we did have a brilliant time and displayed excellent team work, and that’s the important bit! I am so proud of our brilliant staff, they work so hard and always have a smile, even […]
