Sit down Yoga
We tried our hands at something a bit different recently - sit down yoga. Relaxing music and gentle exercise to help with confidence and balance on our feet. Any movement big or small helps with the confidence of remaining mobile. We embraced it, and had a few little giggles! It was a lovely way to spend a Friday morning.
Christmas at Waterloo House
We had a lovely Christmas here at Waterloo House. With the decorations up, we had a special Christmas lunch with all the trimmings and lots of presents exchanged.
As the Coronavirus restrictions start to ease, we are continuing with our robust and comprehensive infection control procedures to assure the health, safety and well-being of our residents and staff.
All staff will continue to be tested weekly using PCR testing, as well as twice a week using LFD test kits.
Visit from a local pre-school
We were lucky to have a visit from children from a local pre-school recently. They sang a few songs to our residents and then helped in the garden. We planted some seeds for them to take home to see who can grow the tallest bean stalk, the children or the residents...watch this space to see how it goes!
We had such a lovely time celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee at Waterloo House. We had decorations, our very own indoor-street party with delicious food, and even a visit from the Queen herself!
Following the recent change in government guidance, we are delighted to announce that we are able to offer increased visiting. However, please bear with us as we get our visiting areas prepped. We want to make sure we keep Covid out of Waterloo House. Please call the home on 01673 842 343 to book your visiting slot.
Meet Bessie and Pauline our resident champions here at Waterloo House.
Pauline is originally from Caistor and Bessie Market Rasen. Both ladies bring so much laughter to our home.
As resident champions Pauline and Bessie talk, listen and bring forward any ideas from themselves or other residents.
Halloween at Waterloo
We've had a busy Halloween at Waterloo House. We've had several craft sessions including pumpkin carving and making our own spooky masks. We also held a Halloween Afternoon Tea in the dining room, specially decorated for the occasion, with spooky-themed home-made treats.
Making Butterfly feeders
We turned our hand to crafting today to make these beautiful butterfly feeders. It was a fun activity for those who chose to take part. The finished products have been installed outdoors in the flower beds where they have already started attracting butterflies to the garden.
Latest Visiting Guidelines
We have received updated guidelines from Helen Whately MP - Minister of State for Care.
At this time visitors will be asked to continue to book appointments, take a test on the day of their visit
to the care home, wear a mask throughout their visit, wash hands thoroughly on arrival, and
limit close contact with residents. All staff, residents and visitors should be encouraged and
supported to get the vaccine as soon as they are able.
