Hi Lisa,
Thank you for your thoughts and suggestions :0)
I would like to say that Brabyns is already 'twinned' with All Saints Primary and the staff and children have already made several visits which the residents have thouroughly enjoyed (as have the staff of Brabyns)
We hold poetry competitions that the children create and then the residents choose an overall winner and give a small prize.
It is nice to hear that others agree with my view that once a person is living in a 'residential care setting'  it is of great importance to retain a connection within the homes wider community and with the younger generations.
Thanks again for your suggestions :0) Debra

Debra... Why not ring the local schools up.. most have choirs and marple hall has a variety of dancy type groups (!!) Excellent way of getting the young people of Marple to interact with the old.. and maybe swap some stories too

I would take no notice Debra , you do not need to apologise or clarify anything.
I'm not up to no good, it only looks as though I am!     8)

Well .... I think I really really need to clarify a thing or two !  :)
Firstly as the activities and events co coordinator I can 100% confirm that Brabyns does indeed run a full and varied entertainment program for all of its residents which is included in their residential fees and infact we often hold events that are open (and free! ) to all family and friends of our residents.
The truth is we are a very inclusive home and pride ourselves on our 'Brabyns family' ethos.
My request for local volunteer talent was not in any way a means of getting 'cheap' activities for the home but simply and honestly a way to perhaps extend the local connections the homes residents have with people who still live in the area in which many grew up and love.
As for comments on the staffs wages I think that most people are fully aware that care workers are very often on wages that do not reflect the level of hard work and commitment needed to undertake such roles.
To end.....I apologise if my request has offended anybody as stated I was really just trying to establish local links with people lucky enough to live within the area alot of our residents still love.
I would like to say I for one appreciate the hard work all the carers do 24 hours a day .
And finally I would like to thank the supportive messenger :0)
Debra .

any one who goes into brabyns house will tell you what a good job debra does,  i know the fees are high but when you take into account  how brilliant the staff are  its money well spent, all debra was asking for originally was if any one wanted to display their talents.
Oh I didn't know Brabyns House staff were paid more money than other residential homes care staff ?  Sorry I take all what I said back ?  :-\
BECAUSE IT CONCERNS ME, MINE AND OTHERS !!!!!

Well ......I always thought that Marple would have a real community spirit and loads of talent  lol !
I posted a message ages ago asking if anyone had any 'talent' that they could come and share with the residents at Brabyns House Care Home and guess how many volunteers I got ? NONE!
So..... if you can flower arrange, dance, know alittle about the history of the area. play an instrument or simply tell a good story please please get in touch :0)
Remember for many residents an hour with a new face can be the highlight of their day :0) Thanks Debra
