St Ronans News Letter         March 19

Trixie’s Blog

How wonderful to feel a touch of Spring with this Gorgeous sunshine and daffodillies nodding!! The warmest winter ever apparently!

Our back garden has been swept and pruned and now looking almost ready for Residents to sit out with their families and enjoy their coffee and biscuits~such a treat after a long winter.

We continue to have a good entertainment all week and a good Sing Song. Also our Quiz lady Mandy is very popular and our Residents have such good knowledge making this a very exciting hour.

At the end of February was our “Oscars” afternoon with luxury nibbles. It was a great success with our Residents being awarded an Oscar for outstanding achievements either during their lives or here at St Ronans.

Such excitement and we even had a “Red Carpet"!

Thank you to Peter Gleeds family Derek and Julie for all the wonderful things you bring us and just for coming to share our days. So much appreciated xxx

Our lovely vicar Bob still comes regularly to give communion and individual blessings and the Residents love that.

Huge thank you’s for all your continuous and loving support-it means a great deal to us. Please continue to write feedback forms and pop them into Matron’s brown box in the lobby where you sign in.

With my love and blessings.

Trixie xxx


CQC Inspection

Our latest CQC report states that some areas require improvement.

Our report can be found by following the CQC link on our website

As you know, at St Ronans, we believe in constant improvement.  Mistakes and lapses happen to us all, sometimes when under scrutiny – so be it, and we are mortified. But, we have already taken action to remedy the issues highlighted in the report. We are still the home you love and trust, and believe we are even better now. Please contact us to see what we have achieved.
