Treats galore in Royal Star & Garter thank you to caring staff

CULINARY treats, massages and a Caribbean party were the order of the day as care staff at Royal Star & Garter in Solihull have enjoyed a week of treats, pampering and a lot of TLC.

They relaxed with neck and foot massages, mindfulness and tai chi, and enjoyed healthy smoothies and snacks.

They also took part in a treasure hunt and put their detective skills to good use in an interactive murder mystery.

These were just some of the events and activities, which took place during the Solihull Home’s Staff Appreciation Week which concluded with staff enjoying a Caribbean-themed party and buffet with residents.

Royal Star & Garter is a charity which provides loving compassionate care to veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia.

Several of the events took place in the evening, to ensure night staff did not miss out.

Home manager Cheryl Harbourne said: “We did this to show our staff how much we appreciate them. After what has been an incredibly difficult time they deserve to be spoilt.”

Carly, lead health care assistant at the Home, said: ”We had so much fun all week, it really lifted staff morale. We are lucky we have such a lovely working environment.”

Royal Star & Garter’s Homes in Surbiton and High Wycombe have held well-being weeks for their staff.
