The Partnership In Care Spring Eggsperience

This Spring TPIC went Quackers!

From Risby Hall and Risby Park:

They had a visit from the local paper to spread the news of their visitors:


Residents of Risby Park nursing home near Bury St Edmunds had a nice surprise when a group of local toddlers and childminders descended on the home for an Easter Activity Day.

The toddlers were treated to a variety of activities dotted around various areas of the home manned by residents and staff. They made cakes, sang songs, fed ducklings and made sandcastles. The day ended with an Easter egg hunt in the gardens. The toddlers visit the home on a regular basis, the idea inspired by Emma Gibson. Engagement Co-ordinator who once worked as a childminder herself.‘Children are so non-judgemental at that age and accept people for who they are. Most people are living with dementia yet they have so much to offer these children especially love and laughter.’
There is a happy positive energy as soon as the children arrive, they take their coats off and dash to see their adopted grandads and grandmas.
Homes Manager Moira Clare said “this has been such an enriching relationship. It really adds to our homely atmosphere as we have pets running around and then the children come. Residents seem to be transported back to when they had children themselves, their nurturing side comes out and they instinctively know how to ‘play’. The best bit is when the children sing nursery rhymes. Those residents who may not be able to speak , somehow join in and know all of the words! Seeing that is very powerful and can bring a tear to your eye.

Risby Park named their ducks:Digby, Dotty, Daisy, Dilly,Ditzy and Dandy

Risby Hall named their ducklings:Jemima, Donald, Daisy, Daffy, Crispy and Hoisin















From Prince Of Wales House:


One of our spring activities this year has been to hatch some ducklings. 

The eggs arrived on a Tuesday morning and were kept them in their incubator in the activity area so that everyone could keep an eye on the progress.

The cage was set up nearby ready for the new chicks to go into. On the Thursday night the ducklings arrived and we had 5 new babies to look after. The residents have absolutely loved this experience.




From Sherrington House:


On the 21st of March our incredible eggs experience began! We were delivered 6 small duck eggs, an Incubator, a Brooder and Cage.


Over the next few days the residents were able to watch 6 beautiful ducklings hatch and watch them grow into balls of fluffiness. The residents really enjoyed looking after the ducklings and holding them and watching them learn how to swim.


The whole experience is one that everyone really enjoyed and we were really sad to see the ducklings go , however one of our residents family members did adopt two of the six duckling so we will look forward to hearing updates about how they are getting on.

Congratulations to all our 2016 Suffolk Care Awards winners

This is the first year the Suffolk Care Awards have been run, and organisers received more than 200 entries

when they were launched in March 2016. There are 11 different categories recognising the huge variety of care

settings and skills on offer in the adult social care sector which employs around 20,000 people in Suffolk.

After shortlisting the entrants in each category, a team of care sector professional judges – from private and public sector organisations – carried out verification visits.

Winners of the Suffolk Care Awards 2016 were announced at a celebratory evening event at Kesgrave Hall, Ipswich, on September 29th 2016


We are pleased to announce that Prince Of Wales House won the Suffolk Care Awards Team Award.

Well Done to Maxine, Leanne and the POW team. 

The judges said that 'There is a culture of everyone helping one another.

And the team take great pride in their work.

Regular staff meetings concentrate on the positives and not moans and groans.

There are many volunteers in the home, including relatives of people who no longer live there.'

We would also like to congratulate  Beech House and Sherrington House for getting through to the finals.

Raising awareness of Dementia and reducing the stigma attached to it.

During Dementia Awareness Week (15 – 21 May) The Partnership in Care invited local pupils from Brookes Cambridge School (formally Cherry Trees) to meet with our residents and learn about how Dementia affects people and their loved ones. The pupils aged between 7 and 11 performed three songs from their upcoming stage production of 'Olivier', recited poems from Spike Milligan and told jokes; which was greatly received by our residents and staff.

Moira Clare (Quality Services Lead) delivered a training session on Dementia Awareness to the pupils explaining the disease, how it can affect our loved ones and how we can help. The pupils finished by signing up to become Dementia Friends and making their pledges to help those affected in our community and family circles.

A big thank you to all at Brookes Cambridge school for such an enjoyable day.
