Wellness Wednesday with protein bars for staff at Bromley Park Care Home 1

Our fantastic staff at Bromley Park Care Home spend their lives caring for our wonderful residents and are doing an amazing job through the pandemic.

Our Manager Khadija is always looking for ways to support her team and has recently been focused on wellbeing and making sure her staff look after themselves. She is keen to start ‘Wellness Wednesday‘ at her Home, to focus on good health and hydration amongst her staff on an ongoing basis.

Protein bars from Bidfood

Nellsar’s Director of Operations Glenda Osmotherly and Nutrition and Wellness Manager Leni Wood have been liaising with Jaime Carpenter, Regional Account Executive at Bidfood who has kindly arranged a donation of 750 Eat Natural protein bars to our Homes for our staff.

These tasty protein bars help sustain energy and support blood sugar balance – perfect for our hard working teams. They have already been sent out to Bromley Park and Princess Christian Care Home.

Khadija was thrilled to be able to give out the bars to all her colleagues to enjoy. As you can see, they went down very well! A huge thank you to Bidfood for this generous donation.

Explaining the ‘Wellness Wednesday’ idea, Khadija commented;

“Wellness Wednesdays are dedicated to looking at things that are feasible – changes we learn in our Home we can take back to our lives outside. For example, an apple and ginger shot in the morning before a shift, less sugar intake such as chocolate bars, instead having a protein bar. Other things we will discuss is water intake, as fluid and keeping hydrated is key. Sleep too – how can we wind down when getting home, as often staff sleep really late due to not being able to wind down.”

Fitness focus

Khadija is also organising some boxercise classes for her team with Ifie Porter, a professional boxer with a proven amateur track record and ABA champion for many years.

As soon as restrictions are eased, Ifie will come to Bromley Park to help boost the wellbeing and fitness of the team, giving fitness instruction onsite, but also showing exercises that are doable at home.

So watch this space!

Back in February we reported that Bromley Park Care Home would be working with Biggin Hill Memorial Museum to help them make some poppies for the 75th anniversary of VE Day, which would be displayed in their Chapel.

Sadly, the pandemic has interfered with some of these plans, but our residents have helped our staff make a lovely poppy wreath – we think you’ll agree it’s a beautiful tribute to those who have lost their lives in wartime.

Our Facilities Manager Donna Hough delivered the wreath this morning to Biggin Hill where she met the Director of the museum, Katie Edwards and her lovely dog.

She was delighted with the wreath and will be displaying it in the Chapel for the service on 11 November.

We are all looking forward to visiting the museum again when lockdown is lifted and will be enjoying more poppy crafts this week, as our residents love to be involved with them.

We had a super time on Saturday 5 September at Bromley Park Care Home when we came together to enjoy our summer party.

Usually an event like this would be buzzing with all our lovely relatives and friends, but this year was a little different, with Government guidance concerning social distancing.

However, we didn’t let this stop the fun! Our residents thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with live musical entertainment from Atlantis, who performed a fantastic set of songs from the last six decades and really gave our Home a great atmosphere.

We also tucked in to a lovely spread of delicious food and cakes throughout the party.

Good times!
