Bonsai trees grow on us at Springhill Care Home

on .

Accrington and District Bonsai Society came in to Springhill Care Home to show specimens of their bonsai trees and delivered an interesting presentation about how they are grown and kept.


It was a very interesting afternoon, we learned lots and hope they will come again in the future.




Warm welcome for Riversway’s new arrivals

on .

Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol welcomed a fluffy bundle of joy recently as one of the chicks they’ve been caring for finally hatched.


The first baby bird, who they’ve named Larry, was born – much to everyone’s delight – and the others are still in the incubator where anyone can come and take a look.


The eggs were supplied by an organisation called Incredible Eggs, an ethical provider of hatching kits, and once born the chicks will head to a farm in the South West.


We can’t wait to say hello to Larry’s brothers and sisters.



A roaring day out with the Rovers

on .

A great day was had by all when a small group from Springhill Care Home in Accrington set off for Ewood Park, Blackburn, to see the Rovers play Stoke City.


Wishes came true after they discovered a number of Rovers fans in their midst, and Victoria Huntriss, Wellbeing Lead at Springhill Care Home contacted the club who very kindly donated complementary tickets that meant some of their residents could attend the game.


They went with “Oomph” in their specially adapted van, had seats reserved when they arrived and had a great view of the game and they got to enjoy delicious pies during the game as well!



A disappointing score as Rovers lost 1-0 but a memorable day trip out.




The Rose of Parbold

on .

Residents from Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale made the most of the recent sunshine and set sail on board a canal boat.


A trip on the Rose of Parbold is always a popular choice for residents, and along the way they spotted Olive’s son, David, having stroll along the tow path. Olive, one of our residents, was delighted to see him.


After a lovely lunch, the group sang all the way back home with Mary leading them on vocals.


Birch Green would like to thank the staff of the Rose of Parbold for such a lovely day, and they’ll see you for their next trip, planned for September.

Springhill Care Home announces partnership with Relaxation Practitioners

on .

Springhill Care Home in Accrington are excited to announce a partnership with “The Relaxation Practitioners”.


They will be delivering a complementary therapy service, funded by Springhill Care Home, delivering a type of therapy called the M-Technique. This treatment can be life enhancing and will include individuals who may not able to attend other planned activities that are available each day.


The M-Technique is a light pressure touch technique that is delivered like massage. It is often described as a ‘spiritual dance’ on the skin which encourages a calm, soothed mind. The ‘M’ Technique is designed to put the touch back into care and is suitable for individuals when other conventional therapies are not. The therapy can aid relaxation and improve wellbeing, giving them an overall feeling of well-being and belonging. 


The company's ethos is not just about providing ‘therapy’ but also about holding conversations, connecting and making a difference to enhance quality of life.  Individuals who meet the criteria for treatment will begin sessions in April. People can access six consecutive sessions in any one period.


The Relaxation Practitioners are professional practitioners who hold nationally recognised qualifications in complementary therapies and are self-regulated by governing bodies such as the Federation of Holistic Therapists.


The Relaxation Practitioners may also be able to provide privately funded therapy. For any further information, please speak to a member of the Lifestyles Team who will be able to discuss this in more detail
