Spring 2016
Young Visitors

Our young visitors Angus (2 ½) and his brother Rufus (1 ½) continue to visit us weekly. We had a great tea party with them out in the garden on the first sunny, warm day of the season, with at least 8 residents out soaking up the rays!

Biscuit Band Project

Thanks to our Biscuit Band project, we’ve been enjoying the company in the lounge of both young and old new faces, and some not so new. As well as welcoming in children and their parents we’ve also managed to reunite Pam Squires with several old friends she hasn’t seen for many years. Band leader Hugh from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has enabled us to make some fabulous music together – seriously! With the help of some talented musicians including trombone, guitar, flute and saxophone we’ve sounded just great. The glockenspiel in particular has been a great hit.

Day Trip out to Living coasts

Our trip to Living Coasts in Torquay was a big success: here is Rita meeting the penguin colony. We later spotted an octopus and came face to face with some friendly fur seals! Thanks to Peter and Lesley, Denny and Margaret and Clare Turque and Tamsin for accompanying us on our trips it was a brilliant day all round.

Easter Bonnet Competition

At Easter we held an Easter Bonnet Competition, judged by June Wood ‘Ashburton lady of the hats’. Juliet won and Edie and Lis were well deserved runners up. Special mention has to be made for Denny and Margaret Piper for their incredible efforts!

New Feathered Arrivals

After a game of Budgie Bingo, Juliet and Pam Squires christened our new budgies ‘Piet’ (our green male) and ‘Bella’ (our blue female). Edie and Bill came to choose them and bring them home and they are getting lots of loving attention.

Vegetable Mania

We’ve got herbs, peas and tomatoes as well as some lovely Black Eyed Susans and will be getting Lynn’s dad, star gardener Terry Underhill to give us some advice on our planting activities. Look out for posters advertising the date.

In the Night Garden

Residents have been enjoying the soft glow of butterflies and dragonflies solar lighting out in the garden as the night draws in and Fay has also installed lots of colourful windmills in the garden as part of our garden revamp for Spring.

Meet Our Home Manager

Registered Manager – Tracey Meloy

“I started my career in care in 1997. I worked for 2 years in a residential home in Suffolk. In 2000 I moved on to work for the NHS on a care of the elderly ward. While working for the NHS I completed my NVQs. In 2005 I moved on to work for the private sector, and worked for the Nuffield group. I worked in the operating theatre for nearly 8 years,. However, after having my daughter I was unable to sustain the long hours theatre work required. Still within the Nuffield group I returned to work on the ward completing admissions, theatre after care and discharges.

In April 2012 our son was deployed to Afghanistan and our daughter went to India. This made us take stock of our lives, and as my husband and I both worked in healthcare we decided to make changes. Late 2012 after receiving our son home safely we moved to Torquay in Devon to live by the sea. On arrival in Torquay I worked at Torbay Hospital as the surgical bleep cover which included A&E and all surgical wards.

In 2014 I moved on to a home care company and became the team leader for the Buckfastleigh area, this included managing a team of 10 carers and 24 clients, covering Newton Abbot and Bovey Tracey. I came to work at Redmount Residential Home in 2015, as a senior care supervisor. I was promoted to Deputy Manager April 2016.

I have been the Acting / Registered Manager here at Redmount Residential Home since November 2016. We have a great team here at Redmount, and they have supported me to make the transition to acting manager.

I have lots more to learn, but I’m loving every minute of it.
