Staff and residents at Appleby have enjoyed having fun in the sun with all the glorious weather recently. This was followed by some singing and dancing in the new look lounge!!
The staff and residents at Appleby had a great Halloween. Families and children visited the home to join in the fun and games and took part in the trick or treat for the residents.
Over £250 for the comfort fund was raised! The Home Manager would like to say a big thank you to Steve and the staff for a great day – the feedback from families was that it was the most fun and the best turn out in all the years they have been coming to the home. Let’s do it again for Christmas!
Appleby Care Home provides specialist dementia (EMI) care for residents in North Shields.
Staff and residents enjoy the recent firework display at Appleby, and also created a lovely display to mark Armistice Day.

Two of our lovely resident’s got treated to a pamper session with the hairdresser on Monday, the ladies enjoy a good old gossip while getting nails cleaned and filed, hands moisturised and hair done in the homes relaxing salon.
They listened to relaxing music and read magazines during their treatments.
Appleby Care Home took 2 of their residents on a walk along the Fish Quay and into Laurel park, you can see Laurel peeping up in the background!!
It was a lovely afternoon out, they watched the crab boats coming in with the seagulls chasing them for the scraps.
Laurel Park is a small area fenced in with beautiful plants and small trees it is located in North Shields.
A few of our residents recently went on a trip out in the mini bus to see the Cruise ship ‘Marina’ at The Royal Quays (North Shields).
The guys really enjoyed this as they were from a sea faring and ship building background.
A few of the guys actually helped to build the famous ship HMS Arc Royal!!
That was back in the 70’s and they have fond memories and love to reminisce about their younger years in the Royal and Merchant Navy.
