Music on our minds

A recent visit saw the ever-popular Mindful Music duet entertain us at Birch Green.


The act, which specialises in music therapy in care homes, made sure there was plenty of singing and dancing as well as fun and laughter – even Angie our nurse and Phil the General Manager enjoyed joining in.

Homemade pizzas on the menu at Birch Green

We cooked up some tasty treats recently as part of a cookery activity at Birch Green Care Home.


Our group sat and made their own pizzas and chose their own toppings, picking from cheddar and mozzarella cheeses with ingredients including ham, mushroom, onions, peppers and pineapple.


The tasty creations were then cooked in time for lunch.


What's your favourite topping? 



Lunch out for Birch Green group

A group of residents and staff from Birch Green Care Home headed to the local Toby Carvery recently for lunch.


The monthly Helping Hands lunch is a great opportunity for people to gather for a meal and chat.


Shopping trippers

A group from Birch Green enjoyed a lovely day out at Oswaldtwistle Mills near Accrington recently.



The group enjoyed looking round all the outlets and reading up on the local history.



They especially enjoyed stopping for a fish and chip dinner afterwards!


We like your choice of pumps Edna.

Goodbye to Jean

Long-serving and popular member of staff Jean Ali bid us farewell recently when she retired after 16 years with Birch Green Care Home.


A much-loved nurse, Jean is very popular with residents, their friends and families, and of course among her fellow staff.


She will be missed by us all but we hope she enjoys her retirement – starting with a long-anticipated holiday and road trip!
