20th June 2016 was a significant date in our calendar, as this was the day we stopped smoking in the building.
The planning and preparations have been ongoing for the last 9 months: working with the smoking cessation nurse; learning about e-cigarettes and making sure new facilities are in place so that everyone could be ready to take on this challenge residents and staff.

Home Manager Julie commented “We’ve all been working hard to achieve this goal but I’d just like to offer a massive congratulations to all our residents and staff for taking this challenge on so whole heartedly, It’s a big change to the culture of our home but we know the benefits to our health and the overall well-being of our home will be well worth the effort.
