Celebrations all Round!

15 February, 2021

On the 15th of February 2021 Rustington Hall not only celebrated its re-opening to admissions after a challenging start to the year but one of our residents celebrated her 100th Birthday!

Although currently in lockdown to visitors we endeavored to make this a day to remember with a 3 tier homemade cake, balloons, COVID friendly entertainment, many gifts and a special appearance from Rusty the Bear!

Along side all the festivities staff took time to reflect on the difficult recent weeks and all staff and residents were given a personalised gift bag to represent the appreciation that the organisation wanted to acknowledge.

Sally Morris CEO & Registered Manager conducted a heart felt speech relaying the importance of each member of staff and their hard work to ensure Rustington Hall remained safe and residents were cared for during the Society's most darkest days and to carry on the amazing work.

Wacky Tacky Day

10 February, 2021

Our Wacky Tacky Day was another one of our successful 'themed' days.  Staff and residents were dressed in bright colours, odd shoes and generally anything that 'clashed'.  The Activities Team were busy putting coloured chalk in our hair, painting our nails and playing games with the residents.  As you will see from the photo a few of us were determined to help our resident finish her puzzle - although with lots of blue sky and pieces of puzzle all looking the same - I have to say we were defeated!

Open for Admissions

01 February, 2021

I am really pleased to say that we will be accepting new admissions again from 15th February.  We had a challenging couple of weeks but with the absolutely fantastic staff team all working extremely hard and supporting each other and our residents we have pulled through.

To all other Registered Managers - if we can do it so can you - it's tough but some form of normality will return I promise you.  Don't lose hope, stay strong and If you ever want to talk to someone who's been there please give me a call.

Reindeers at Rustington Hall

15 December, 2020

On Tuesday 15th December residents and staff had a fantastic time visiting live reindeer and meeting Father Christmas in his grotto.  We wanted to say a massive thank you to all our staff for their hard work throughout a very challenging year and so staff were invited to bring their children along to be greeted by Rusty the Bear, feed the reindeer and get a little pressie and reindeer gingerbread biscuit from Father Christmas.  

ITV Meridian came along to the event and you can see the broadcast that was shown on Thursday 17th December on the link below.

We would like to say a big thank you to Tesco in Chichester, Rustington Bakery, Rustington Butcher & Deli for their donations.
