Work Experience at Chelston Park

We are happy to have students for work experience and we can offer a lot of variety in this regard. In the past, we have mostly had people come in to get work experience in care, but this time we had Charlie work with the maintenance team for a week. He also wrote a blog for us about his experiences.

Fantastic news in from CQC: Chelston Gardens has achieved outstanding overall in our most recent inspection. This is rare success indeed. Only 19 homes were rated outstanding in December and we were one of them!

The Gold Standards Framework is an award that ensures the highest level of care – where the wishes of clients, their families alongside the advice of specialist health care professionals is taken into account when forming a care plan.

Community Dance Project

In the spring we were approached by SPACE (Somerset Performing Arts Centre of Education). The students at SPACE were doing a performing arts project about dementia and wanted to film it at Chelston Gardens.

Sensory Rooms for Dementia

We are fortunate to have fantastic staff at Chelston Gardens and when Danny, one of our activities coordinators, found some extra room in the budget, he came up with a creative use for it.
