Rishi Sujeewon

Meet the Manager

To share a bit about me, I have 25 years of experience in the health and social care sector, which has provided me with the necessary grounding and knowledge to embark on this new and exciting journey at Lornebank Care Centre. I began my career as a nurse in Mauritius and continued in this role when I moved to the UK in 2005. I have since become a Care Home Manager in 2013, have held an Operational Manager role – overseeing two separate care businesses – and have completed a degree in Management. Ensuring the consistent provision of the highest quality care and support possible to residents, staff and relatives is my priority, and I very much look forward to the next chapter of my career here at Lornebank Care Centre.

Scarecrow Competition To kick off Autumn festivities, Hudson Healthcare ran an inter-Home scarecrow competition in the month of October! All Homes were delighted to get involved and took this as an opportunity to collaborate with residents to produce creative takes on scarecrows. There were two themes, one being superhero scarecrows and the other scarecrows ‘at work,’ which gave the Homes a chance to be as creative as possible. The Homes collaborated with different external organisations, from local farmers, to nursery children and many more. Thank you for all those who helped execute this…we could not have done it without you! A big congratulations to Pitkerro who won the competition!

Scarecrow Competition In the run-up to Halloween and as part of our Autumn festivities, Hudson Healthcare ran an inter-Home scarecrow competition in the month of October! We here at Lornebank Care Centre were delighted to get involved and wanted it to be as collaborative a project as possible. Our idea, based around a superhero theme and celebrity chosen by our residents, was to make two scarecrows. One scarecrow would be Spiderman, a favourite of many, and one would be Gordon Ramsay, a loved British Icon! Our final product was a great collaborative effort that wowed residents, staff and relatives! This was a fantastic experience for all involved and we are incredibly proud and grateful to all who helped. We would like to extend our congratulations to the winning Home, Pitkerro Care Centre, and watch out for next year’s competition.

High Tea & a Visit from Zola We had a wonderful high tea this weekend with sandwiches, cakes and lots of chats. We also enjoyed some singing and music, and a story told by our staff member Debbie! Additionally, Zola the black Labrador came to visit with her owner and staff member Emma. The residents were thrilled.
Arts and Crafts Our residents had a wonderful time creating their very own sunflowers – don’t they look beautiful!
Singing in the Garden Our resident Isa is a fantastic singer and a born entertainer- here she is singing ‘He’s Got the Whole World in his Hands’.
Strawberries and Meringues, Libraries, & Colouring We had a very kind donation of home-grown strawberries from a resident’s family member and we enjoyed assembling them with meringues and cream. They were delicious! Our resident Mary was overjoyed to visit our own Lornebank library. She selected two books and is excited to start them. Our staff member Caitlin did some colouring with residents - they all picked 5 things they liked about themselves and chatted about their favourite memories of kindness and generosity.
Hudson Breakfast, Crosswords, & a Flower Delivery We celebrated our heritage here at Lornebank with this month's Canadian-inspired Hudson pancake breakfast! The food was delicious, and the residents really enjoyed it. Our resident Eleanor was delighted to have the newspaper delivered to her and couldn’t wait to get stuck into the crossword! A big thank you to Hamilton Race Course, who kindly delivered some absolutely beautiful flowers. Elsie was thrilled and helped staff with deciding where to place the vases.
Bang Bat Game, Garden time, and a New Hat Our residents George and Helen had a blast playing the bang bat game – it’s lots of fun! We’ve also been enjoying spending time in the garden. Phylis checked on our sunflowers, which will soon bloom, and Johnny spent some wonderful family time outside. Isa has also treated herself to a lovely new sun hat and it looks fabulous.
Lunch at Redburn Farm, Gardening, & Happy Father’s Day We had a wonderful lunch at Redburn Farm this weekend. Everyone enjoyed refreshing drinks in the summer sunshine. Our residents have also been helping out in our garden. The inter-unit sunflower competition is still going strong and Pamela did a fabulous job with the weeding. We also celebrated Father’s Day with pies and pints, which our gentlemen absolutely loved.
Visit to Shops, Connect 4, and Ladies in Pink Moira had a wonderful trip to the garden centre to select flowers for our garden, as well as a look around the clothes shops for some new fashions! Additionally, Marion and Pamela enjoyed a competitive game of Connect 4; they’re both very skilled players. Nancy and her daughter Liz were dazzling in their pink outfits- the co-ordinated clothes lit up the garden.
Gardening & a Singsong The sunshine has our garden blooming beautifully, with some help from Gerry’s careful tending. Mary also loves being outside in the green space! Additionally, we had a great singsong in the lounge this morning.
