Opening Evening Welcome

First of all, may I welcome you to Lime Tree House, we cannot begin to tell you how pleased, how excited and relieved we are to be here this evening. My name is Glen and I am the clinical lead and nominated individual. I’m sure the rest of our management team, Claire and Rob, (our owners and unstoppable driving force) and Sue, our registered Manager will all agree with the words of Joseph B. Wirthlin,

“Sometimes we make the process more complicated than we need to. We will never make a journey of a thousand miles by fretting about how long it will take or how hard it will be. We make the journey by taking each day step by step and then repeating it again and again until we reach our destination.”

We have walked the thousand miles, eased our way past complications, and certainly done this step by step. With the help of many builders, architects, friends, family, generous and interested members of the public, parents and industry professionals we have reached this point. Some with grazed knuckles and aching limbs, some with writer’s cramp and new prescriptions for their spectacles; but all with the satisfaction of a job well done.

All this has led to a beautifully crafted building, a mix of specialist facilities and unique features; but remaining as much of a blank canvas as possible to enable us to provide a flexible and organic service that will change, react and shape around the most important members of our team; our residents. Each bedroom is unique in its form, all have large wet rooms to promote independence and dignity and all are left plain to allow every resident the opportunity to design their own space. Likewise the underpinning ethos for how we care for our residents is based on individual needs, desires and expectations. We provide the building and only by working in a truly person centered manner can we make this a home.

This approach directed our recruitment and selection process, the team we have built demonstrated, not only an understanding of placing the resident at the core of all we do, but a drive to achieve this; it’s one thing to treat others as we would want to be treated, but we aim to step this up and our team are expected to treat residents as they, themselves, wish to be treated. The team is expected to overlap their roles, to achieve what is needed and support each other to support our residents.

We believe the mix of facilities, team structure, management drive, and underpinning ethos really makes Lime Tree House a fresh approach to care.

Rob, Claire, Sue and I are about if you wish to ask any questions this evening; we also have members of our staff team here, coming from a mix of backgrounds and experiences in care and wider industries, please talk to any or all of us about who we are and what we can offer. We also have a buffet, and drinks available, please help yourselves. Take our leaflets with you, tell your friends and spread the word.

Now it just remains for me to introduce His Worship, the Mayor of Chesterfield, Councillor Bingham to say a few words and declare Lime Tree House open.

Mr. Mayor…
