As summer fades away, and the golden season of autumn arrives, the team and residents at Czajka Care Group’s five nursing and care homes have been reflecting on the many achievements and celebrations that have been shared this year.
Czajka Care Group provides respite care, short-breaks, day care, full-time care and palliative care for people aged 65 and over at Fairmount Nursing Home and Brookfield Care Home in Nab Wood, Shipley and Currergate Nursing Home in Steeton and Beanlands Nursing Home in Cross Hills.
It also owns and runs Staveley Birkleas Nursing Home – the specialist nursing home in the North – which cares for young people from the age of 18 through to 64, who have a variety of needs including amputees, people with brain injuries, multiple sclerosis (MS), motor neuron disease, Huntington’s, epilepsy and many other complex conditions.
Czajka Care Group’s managing director, Konrad Czajka, said: “We have made the most of the last few sunny days this month and hosted some fabulous and inclusive activities outside. The team at Staveley Birkleas tapped into the excitement surrounding the Tokyo 2021 Paralympics and organised their very own Paralympics Games. The event was a huge success with everyone entering into the competitive spirit!
“The nursing home also welcomed talented live musicians, the Dashboard Pirates, and our residents thoroughly enjoyed the music, requesting and joining in with their favourite songs. Our residents at Staveley Birkleas are all young and vibrant people who enjoy a host of hobbies and interests, with many particularly loving football, which is why we organised for Aaron Batley from Supporting Charities Football Club to come and have a kick about with them.”
Czajka Care Group is sponsoring Aaron from The Charity Football Club, which is based in Bradford and plays all over the country raising funds for many organisations and charities – over £73,000 has been raised and donated to date with ex professional players, Hollyoaks, Emmerdale stars and TV personalities all playing. At a recent game £3,500 was raised for Cash for Kids & Rotherham Charity Hospital.”
Konrad added: “This month we have also welcomed ‘Pets As Therapy’ pooch Coco, and her owner Mary, into our homes. Her visit was eagerly anticipated by our residents who all enjoyed petting her and chatting with Mary. Her visit brought back many memories of beloved family pets for our residents and was very engaging. Mary volunteers for Pets As Therapy and both she and Coco brought much joy into our homes.”
In addition to the five care and nursing homes, Czajka Care Group also has two thriving retirement communities at Fairmount Park in Nab Wood, where there are 37 houses and apartments, and at Currergate Mews in Steeton, where there are 14, three-bedroom houses. It also owns and runs The Clubhouse at Fairmount Park which has undergone an extensive refurbishment while it was closed during lockdown, and its gym, swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room, snooker room, bar, restaurant, boardroom facilities, private function suite, bowling green and putting green are now open again.
