Looking back at last month’s celebration of the Queen’s 90th Birthday, we have a collage of photos from our fun trip with the Queen!
Thursday, 21st April 2016 – The Queen’s 90th Birthday
To mark the 90th birthday of the oldest monarch in British history, The Evergreens is celebrating with a traditional British outing to the beach and a fish and chip lunch. See here for details…
Following the outing we’re having a special afternoon Royal Tea, from 3pm, with all the style you’d expect from the Ritz! Details of our Royal Tea afternoon can be found by clicking this link.
One of the Top 20 Recommended Care Homes in the South West!
The Evergreens is proud to announce that it has won an award from carehome.co.uk, the leading directory and review site for care homes in England! The award is for being one of the top 20 recommended care homes in the whole South West region as recommended by residents and their families. We were only one of 2 Bournemouth homes to make it into the list.
Thanks to all the staff for their continued hard work and help in making The Evergreens the caring, resident focused home that it is. Well done!
This is an excerpt from carehome.co.uk: Homes in each region of the UK. The Awards are based on over 55,000 Reviews & Recommendations received from Residents and Family / Friends of Residents from 15th February 2014 to 15th February 2016. Specifically, we have used the Review Score, as of 15th of February 2016, which is calculated using a combination of the number of reviews, the average of each of the ratings and the size of the care home. Care homes are excluded from the awards if they are not compliant with their regulatory authority at the time of the announcement of the Awards (5th March 2016).
Merry Christmas to you all from The Evergreens!
We’ve been having a great time here with our Christmas Party for the residents and our outing to the Haven Hotel to see the Christmas Lights, enjoy a hot sausage role accompanied by a glass of mulled wine, all served by the waiters from the Haven. Mmmm!

The weather certainly seems to be changing with the seasons, but to keep our residents nicely warmed up, we’ve got our usual range of activities this month with a couple of new additions like pianist Simon Woodley and of course a spooky end to October with Halloween and a special menu.
Looking back at the end of the summer we were very lucky to have been able to make the most of the better weather with a feature trip to Avon Beach and a resident’s fish & chips lunch, click here to see our photo collage of the trip.

We’ve got a busy schedule for our residents through July and August with the highlight being our SUMMER PARTY on Thursday 23rd July 2015, which all family and friends of our residents are invited to.

We have also recently made an improvement to access at The Evergreens. We have relaid the central portion of the drive to tarmac and we’re sure that passge will be much easier for wheelchairs and walking aids.
As far as our regular activities go, our highlights are as follows:
We have all the regular activities and goings on at The Evergreens this month which you can see by following this link…..Activity highlights – May 2015.
