Our 15th Silver Walk took place this week with the group from Courtland Lodge in Watford making their way to Meresworth in Rickmansworth, a total of 6.2 miles! The walkers were lucky enough to have sunshine the whole way as they walked along the canal and were welcomed at Meresworth with a wonderful party and plenty of food!
Pinewood Lodge received a big thank you from Greenfields Primary School for inviting them along to join the residents for some singing! The residents loved having the children in the home and chatting with them, even giving them some gifts before they left. Everyone at Pinewood Lodge was delighted with the lovely thank you messages the school sent to them.

Every morning, Courtland Lodge resident Joan gets the Metro brought to her by the home’s activity worker and after breakfast, she and her friend Jean settle in in the Sun Lounge. Jean works on her word search book while Joan reads her some of her favourite headlines from the day! It’s lovely to see the two friends enjoying their own morning routine in the home!
On Saturday 3rd February 2018, Winifred Apps was joined by five generations of her family, friends and staff at Nevetts in Buntingford to celebrate her 100th birthday.
Win was born in London on 2nd February 1918. She grew up one of four sisters, two older and one younger and was close with her family. During WWII, she enlisted in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) and moved to Suffolk. It was here that she met Charles, a soldier stationed at the same base who soon became her husband.
Quantum Care is celebrating after being recognised as one of the top operators in the country in a prestigious national magazine!
We were ranked as the 5th best care provider in England, following an independent review of the care sector by consumer group Which?.
The analysis found that over 92% of Quantum Care’s homes are rated as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission - significantly outperforming the national average.
Dukeminster Court invited staff, family, friends and other organisations that have helped in raising the funds that have enabled Dukeminster Court to purchase their own mini-bus. Speeches by our Director of Operations, Stewart Mynott and Home Manager Marta Carter were followed by a toast and unveiling of the mini-bus named ‘The Duchess’.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side but the party continued long into the afternoon indoors with afternoon tea and live entertainment.
Well done Dukeminster Court! We look forward to seeing lots of outings planned this year.
