There is is a gem nestling in the heart of Haddenham, tucked back from Churchway and sitting in its own grounds. Stonehill House is home for 11 residents and run by a devoted team of carers headed by Lindsey McGibbon, an extremely hardworking and dedicated Care Manager and her efficient deputy, Sarah Warren.
Together they ensure that the ladies and gentlemen in their care are happy, secure and well looked after. This establishment relies on the goodwill of the community as it is a charity and a non-profit making organisation.
There is a management committee who work closely with Lindsey and her team ensuring that all aspects are covered including finance, house maintenance and the day to day running of the home.
On occasion the team require back-up and are hoping to create a bank of carers to cover for holidays and sickness. An advertising campaign is to be run to find likeminded people to join this fantastic team at Stonehill House. If you feel that this is something that would suit you the contact number is detailed below.
Another major requirement is fundraising. This is now a priority as four of the rooms are without bathrooms. Planning permission is being sought to build an extension for four ensuites which will make this long held dream a reality. The aim is to obtain sponsorship to help finance this much needed project. A fundraising sub-committee is to be formed and will commit itself to this aim. If you are somebody who feels they could help them reach this goal please call.
The home has a bank of volunteers who visit regularly to spend time with the residents. They provide many different types of support including a specific volunteer for each resident to speak to on a regular basis, group activities, outings, art & card making, music, poetry and pastoral care. Time freely given is one of the most important elements for the residents. More volunteers are needed and always welcome.
