This week, we're shining a spotlight on the local communities that surround our six Nursing Homes and extending a heartfelt thank you.
Over the last three months, local businesses and community groups have gone the extra mile to help both our staff and residents within the Homes to feel supported.
From impromptu visits by the Fire Brigade clapping for our Morris Care team on Thursday nights, to groups hand- sewing and sending masks, baking cakes, donating treats, to local schoolchildren writing cards and letters of comfort to residents to show they care, the thoughtfulness of these gestures has had a positive impact on everyone.
Chief Executive Lucy Holl commented: “COVID-19 has had an impact on everyone’s lives and despite this, there have been so many true acts of selflessness to help others – it has been truly uplifting to witness.
“Our residents health and safety is of upmost priority and the extra support of the communities around our Homes has been felt throughout.”
Acting Home Manager, Jon Cook, at Corbrook Park noted how both our staff and residents had been overwhelmed by the endless acts of kindness.
“It’s amazing how thoughtful everyone has been. At a time when it’s easy to feel disconnected, people have found other ways to come together and make a difference where it matters most.”.
