Wayne David MP joins in with celebrations at Abermill Care Home Caerphilly recognising National Care Home Open Day
Wayne David MP visited Abermill Care Home on the recent National Care Home Open Day and joined residents, and their relatives along with staff who were enjoying a fun packed week. The Home had been celebrating the Queens 90th birthday earlier in the week with a number of events.
Residents were also joined by Bullah Church Group for a grand tea party on Care Home Open Day. Earlier in the week, to celebrate the Queen’s birthday, they were entertained by Mandy Ann, a local singer, who sang beautifully for them and led lots of sing-a-longs
John Roberts, Abermill Care Home Manager commented “It was a joy to see how many families and people from the local community attended the events. Many of the residents were involved in making cakes and dressing the lounges for the week long activities. The Home was full of smiles, laughter and lots of dancing to help burn off those cake calories. The residents also took charge in raising money for this years selected charity Marie Cure which provides care and support through terminal illness. Thanks to the resident’s hard work and the generosity of others we were able to raise £200 to be donated”
As a finale to the week of events relatives showed their gratitude to the staff team at Abermill Care Home by presenting a specially made cake for the staff to enjoy as a token of their gratitude for all the hard work which had taken place to ensure all the residents enjoyed the celebrations.
HC-One Regional Managing Director Liz Whyte commented “I know residents at Abermill Care Home were very pleased to welcome Wayne David MP to help celebrate National Care Home Open Day with them. The team at Abermill worked very hard to give the residents a day to remember and raise much needed funds for our partner Marie Curie. I would like to thank everyone involved”.
