Care home searches for local heroes

December 1 2019

A new care home in Huntington is asking the Chester community to nominate ‘local heroes’ for the chance to win a £500 cash prize.

Care UK’s Deewater Grange, on Chester Road, is searching for local people or organisations who consistently change people’s lives for the better, regardless of whether it’s friends, family or the local community.

The winner of the ‘local heroes’ competition will receive £500 and be invited to the opening of the area’s newest care home at its grand launch event in March 2020.

Sally Cooper, home manager at Deewater Grange, said: “We all know that one special person who makes a positive impact on people every day. Whether it’s the coach who ferries children to and from matches on the weekend, the teacher who tutors in their own time or the charity volunteer who organises the local fundraisers we want to reward them.

“Whether they’re a volunteer at a local charity, a community group that really makes a difference to the area, or simply someone who goes that extra mile for others – share your story with us so we can reward them with the treat they deserve.”

To nominate your ‘local hero’, go to https://www.careuk.com/care-homes/local-heroes-deewater-grange before 31st January 2020 and explain in 100-400 words why they deserve to be rewarded.

Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, the new care home will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities. The layout of the building will be configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help facilitate the creation of close-knit communities.

For more information about potential residency at Deewater Grange the marketing suite will be opening on 4 November 2019.
