A care home in Kidderminster has thanked those who have gone the extra mile to support residents throughout the coronavirus pandemic, from members of the community to its dedicated team.
Care UK’s Brook Court, on Oldnall Road, has expressed its gratitude for the consideration and generosity shown by the people of Kidderminster and surrounding areas over the past couple of months.
From volunteering, to delivering messages and artwork to brighten everyone’s day, individuals and organisations have pulled together to support the older members of the community, and Care UK homes across the country have been overwhelmed by the kind gestures of local people.
Brook Court has been inundated with support, receiving knitted blankets and kind messages from the local community, as well as thoughtful cards and pictures from Railway Children Nursery and Foley Primary Park Academy. Plenty of cakes have also been delivered for residents and team members alike, from Local Cakes 4 Carers group and Becca’s Cake House, whose bakes really helped take the home’s VE Day celebrations to the next level. Tom, a regular entertainer at the home, also raised spirits of the residents with a special video message and song.
Whether it’s baking for a resident’s birthday, keeping the morale up through creative activities and karaoke sessions, team members at Brook Court have also been praised for their unwavering dedication and relentless efforts over the past few months.
Gill Pratt, home manager at Brook Court, said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported us over the past couple of months, whether that be through volunteering, sending tokens of appreciation, or putting pen to paper with thoughtful cards and messages.
“Every single thought, message and gesture has helped to raise the spirits of our fantastic team and has brightened the days of residents missing their families. It really has kept everyone going.
“On behalf of everyone at Brook Court, thank you so much.”
