A Purley care home held a very special celebration to mark LGBTQIA+ Pride.
Care UK’s Amberley Lodge, on Downlands Road, hosted a rainbow-themed garden party to join in with local Pride celebrations and show their support for the LGBTQIA+ community.
On the day, the home’s lounge was adorned with Pride flags and inclusivity messages, while residents had the opportunity to tap their feet and sing along to iconic LGBTQIA+ anthems from across the decades.
Accompanying the music was a range of activities, including cake decorating, flag making, singing and dancing, which all promoted the message of inclusivity for residents and team members alike.
Azalea Moses, Home Manager at Amberley Lodge, said: “Here at Amberley Lodge, we are committed to ensuring the home is a welcoming and supportive place for everyone, which is why we were delighted to be able to show our support with a special Pride celebration.
“Regardless of how old or young we are, it’s important that we celebrate and promote living in a society where everyone is free to be who they want to be.
“Pride offers the perfect opportunity to learn more about the history of the LGBTQIA+ community and it was fantastic to decorate the home with all colours of the rainbow in preparation for the celebration. We’re already looking forward to getting our rainbow flags out again for our next event.”
Team members at Amberley Lodge have taken part in equality and diversity training as part of the home’s dedication to creating an open and warm environment, supported by Care UK’s LGBTQ+ Network, which provides training and guidance to team members on related issues, as well as developing an open culture in every care home.
Amberley Lodge has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, as well as respite, and end of life care.
