Greenacres care home in Meltham, operated by Ideal Carehomes, strengthened its position as a beacon of the local community by hosting a ‘winter warmer’ lunch for local older people.
Several members of Meltham village were invited to the home and enjoyed a glass of sherry on arrival followed by entertainment and a delicious warming meal of soup and meat pie. Greenacres, which prides itself on being an integral part of the local community, holds several events a year for local older people to visit the home, socialise with residents and participate in various activities with the staff and residents at the home.
Home Manager, Paula Mountjoy, said: “Since opening in July 2010, Greenacres has made many friends in the community and are very well supported by Meltham Town Council, the Church, Meltham Memories and Meltham Brass Band to name but a few. We are delighted to invite our guests to enjoy our fantastic facilities and to meet our staff and residents. Our residents thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and hosting events in their home and the ‘winter warmer’ afternoon was a great day for everyone!”
As well as the meal, the home provided 50’s and 60’s music from Rick Fry which had residents, staff and guests dancing around the home! Since the success of the winter warmer, Greenacres are already planning their next event which will be on Valentine’s Day.
Greenacres care home is a high quality residential and dementia care home which provides a great place to live, making a difference to the lives of the people who live there.
