Nursing and residential home The Oaks in Newtown has taken part in a nationalNcampaign to highlight all the good work being done by care homes.
The campaign, called ‘Feeding Heroes’, is being run by Care Home Life and aims to #PassOnSomeCheer to over 9,000 social care workers during lockdown. The motive behind the campaign is to shed a positive light on the fantastic work done by care home staff, and to lift the spirits of care workers by providing them with a thoughtful free lunch.
Debbie Smith of Care Home Life said: “We’re committed to supporting care homes, care workers and their residents as best as we possibly can throughout this crisis.”
The Oaks Care home in Newtown, Powys, which provides residential, nursing and dementia care, received 26 freshly pre-packed lunchboxes for its members of staff as a way of recognising their devotion to residents. Jennifer Roberts, Registered Manager of The Oaks, said her team were thrilled that the home took part in the initiative.
She said: “We are so proud of our staff, who always go the extra mile for the residents here at The Oaks. The Feeding Heroes campaign is a lovely way of recognising the hard work and dedication of all our workers during this difficult time.”
