Chorleywood Beaumont Honours Carers for National Carers Week

Residents at Chorleywood Beaumont care home in Chorleywood, run by Barchester Healthcare, are celebrating National Carers’ Week, which takes place from June 6-12. Residents wanted to thank all the wonderful staff at the home, whose hard work and dedication make a real difference to the lives of those living in their care.

Carers Week is an annual event to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges carers face, and recognising the contribution they make to our residents, families and communities throughout the UK. The theme for Carers Week this year is ‘Making caring visible, valued and supported’ – to shine a light on all those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to care for vulnerable people in our communities.

Staff were treated to an afternoon tea with live music in the garden. The Head chef and his team put together a wonderful spread of party food for everyone to enjoy. Family and friends arrived throughout the afternoon to join in the fun with staff and residents. There was an award ceremony and prizes were presented by the residents.

Residents also gave thanks by giving handmade cards and handwritten letters to carers with a small gift of thanks for all that they do.

Ramona Stanciu, General Manager said:
“It is so wonderful to be able to celebrate Carers Week and thank our fantastic carers with a summer party in our garden, and to be able to welcome the community, relatives and friends. Everyone has had such a fantastic day.”

Harold Tasker, a resident at Chorleywood Beaumont commented:
“We’ve all had such a lovely time today, it really is a joy to be able to thank our wonderful carers for all that they do. They really are heaven sent.”
