Emergency Services Invited To Take A Break At Care Home

Elgar Court Care Home in Malvern, is providing a much-needed refreshment pit stop for all local emergency services with their “Take A Break” campaign.  At any time of the day, hard-working emergency workers can call into the care home to get a hot or cold drink and a tasty bite to eat either to have at the Care home or, to take away with them if time is tight.

The home said it is delighted to be able to offer this service to “our wonderful” emergency crews to thank them for all that they do.

To launch this campaign, the home had the pleasure of entertaining our Malvern Community Policing team, Becky, Dave and Kevin, with hearing and seeing demonstrations of their policing toolkit – handcuffs, body cameras, smart water tagging sprays, Tasers and batons! And of course, reassured that these are not needed with the good folk of Malvern!

However, Maria Griffiths, Elgar Court’s Activities Co-ordinator felt what it’s like being on the wrong side of the law when she tried on the handcuffs! Luckily PC Dave had his keys and safely handed our beloved Maria back to the residents!

Sarah Cadwallader, General Manager for Elgar Court Care Home, said: “We all know how hard our emergency services work and how much our Malvern community rely on them.  We wanted to say thank you for all that they do, and this is our way of giving back.  We want our local emergency services to know they are always welcome here at Elgar Court Care Home.”
