The team at Lower Meadow care home, in Stratford-Upon-Avon, were so grateful to receive such a kind gesture from the family of one of the homes’ late residents. The family had worked hard to fundraise for the team in memory of their relative, Margaret, who lived at Lower Meadow care home.
On the 11th of August, the family visited the home to present the money they had fundraised for the team, which amounted to an astonishing £1000.
The care team, who were overjoyed by such kindness, have decided to put the money towards a water feature with a personalised plaque in memory of Margaret. They also aim to plant some forget me not flowers in the area to create a tranquil and reflective place for residents, staff and Margaret’s family to visit whenever they please.
The 69-bed Stratford care home have recently received their ‘Good’ CQC rating, and so the remainder of the gift will go towards the party the team are planning to celebrate their new and improved CQC outcome. The team will be celebrating with residents, relatives and their local community.
The thoughtful gesture is a lovely reflection of appreciation that the community have for the Lower Meadow team, for their care, compassion and overall hard work.
Rachel Walker, Home Manager at Lower Meadow commented:
“We are so grateful for this extremely kind gift. The team and I are all so passionate about what we do, and we can’t believe that our community have gone above and beyond to show their thanks by raising such an astounding amount of money for the home.
