Dominic Raab, the Member of Parliament for Esher and Walton, helped the staff and residents of Home of Compassion to kick off a busy month of Christmas activities in style this week.
During his visit, Mr Raab had the opportunity to chat with residents, the Home Manager and care staff, who took him through the wide range of facilities, hospitality and lifestyle activities on offer at the home, which provides residential, nursing, palliative and dementia care for up to 78 residents.
Mr Raab said of his visit: “It was great to visit the Home of Compassion on Friday. Social care settings across Elmbridge have had a really tough time during the pandemic – so this was a good opportunity to personally thank all of the staff for the exceptional efforts they’ve made, and chat to some of the residents. Thank you to everyone at Home of Compassion for such a warm welcome.”
The visit came just a few months after the home was awarded a Good rating in its latest CQC inspection, with inspectors praising the “kind, thoughtful and respectful team of staff who know the residents well.”
Home of Compassion Manager, Rose O’Mara said: “Everyone at the Home of Compassion was very proud to welcome our MP to the home and show him our fantastic care and hospitality facilities. I want to say a big thank you to Mr. Raab on behalf of our residents and staff for making it such a special day.
It was lovely for us all to have the chance to meet Mr. Raab and tell him about the events we run with the local community; he was very interested in the range of lifestyle activities that are on offer here at Home of Compassion.”
