The Surrey Heath MP visited the residential and dementia home on Lightwater Road, after a relative of the care home, Mary Kearney contacted him praising us for our efforts during the pandemic.
The visit was an opportunity for the MP to thank the General Manager and the team, and for the residents to ask questions about his latest policies.
Michael Gove said: “Lakeview is a brilliant, passionately run care home, and I was delighted to see first-hand the dedication shown by all the staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to make sure that residents are safe and healthy. I am so grateful to Inder Hanzra, the General Manager, for taking the time to show me the home’s exemplary facilities, and I look forward to returning soon.”
General Manager at Lakeview Care Home, Inderpreet Hanzra added: “It means a lot to myself and the team that Mary is happy with the care that we provide to her husband and wrote to Michael Gove personally to acknowledge us.
“The team has worked so hard throughout the pandemic to keep everyone safe, happy and engaged and I am immensely proud of them all.
