Powys Care Home Celebrates 50th Anniversary
A care home in Powys is celebrating 50 years of delivering high quality care for its residents.
Prestemede care home in Presteigne marked the milestone with a celebratory afternoon tea for residents and staff, with family and friends joining in the fun online via Zoom.
Also joining virtually to congratulate the staff and look back over the years was Russell Brown, chief financial officer for Shaw healthcare, which has operated the home in partnership with Powys County Council since June 2019.
Judith Jones, service manager, commented: “It has been a wonderful afternoon celebrating this amazing milestone. Ideally we would have opened our doors to family and friends as well as entertainers, but I am lucky to have such a dedicated and caring team who made it a very special occasion.
“It was also a time to reflect on the great work of all staff, past and present. This includes our newest resident Majorie, who was herself a member of the team here decades ago, as well as several colleagues who celebrated long-service milestones.
“I’d like to personally thank everyone who has made Prestemede the home it is today.”
