This week, family-run Morris Care is shining a spotlight on the local communities that surround its six Nursing Homes to extend a heartfelt thank you.
Over the last three months, local businesses and community groups have gone the extra mile to help both staff and residents within the Homes to feel supported.
From impromptu visits by the Fire Brigade clapping for the Morris care team on Thursday nights, to groups hand-sewing and sending masks, baking cakes, donating treats, to local schoolchildren writing cards and letters of comfort to residents to show they care, the thoughtfulness of these gestures has had a positive impact on everyone.
Morris Care Chief Executive Lucy Holl commented: “COVID-19 has had an impact on everyone’s lives yet despite this, there have been so many true acts of selflessness to help others – it has been truly uplifting to witness.
“The wellbeing of both our staff and residents is so important and this wonderful community spirit has been felt by us all.”
Acting Home Manager, Jon Cook, at Corbrook Park noted how everyone had been overwhelmed by the endless acts of kindness.
“It’s amazing how thoughtful everyone has been. At a time when it’s easy to feel disconnected, people have found other ways to come together and make a difference where it matters most.”
