Staff at Borough Care has thanked residents’ families and the wider community for their generous donations and kind words of support during the coronavirus.
Borough is the largest not for profit provider of elderly care in Stockport operating 11 homes in the area.
Lindsay Hadfield, Activity Lifestyle Facilitator at Borough Care’s Silverdale home in Bredbury, said: “We have received lots of wonderful donations, including cotton laundry bags, hand creams, safety visors, fruit, cakes and other food items. One young person has sent us beautiful pictures she has drawn and coloured, which we have put in the windows at Silverdale. We couldn’t be prouder to know that people of all ages, and from all walks of life, are thinking of us and sending their thoughts and gratitude. It means the world to all of us.”
Staff at Bryn Haven in Brinnington have also received handmade laundry bags, along with cupcakes decorated with the message: ‘After every storm there is a rainbow of hope.’
Dr Mark Ward, CEO at Borough Care, said: “All our staff are continuing to work so hard in these challenging times and it’s heart-warming that people recognise their commitment. It means so much to our staff to feel appreciated and valued for the work they are doing supporting residents. On behalf of all Borough Care staff, I would like to express our thanks to everyone who has taken the time to make and donate things, send messages of support and show their gratitude.”
