St Anne’s – Saltash – outstanding_

A recently rated care home is calling for people to send in letters, pictures and poems to help residents stay connected during this difficult time.

St Anne’s Care Home in Saltash, Cornwall, recently became Anchor’s 10th Outstanding care home following an inspection in February.

Care Home Manager Neil McCalley said: “We are proud of the care we provide and especially at this time it is even more imperative that we support residents to stay connected with their loved ones through the coming weeks. We continue to help them use Skype, Facetime and emails to keep in touch with family and friends and we continue to use technology to support activities.

“We along with many other Anchor care homes are calling for people to send in letters, pictures and poems to our residents. This is part of the #BeKindToOneAnother campaign that is being run on Anchor social media channels. We have already received drawings this week from four-year-old children in Plymouth. Please keep sending them into us, the residents are so happy to be receiving them.”
