A Shaw healthcare care home in Somerset is celebrating 20 years of delivering care in the community.
Staff and residents at Petersfield care home in Portishead marked the milestone this month with an afternoon tea party, with virtual attendance from family and friends, as well as Liam Fox MP and Alun Thomas, chairman of Shaw healthcare.
Home Manager Lin Rees said: “While we would have loved to have been able to welcome more people into the home to celebrate, it was still a nice treat to see so many faces virtually.
“So much has changed over the last 20 years, but the high quality of care provided by our staff has not. We get to know residents and families and offer the individual care people need.”
Administrator Kay Kellet and resident Philip Wyatt, who hold the respective longevity records for staff and residents at the home, joined in the celebrations.
The home provides respite and residential care for 36 service users, offering a structured environment and therapeutic activities to encourage confidence and assist in maximising independence.
