Health Secretary Matt Hancock recently visited Kingfisher House Care Home which is located in his constituency of West Suffolk, to meet the team here. Mr Hancock was keen to know how residents and team members were getting on during these challenging times and although he couldn’t come inside because of current visiting restrictions, he spent time in our garden chatting to team members. A TV crew from BBC Look East filmed an interview with Mr Hancock during his visit and our Home Manager Mable also appeared on the programme.
Howdon Care Centre throw a surprise celebration for their team member. Our lovey Nurse, Cammie is awaiting the arrival of her baby girl and before she went on maternity leave, we decided to throw her a surprise baby shower! For the occasion we put up baby girl themed decorations and we brought in some delicious treats for our residents and team. It was fantastic seeing how surprised Cammie was and we’re thrilled she was pleased with the presents we got her. We’re sure Cammie is going to have a lovely time during her maternity and both our residents and team will miss her lots.
