Alex goes for Gold at Heffle

 Heffle Court in East Sussex has been playing host to a very popular visitor for the past few months.

 

Alex Goodsell is a young man who is working towards his Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. As part of his award he is required to complete a personal programme of activities in volunteering, physical, skills, expedition and a residential activity.

 

Alex’s Grandmother, Ruth Hooper, is actually a resident at the purpose-built home, so it provided the perfect opportunity for him to contribute positively to the home whilst spending time with his Grandmother.

 

Alex has been spending time with the residents and participating in various activities around the home. Many residents have commented on how much they have enjoyed him being at the home and they will be sad to see him leave.

 

Everyone at Heffle Court and Caring Homes wish Alex the best of luck in completing his Duke of Edinburgh Award.

 

Located in the East Sussex market town of Heathfield, Heffle Court is a purpose-built care home providing specialist care for 32 elderly residents living with a form of dementia. The home offers a range of care provision from residential to nursing care depending upon the needs of the individual.
