Nuneaton MP Marcus Jones today attended the celebration of the newly refurbished facilities at Gildawood Court.
As well as being given a tour of the refurbished reception area and hairdressing salon by members of staff, Mr. Jones took time to speak to residents about their everyday lives and activities, including a number of the residents who aided in refurbishing furniture as part of the project.
The visiting MP was clearly impressed by the home and the Caring Homes Group as a whole, commenting:
“I was delighted to visit the refurbished Gildawood Court to meet with residents and staff. Having visited, I sensed a real family oriented home which serves Nuneaton people well. The Court has superb facilities and the refurbishment shows the commitment of the Caring Homes Group to invest to ensure that those with dementia have high quality care here in Nuneaton.”
During his visit Mr. Jones had the opportunity to chat with the Home Manager and staff, who took him through the range of therapeutic activities offered by Gildawood.
Jo Madejowska, Gildawood Manager said:
“Everyone at Gildawood was very proud to welcome our MP to the home and show him our fantastic care facilities. I want to say a big thank you to Mr. Jones on behalf of residents and staff for making this such a special day.
It was lovely for us all to have the chance to meet Mr. Jones and tell him about the events we run with the local community; he was very interested in the range of activities that we offer our residents at Gildawood.”
