The Lord Mayor of Coventry visited one of the city’s care homes to chat to residents and learn more about the work being done to help people with dementia.
Lord Mayor Cllr Linda Bigham was invited to Clarendon House in Birmingham Road, Allesley, by the Registered Manager and new owners of Clarendon House Care Home.
The operators have recently added Clarendon House to their portfolio alongside Clarendon Mews Care Home which they run in Leicester.
Cllr Bigham was given a tour of the 23 bed home and talked to residents and staff.
She said: “In Coventry, we believe very strongly in an all-inclusive city where all people are helped to live happy, healthy lives as part of their local community.”
“We are very fortunate to have some outstanding care homes and very dedicated staff in our city and it was wonderful to see the level of care at Clarendon House and the facilities available.”
“It is a very happy, active home that helps people to enjoy a good quality of life and gives residents and their families the support they need.”
Abbas Nurmohamed, a Director at Clarendon House Care Home added: “We aim to make Clarendon House Care Home one of the best providers of care in the Midlands and beyond and set the benchmark for amazing care.”
Donna Ingram, the Registered Care Home Manager stated “We pride ourselves in having a fantastic team of staff who provide person-centred care, giving every resident the freedom to continue their daily lives with independence, dignity and personal choice. We are in the process of upgrading the Care Home to make it more dementia friendly and start a day care facility.”
“We were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor; all the staff and residents thoroughly enjoyed the day. It is always a pleasure to host visitors and showcase our home from home.”
