Ashford care home thanks local community for their support

A care home in Ashford has thanked those who have gone the extra mile to support residents throughout the coronavirus pandemic, from the members of the community to its dedicated team members.

Unable to say thank you in person, residents and team members at Care UK’s Montfort Manor, on Kennington Road, have sent out a virtual thank you, to express their gratitude for the consideration and generosity shown by the people of Ashford over the past couple of months.

From volunteering, to delivering messages and artwork to brighten everyone’s day, individuals and organisations have pulled together to support the older members of the community, and Care UK homes across the country have been overwhelmed by the kind gestures of local people.

Montfort Manor was inundated with support, receiving headbands for the team from Button Bands Folkestone and treats from Cake Hole of Dymchurch.

Whether it’s baking for a resident’s birthday, keeping the morale up through creative activities, team members at Montfort Manor have also been praised for their unwavering dedication and relentless efforts over the past few months.

Cheryl Shorter, home manager at Montfort Manor, said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported us over the past couple of months, whether that be through volunteering, sending tokens of appreciation, or creating fantastic headbands for our team.

“Every single thought, message and gesture has helped to raise the spirits of our fantastic team and has brightened the days of residents missing their families. It really has kept everyone going.

“On behalf of everyone at Montfort Manor, thank you so much.”

Montfort Manor is a purpose-built care home which has been designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence. The home provides full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for older people in Ashford, and incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities, including its own cinema, hairdressing salon and café.
