Care home is in the money

Sum­mer fete fun raises cash

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS - Ste­fanie Mccourt

A Hamil­ton care home is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter rais­ing £700 at its sum­mer fete.

Staff, res­i­dents and fam­i­lies at Lornebank Care Cen­tre got to­gether re­cently to round off an ac­tive and ex­cit­ing sum­mer with the event.

As part of the fes­tiv­i­ties, Royal Al­bert Hall en­ter­tainer Chris­tian per­formed a series of songs and dances.

Stalls and ac­tiv­i­ties kept the crowds en­ter­tained as neigh­bours of the home en­joyed so­cial­is­ing with res­i­dents and their fam­i­lies.

In ad­di­tion to the cel­e­bra­tory mood, the event raised a large amount which will be used by the team to or­gan­ise fun ac­tiv­i­ties for res­i­dents.

Guests at the fete were treated to an ex­clu­sive first-look tour of Wil­low­bank House, the new 33-bed­room unit, which will wel­come its first res­i­dents soon.

The con­struc­tion of Wil­low­bank House is just one way in which the home is plan­ning to in­crease its ca­pac­ity as part of a wider £2.8 mil­lion ex­pan­sion and re­fur­bish­ment project.

As the home looks to in­crease the level of care, ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties at Lornebank have also been sig­nif­i­cantly up­graded to re­fresh and re­vi­talise the home’s bed­rooms as well as the com­mu­nal ar­eas.

Res­i­dents will also soon be able to so­cialise, play games and re­lax in the new on-site Gar­den Café, which will of­fer a var­ied menu of drinks and snacks when it opens later this year as well as a view of the new land­scaped gar­dens.

Sa­muel Maierovits, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Hud­son Health­care, said: “The last few months have been busy for all at Lornebank Care Cen­tre, cul­mi­nat­ing in the grand sum­mer fete.

“Res­i­dents, staff and fam­i­lies are ex­cited by the prospect that they will soon be able to en­joy and ben­e­fit from the en­hanced fa­cil­i­ties. Thank you to all who have con­trib­uted and made this great achieve­ment pos­si­ble.

“We are all thrilled that the works at the home are en­ter­ing their fi­nal stages which, when com­plete, will en­able us to of­fer the same high stan­dard of care to a greater num­ber of res­i­dents.” Hamil­ton’s Blame­less Char­ity will host a fam­ily Hal­loween cel­e­bra­tion at the White­hill Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 28. The fancy dress event will also fea­ture Magic Den’s Mag­i­cal Hal­loween Spec­tac­u­lar Show, and will run from 4pm to 6pm.
