Local MP Rosie Cooper visited Birch Green recently as part of our National Care Home Open Day celebrations.
The initiative is a national programme which aims to highlight the great work being done in care homes across the UK.
Those homes taking part are urged to open their doors and welcome members of the local community to see for themselves the activities and lifestyle on offer.
Rosie Cooper is MP for West Lancashire, and takes a special interest in health issues and the NHS, including time spent as chair of Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
It was a great chance to show her what life is like at Birch Green for our residents, families and staff.
Birch Green General Manager Carol Nickeas was on hand to show Rosie around, along with Ken Nolan, Springhill Care Group Chairman, and Donna Briggs, Managing Director.
Visitors to the home were able to enjoy the fantastic weather, with refreshments, a barbecue, musical entertainment and a bouncy castle on offer.
Carol Nickeas said: “National Care Home Open Day is a great opportunity to really show what life is like in a busy care home.
“We take great pride in helping our residents enjoy life to the full, and there are so many activities and events taking place that it’s great to be able to highlight the work our staff do every day.
“Rosie has been a great advocate for health issues over the years, and we thoroughly enjoyed showing her round.”
MP Rosie Cooper said: “I was delighted to join Ken, Carol and the residents of Birch Green Care Home in celebrating National Care Home Open Day. From visiting the home over several years I know they work hard for their residents.”
