Local lady Irene Hadley moves into the area’s most modern care facility.
This week Sheffield’s newest care home, Herries Lodge, welcomed its first resident, Irene Hadley, into her new home.
Mrs Hadley, who was born in Sheffield in 1926, worked for British Road Services and then was a secretary for the National Coal Board in Fulwood until she retired. Mrs Hadley has two sons, Philip and Anthony, four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Irene loves to shop and used to enjoy holidays and dancing with her late husband.
A buffet was served and Mrs Hadley was presented with a bunch of flowers by Ideal Care Homes’ Managing Director, Mark Greaves, and a celebratory bottle of champagne by Herries Lodge Manager Karen Zaman.
Mark Greaves, Managing Director of Ideal Care Homes said:
“We never under estimate what a big step it is moving into a new environment, but I know that Karen and her team of carers will go to every length to make sure the move for all our residents is as smooth as possible.”
Since the public open day on Saturday 7th April, there has been massive interest in Herries Lodge which is a testament to Ideal Care Homes’ offer of affordable, quality care and also the demand for care in the Sheffield area.
All 34 homes in the Ideal Care Homes group welcome both private and Local Authority residents, and do not charge top-up fees making the homes great places providing quality care that people can afford to live in.
