The residents and staff of Huntercombe Hall care home in Nettlebed were thrilled when Earl Howe spent the day with them recently.
The Earl, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Department of Health and a member of the House of Lords, examined every aspect of the home’s care programme on his fact finding mission, with Home Manager Jane Andrews saying ‘He gave me the most incisive and wide ranging interview possible on health and care.’
Over an animated lunch, he also quizzed some of the residents, including David on his stamp collection, Gill on her theatrical experiences and professional actor Eve on her stage career. Huntercombe Hall Manager Jane Andrews was thrilled to have the opportunity to host Earl Howe:
‘It was lovely for us all to have the chance to meet Earl Howe and tell him about the events we run with the local community; he was very interested in the range of activities that we offer our residents at Huntercombe Hall.
Caring Homes is passionate about ensuring that the highest standards of care and we are always delighted to be able to show off our fantastic facilities!’
