Droitwich care home opens its doors to local community


A Droitwich care home has opened its doors to the local community for its annual summer fair.

Ravenstone Care Home, which is based on St Andrews Road, welcomed friends and relatives from the local community to celebrate with the residents in the sunshine.

One resident, John Tarleton, took the role of Ravenstone Mayor, and opened the fair with a speech to residents and guests.

The residents transformed the home’s garden into a stage, welcoming local musician Linda Hartley to perform live music. Linda was also entertaining both younger relatives and the young at heart with her Rock ‘n’ Roll Puppet Show.

The fair raised £170 for the home, and will be used to pay for treats and activities for the residents.

Hayley Scarborough, Peripatetic Manager at Ravenstone, said: “Larchwood Care is keen for residents to meet and interact with the local community and we are pleased that so many people from the surrounding area attended this year’s summer fete.

“Ravenstone encourages residents to be involved with projects such as this, and many of our residents, including John, the Mayor of Ravenstone, were involved in the planning of the fair, and they got a lot of enjoyment from it.

“We pride ourselves on the range of activities on offer both, on a group and individual basis, as it is important that residents’ interests and hobbies are catered for.  Everyone had a fantastic time, and we look forward to welcoming local people back to the home for another event soon.”

Ravenstone Care Home forms part of Larchwood Care and is managed by Larchwood Care. The service provides residential care for up to 41 older people.
