A Bridlington care home, which provides specialist support for adults with learning disabilities, recently marked its 40th year of operation.
Kirkgate House, part of the not for profit organisation Hica Group, recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
To mark the occasion, the home held an open afternoon on March 8, where residents and staff, and anyone who has been associated with Kirkgate House over the last 40 years celebrated the anniversary.
The open day was also an opportunity for everyone to look around the facilities and for previous staff to see how much has changed over the 40 years.
Julie Wood, manager of Kirkgate House, said: “Our residents and staff members really enjoyed celebrating the 40th anniversary.
“It was fantastic to share memories, and welcome people who have supported or worked with Kirkgate over the last 40 years.”
Penni Brown, chief executive of the Hica Group, said: “Kirkgate House has an excellent team of passionate staff, who always go the extra mile to provide an outstanding level of care.
“For 40 years, staff have provided specialist care and support to residents with learning disabilities. It is great to see that so many people attended the open day and helped to mark the occasion.”
The Hica Group operates a portfolio of 15 care homes, five of which are for people with a learning disability, along with two retirement villages. The company also runs a care at home service providing approximately 11,500 hours of support and care from four regional offices in the North of England.
