Charlotte Grange Care Home in Flaxton Street, Hartlepool, which is part of the award-winning charity Community Integrated Care, held an Open Afternoon on Friday 10th May to celebrate the completion of refurbishment work in the home following a capital grant from the local council.
The Mayor of Hartlepool, Cllr Allan Barclay attended the event and was impressed with the home and the refurbishment work done, particularly the potting shed area, which gives residents who enjoy gardening an area for them. A green house for the garden will be a great addition to this area.
The home welcomed visitors, which included relatives and community organisations. They also welcomed pupils from the local primary school Ward Jackson who are regular visitors to the home spending time with time chatting with residents and playing games with them.
The home was delighted that Siobhan Bookless, Contracts & Quality Officer at Hartlepool Council was able to attend the event and was delighted with the completed refurbishment work.
The home is continuing to make improvements in the home thanks to Olivia Springer, an art student at the local college who is volunteering at the home, working on some murals for the walls.
