Steyning care home celebrates 10 years of delivering care


A Steyning care home is celebrating 10 years of delivering care for its residents.

Croft Meadow care home marked the milestone with a celebratory cake, drinks and afternoon tea. Residents, staff and family members were entertained by local singer, Kate Bassett, who sang a mixture of old-time favorites and modern hits, while the grandson of resident Bruce Beresford-Theurer supported on the keyboard.

Local councillors Kate Rowbottom and Tim Lloyd joined the festivities alongside Alun Thomas, chairman of Shaw healthcare, which operates the home. The event concluded with a talk about the history of Steyning from Ian Ivatt at the Steyning History Society.

Sharalee Thrumble, home manager, commented: “The recent celebrations were a way to say ‘thanks’ to our hard-working staff and provide a fun-filled afternoon for our residents and their families. The residents especially enjoyed the musical performance, providing them a throwback to their youth – a well-known way of supporting those suffering with memory-loss issues.”

Croft Meadow provides residential care for up to 60 residents including those living with dementia. Shaw healthcare provides a spectrum of services from comprehensive care packages through to low level support in the community for older people and adults with physical, sensory or mental health support needs.
