A care home in Stroud has thanked those who have gone the extra mile to support residents throughout the coronavirus pandemic, from members of the community to its dedicated team.

Care UK’s Scarlet House, on Westward Road, has expressed its gratitude for the consideration and generosity shown by the people of Stroud over the past couple of months.

From volunteering, to delivering messages and artwork to brighten everyone’s day, individuals and organisations have pulled together to support the older members of the community.

Scarlet House has been inundated with support, receiving pressed flower cards from Althea Park House and ‘ear savers’ for team members from local residents Kirsty and Dawn.

Tasty treats have been delivered from the local Waitrose and Tesco branches, Frocester Fayre Farm Shop, and Cam Family Butchers, as well as chocolate eggs from Gloucester Constabulary, and a special delivery of bedding plants for the home’s garden from B&Q.

Whether it’s baking for a resident’s birthday, keeping the morale up through creative activities or fundraising by taking part in a 500 mile bike ride for the Alzheimer’s Society, team members at Scarlet House have also been praised for their dedication and relentless efforts over the past few months.

Kate Stevens, home manager at Scarlet House, said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported us over the past couple of months, whether that be through volunteering, sending tokens of appreciation, or delivering special ‘ear savers’ for our team members.

“Every single thought, message and gesture has helped to raise the spirits of our fantastic team and has brightened the days of residents missing their families. It really has kept everyone going.

“On behalf of everyone at Scarlet House, thank you so much.”

Scarlet House care home provides full-time residential, nursing, dementia care, as well as short-term respite care.
