2021 has been the most eventful year for Belmont Healthcare. Slowly recovering from the pandemic the Group had many things to look forward to and many things to celebrate.
The year saw the much anticipated unveiling and grand opening of the 1.5 million pound development and transformation of their New Romney residential care home Madeira Lodge.
Residents and their families were eventually reunited in person after more than 12 months of separation due to the pandemic.
Local schools Crowhurst CofE Primary School and The Marsh Academy struck up pen pal relationships with residents, extending their hand of friendship and love, with letters and cards containing positive messages of hope and support.
We launched an all-new customer friendly website expertly designed to help visitors access information about care services in Kent, East Sussex and Solihull. And our residents and care teams brought laughter back into our lives by authoring and publishing their very own Group-wide BIG Book of Jokes.
Inspired by the Olympians of the Tokyo Olympics 2020, and in the spirit of team GB Olympians, we held our own Olympic games seeing residents and their care teams having a lot of fun competing.
Our MD Adam Hutchison battled torrential rain and gale force winds trekking 25km of Hadrian’s Wall to raise money for The Care Workers' Charity.
And throughout all of that we announced a pay rise and winter bonus in recognition of the hard work and dedication delivered by our care teams.
Looks like 2022 has big boots to fill, but I’m sure we’ll have just as many positive events to share as the year gets underway.
