Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, visited Springfield House Care Home, in Codsall last week.
While at the care home, Gavin was given a tour of the property and met with the residents and members of the staff. He joined a group of residents who were marking ‘Comic Relief’ and spoke with them as well as joining in with their performance of The Carpenters Sing.
Gavin also met with Ryan Wall, the Services Manager, and their Regional Manager Donna Crann. They discussed the building’s facilities and their patient care. Gavin learned about the different living options available to the residents and the wide variety of activities that the residents participate in.
Springfield House, a member of the Brighterkind Group of Care Homes, currently cares for around 56 residents. The house is run on a programme called the “Wishing Well” initiative. This programme allows the residents to submit ideas on special events, activities outings aiming to enrich the lives of those in their care and enabling the residents to feel valued during their stay.
On his visit, Gavin commented: “It was great to be invited to Springfield Care Home and to meet all the wonderful residents. It was great to see the fantastic facilities that the Home has to offer and hearing about the amazing array of activities that they have on offer.
“It was incredible to see all the dedication that goes into making Springfield Care home a home for the residents. I enjoyed joining in their Comic Relief activities and hearing their stories both about their lives in and around Codsall. I look forward to returning to the Care Home and taking part in their future performances.”
