Dounemount celebrations for Care Home Open Day were extra special this year, as the home also celebrated being open for 25 years.
“It wasn’t just the home that we celebrated,” explained Sylvia Nicoll, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Grampian. “The Home Manager Kay Robertson and Lorna Matthews have been at Dounemount since it opened. I want to say a huge congratulations to these two, because it’s not very often you hear of two people serving 25 years with the same home.
“This has made celebrating Care Home Open Day extra special this year. I want to thank local councillor John Cox and Stewart Stevenson MSP for coming to the home and presenting our two ladies with their long service awards.”
As well as celebrating the awards, the residents were treated to singing and music by a local entertainer, to add to the party atmosphere.
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Events like the one at Dounemount Care Home will help to create lasting links between the residents and their local community.
Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.
