Lawn Park Care Home in Sutton in Ashfield was humbled to receive a cheque from the relative of two residents they used to care for.
Linda Marsh donated the money, as a way to thank the home for all they did to care and support the team at Lawn Park provided her parents Edna and Don Greggory.
Rosalind Kennedy-Brown, Home Manager, said: "We are very humbled to have received this donation. The team here do all they can to ensure the residents in their care are treated with care and kindness. Their treatment is based solely around them. We were all upset when we heard of the passing of Mr and Mrs Gregory, they were both great characters in the home."
The home wanted to spend this special donation on items that would benefit the residents in their care, helping them to make the most of their experience at Lawn Park.
With this in mind, the money was spent on a number of items including therapy dolls to help the residents suffering with dementia, and equipment for a sensory room which included lights and items the residents could touch and get lost in a world of imagination.
Rosalind Kennedy-Brown added: "We are very grateful for the money. The residents all benefit from these new additions to the homes and this is having an impact on their lives in a positive way, which is what we're all about here."
Linda Marsh, was a special guest at the grand unveiling of the sensory room on Tuesday 24th May 2016. She said: “The home cared for mum and dad superbly. Giving them this donation was the least I could do. The sensory room looks fantastic, although I don’t think my dad would be too impressed. He’d probably tell someone to turn the disco lights off, but that was the kind of character he was. It’s great to see the residents benefitting from all of these new items. It really means a lot to me.”
