A WORSBROUGH care home has thanked generous residents after a ‘difficult time’ during lockdown.

Highstone Mews Care Home, on Highstone Road, have been inundated with toiletries, smart tablets and board games in the last four months after residents and staff were forced to self-isolate during the height of the pandemic.

Michael Dudley-Smith, head of operations, said: “We would like to give a massive thank you to our local community, businesses and our fantastic families who have provided a massive morale boost to staff and our residents at the home.

“The past few months have been so very difficult for everyone, but the generosity, love and support shown by everyone has been fantastic and made a real difference.

“We have had donations of cakes, treats, toiletries, board games, smart tablets, and DVDs helping us to keep our residents happy and entertained through this difficult time.

“We have received letters and cards of good will and heartfelt thanks for the work we have done.

“We are very proud of the staff at Highstone Mews, and especially proud of the people in our community who have been so kind and thoughtful.”
