• Cake arrangement at Edwardstow Court's Tea and Cake event

Edwardstow Court Care Centre is on the cusp of opening its doors to residents – recruitment is in full swing, furniture is in place, and excitement is bubbling.

Ahead of the residents officially move in, Edwardstow Court Care Centre invited the community to meet the team and take a look at the wonderful new facilities.

“We had more than 50 people attend, with some bringing their families with them to take a look around. The home was buzzing and the compliments flowed, with some saying it’s the nicest home they’ve been in and they would love to work here,” Home Manager, Marion Flett, said.

Four people arranged an interview to work in the home, while another four potential residents were shown the facilities. And as the event suggested, there was plenty of treats and sweets on offer with coffee and tea. The home’s cook made some delicious cakes and biscuits, which everyone enjoyed.

“It was a very worthwhile event, which created a positive response from all who came,” Marion said.

Edwardstow Court Care Centre will officially open on 26 March. Another event will take place on 7th March from 4pm – 7pm for local businesses, organisation and professionals involved in care to come in and meet the team.
