Bristol South MP Karin Smyth visited Hartcliffe Nursing Home to mark National Care Home Open Day.
Hartcliffe Nursing Home, located in Murford Avenue, opened in 2002 on the site of a former boys’ club and currently provides nursing care and a home to 65 residents.
“I was impressed by the range of activities the staff at Hartcliffe Nursing Home provide for the 65 residents,” said Karin Smyth. “And it was terrific to have the opportunity to meet some of the people who live there and to find out how much they value not only their home, but the hard work and kindness of the staff and volunteers who look after them too.”
The aim of National Care Home Open Day, now in its third year, is to help connect care homes with their local communities, as well as challenge misconceptions about residential care and showcase services.
