Staff and residents at a care home in Lincoln were joined by the mayor to celebrate the launch of a new home care service.
The Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Keith Weaver, was invited to launch the new service at Bernadette House and to learn more about the valuable home care that care workers would be providing to the local community.
Owner of Bernadette House care home and home care service, Elizabeth Stephens, welcomed the mayor and introduced him to home care staff as well as local health partners who also attended the event.
Stephens comments: “We were honoured to have the Mayor of Lincoln and councillor Chris Burke join us to celebrate the launch of our new home care service.
“I was delighted to introduce him to Bernadette Homecare and share with him the plans we have to expand our healthcare service within the area to those who have care and support needs at home.”
Following the cake cutting, the mayor enjoyed refreshments with social workers, staff and other members of the community, who attended the event.
The mayor said he was pleased to see a “care home with a strong reputation progressing into new business areas that will service the community.”
Bernadette’s Homecare offers the same high standard of care delivered to residents of the care home, but out in the local community. All aspects of personal care are provided including assistance with administration of medication, preparation of meals and general housework. The service also offers companionship and live-in care.
