Social care minister plants tree at Faversham home

Helen Whately MP met residents and staff at Anchor’s Canterbury House care home and planted a tree to commemorate the visit.

The minister of state for social care – and Faversham and Mid Kent MP – was joined by Anchor chief executive Sarah Jones and managing director of care services Rob Martin for a tour of Canterbury House, during which she chatted with residents and found out about the range of care services available at the home.

Canterbury House care home manager Rachel Dadwa-As said: “We were thrilled to have our local MP and social care minister visit us at Canterbury House. The residents enjoyed meeting her and we spoke about the person-centred care services we provide at the home. The tree planted in the grounds will also be a great memory of the occasion for many years to come.”

Anchor chief executive Sarah Jones said: “We were delighted to host Helen at Anchor’s Canterbury House care home. I know the residents and team really enjoyed speaking with her and it was a great opportunity for Helen to see firsthand, how our care colleagues are committed to delivering the highest standards of care and serving the local community.”

Helen Whately MP added: “It was such a pleasure to meet staff and residents at Canterbury House. The warm atmosphere they’ve worked hard to create is obvious from the moment you walk in. As care minister I see every day the difference that care like this makes to people’s lives, and it’s great to have them locally.”
