Inspired by the choir, we had the karaoke box out and residents and staff alike loved showing off their singing talents. One gentleman even used it to sing to his wife for her birthday. It was such a beautiful moment. We are also looking into how our residents may be able to get involved with some of the pen pal schemes that students and local universities have been setting up.
Small acts of kindness such as these mean the world to the residents and staff at this challenging time.
Palms Row will provide all of the necessary support to make sure that ongoing care for residents continues in the same high standards that we have provided for many years, but we will also continue to put pressure on those who make the decisions not to forget about care homes during this crisis.
The Sheffield Care Association will continue to push for more support from the Council and will ensure councillors and decision makers are held to account.
