Meon Valley MP, George Hollingbery visited luxury care home, Wellington Vale in Waterlooville to update residents on current affairs.
He attended the care home with local councillors Caroline Brook, Paul Buckley and Peter Wade and engaged with the residents who were keen to find out more about Brexit, social care, public transport and local initiatives such as new amenities and buildings coming to Waterlooville.
Chris Roby, Home Admissions Advisor at Wellington Vale, part of the Cinnamon Care Collection, comments, “It is very important to us that our residents feel part of the local community and maintain connections with the wider world. When one of our residents mentioned she was unaware of what’s going on in the news, we contacted George Hollingbery MP who kindly agreed to come to Wellington Vale and provide our residents with a briefing. The session was attended by 15 residents and three other family members, who all thoroughly enjoyed meeting George Hollingbery, having a lovely Q&A session and listening to his views on national and local issues.”
George Hollingbery MP added, “I very much enjoyed my visit to Wellington Vale to speak to residents about a range of local and national topics. The big challenges facing our country at the moment, Brexit most of all, are still creating debate and ideas and it was good to hear what residents had to say.
“Getting out and about in the Meon Valley to meet constituents means I really get to grips with how people feel about the big issues of the day and I thank Wellington Vale for the invitation.”
Wellington Vale has 80 en-suite rooms and offers residential care, dementia care, convalescent care and respite care. In addition, the care home has recently opened a 26 bed nursing environment to cater for residents with higher care needs.
Wellington Vale is part of the Cinnamon Care Collection, an exclusive group of luxury care homes and retirement villages, all with a focus on great design and outstanding care. For further information, please visit www.cinnamoncc.com or contact Chris Roby on 02392 240 486.
