Residents at Shelburne Lodge care home in High Wycombe, run by Barchester Healthcare, celebrated National Carers’ Week, which took place from Tuesday 6th to Sunday 11th June 2023.

Residents wanted to thank all the wonderful staff at the home, whose hard work and dedication make a real difference to the lives of those living in their care.

Carers Week is an annual event to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges carers face, and recognising the contribution they make to our residents, families and communities throughout the UK. The theme for Carers Week 2023 was ‘Making caring visible, valued and supported’ – to shine a light on all those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to care for vulnerable people in our communities.

Staff were treated to a summer party in the garden. Head chef Alexandru Ungureanu had put together a wonderful spread of party food for everyone to enjoy. Family and friends arrived throughout the afternoon to join in the fun with staff and residents. Residents also gave out certificates of thanks for all that they do.

Diana Nica, General Manager at Shelburne Lodge, said: ‘It is so wonderful to be able to celebrate Carers Week and thank our fantastic carers with a party, and to be able to welcome the community, relatives and friends. Everyone has had such a fantastic day.

Ruby, a resident at Shelburne Lodge, said: ‘We’ve all had such a lovely time today, it really is a joy to be able to thank our wonderful carers for all that they do. They really are heaven sent.

The varied life enrichment programme at Shelburne Lodge keeps residents active and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.

Shelburne Lodge is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering high-quality care across its care homes and hospitals. Shelburne Lodge provides nursing care and respite care.
