Residents were in high spirits recently when they received a visit from Councillor Norman MacRae MBE, Chairman of West Oxfordshire District Council.
Following his visit to our sister home, Rosebank, Mr MacRae expressed an interest in visiting Churchfields to meet with residents and see the latest improvements to the care home.
As part of the visit, Norman took a tour of the home and met with staff and residents, enjoying an afternoon tea and sing-along with Roger from the local parish.
Norman said, “I had a most enjoyable time visiting Churchfields and meeting so many lovely, happy people, residents and staff alike. Both Rosebank and Churchfields generate a feeling of true homeliness and the staff obviously have a caring attitude for the residents.”
Jane Roberts, owner at Churchfields, commented: “Our residents were thrilled to receive a visit from Norman. He made a real effort to sit and listen to their thoughts and we’d love to welcome him back again in the future.”
Churchfields is preparing to host an official celebration to showcase the extensive refurbishment work that has been carried out over the past year. Residents will benefit from new bedrooms, bathrooms, sitting areas and a landscaped courtyard.
Led by husband and wife team Jane and Gerry Roberts, Churchfields offers residential and nursing care for elderly people in the community. Situated close to St Peter’s Church in one of the oldest and most picturesque parts of the village, the home prides itself on taking an active role in the local community.
