A care home held a big birthday bash to mark a decade of success.
Earsdon Grange care home, in Wellfield, Whitley Bay, celebrated its tenth anniversary with a party featuring live entertainment, a buffet and champagne reception, for residents, staff and well-wishers.
Residents and their families were joined by families of former residents, those who had stayed at the home for short term respite breaks and healthcare professionals.
Also at the party was the home’s longest serving member of staff, care assistant Ruth Galloway who has been with the home since it opened in 2005. She was presented with flowers and champagne from care manager Nicola Bell.
Nicola said: “It was a brilliant day for all involved. Despite the awful weather the home was packed and everyone was in great spirits.
“We are really touched by the huge show of support from residents, families and friends of Earsdon Grange.
“There really was no better way to celebrate the home’s 10th birthday.”
Earsdon Grange care home is owned by UK care provider Countrywide Care Homes.
Regional Director Stephen Young said: “Congratulations to Nicola and her team at Earsdon Grange for reaching the ten year milestone.
“We are very proud of the care standards, whilst still keeping the homely, welcoming feel that many homes can only strive to achieve.”
