A fun-filled open day and garden party to mark the official opening of Heath Lodge Community Haven on York Road has raised over £500 for the home.

Staff at the 30-bed care home, which is managed by Harrogate Neighbours and provides residential and specialist dementia care, arranged an afternoon of entertainment, including prize packed raffle & tombola, live music, games for all ages and homemade cake sale to welcome in the community.

Residents, relatives, local councilors, friends and members of North Yorkshire Council all attended to find out more about the care service available through Heath Lodge Community Haven.

Chief Operating Officer, Denise McEvoy said, “The move to Boroughbridge is exciting and has already opened up so many opportunities to broaden our care for older people living in the community.

“Part of this is our collaboration with Boroughbridge Community Care, where our services aim to complement theirs to support our residents and the wider community,

“In collaboration with Boroughbridge Community Care, we hope to provide additional services into the community, such as our award-winning meals on wheels in the not so distant future.”

Karen Parker, General Manager at Boroughbridge Community Care added, “We are delighted to welcome Heath Lodge Community Haven to Boroughbridge, and we look forward to partnering with them to provide the best possible services to people living within our community.

“Our car transport scheme providing lifts to medical and wellbeing appointments is just one of the many services we provide and may benefit many residents at Heath Lodge Community Haven.”

Following a recent inspection by CQC (Care Quality Commissioner), Heath Lodge Community Haven received a ‘Good’ rating in all areas.
