Bulwell care home marks housekeeping week
and live on Freeview channel 276
Housekeeping week is an annual event held every September, dedicated to recognising the efforts of hard-working housekeeping staff around the world.
Hall Park residents and staff reminisced about how housekeeping has changed during their lifetime. Residents talked about when they first got domestic appliances such as washing machines and vacuum cleaners and how their lives were changed by advances in technology over the years.
Residents enjoyed helping the housekeeping team with a few odd jobs like helping fold bed linen and setting the tables for mealtime, as well as making cards for and writing letters to the housekeeping staff to say thank you.
Jodie Rakhra, home general manager said: “It is wonderful to be able to celebrate housekeeping week and thank our fantastic staff for all they do. I enjoyed seeing the residents get involved by helping out with the housekeeping.”
One resident said: “It is a joy to give back by helping and being able to thank our wonderful housekeepers.”
Hall Park’s varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.
