Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland visited Bupa’s Woodlands View care home last week to meet staff, a selection of the 120 residents, and Richie, the VIP cat at the home in Poplars. He was met by home manager Marianne Allen and Bupa’s regional director for the South East, Rhona McLeod for a tour of one of the home’s four houses, stopping in on residents along the way to speak to them about their life experiences and their time at the home.
Stephen said, “I want to thank Marianne, her staff, and the residents at Bupa’s Woodlands View care home, for taking the time to show me around and making me feel so welcome.It was great to hear so many wonderful stories and, of course, to meet Richie. I look forward to returning to the home for one of their upcoming events in the community.”
Home manager, Marianne Allen said of the visit, “It was a joy to show Mr McPartland around and introduce him to our residents, our fantastic staff. We’ve recently undergone a £400,000 refurbishment in the home and we were delighted to show some of its best features to our local MP.”
