A recent open day at Denison House has been hailed a fantastic success.
The event – which took place on Thursday 2nd May – saw our home visited by numerous guests, who spent time with residents, their friends and family. During the day, we welcomed a visit from Selby Mayor Eva Lambert, as well as Valorum’s Robin Sidebottom (Chairman), Tom Parramore (CEO), Paula Waddington (Managing Director), and numerous employees.
A singer from Bluebird Entertainment sang a repertoire of songs from the ‘40s through to the ‘70s and these were a huge hit with residents and visitors alike. Those who would usually catch 40 winks during the afternoon remained wide awake throughout, dancing and singing along with the tunes.
Refreshments were provided by our in-house cook, and family and friends were able to join their loved ones for plenty of food and drink – enough to feed Selby for a week! Meanwhile, activities included ‘hook a bottle’, a tombola, a raffle, and a name the teddy bear competition which helped raise almost £200!
Denison House Manager Helen Oldfield, along with the team at Valorum Care and Fairhome Construction have worked wonders on Denison House, transforming our home both visually and strategically. We are now able to meet the specific needs of our residents in a suitable environment and our 30-bed care home is already fully occupied.
From the internal decoration of the property, to the external areas and beyond, Denison House looks immaculate. All members of staff are decked out in smart new uniforms and the level of care and interaction with residents is wonderful.
A well-deserved pat on the back to everyone involved in the refurbishment of Denison House. The open day highlighted the great work that has been achieved, ensuring this was a day to be proud of.
