Care home receives visit from the PM
The Excelcare family were delighted to welcome Prime Minister Boris Johnson to their Westport Care Home this week.
The Excelcare family were delighted to welcome prime minister Boris Johnson, health secretary Sajid Javid and chancellor of the exchequer Rishi Sunak to their Westport Care Home this week.
The trio visited the home on Tuesday ahead of the PM’s social care reformation announcement in the Houses of Parliament.
It was chosen for the visit because of how well it managed the risk of Covid-19 and the fact that all staff were fully vaccinated before it became the law.
Upon arrival at the home in Stepney Green, the trio met with Excelcare’s owner Osman Ertosun and chief operating officer Sam Manning. The group discussed the impact that Covid-19 has had on the care home, the importance of ongoing recognition for the work of frontline team members as well as the need to support care homes with the cost of delivering care.
The Prime Minister and his colleagues then spent time with residents for arts and crafts and games.
A spokesman for Excelcare said: “Elbow farewells and waves were given to all by Boris, Sajid and Rishi, leaving everyone feeling very honoured and delighted to have been the chosen care home for this very special visit.”
