Care home staff have been praised for their top-quality care of vulnerable people at ‘the most difficult time imaginable’.

Judy Pride celebrated the efforts of Harbour Residential Care Centre in Portishead, where her 92-year-old father stayed for two weeks while his live-in carer took holiday.

She praised home manager Samuel Okello and his ‘outstanding team’ for their ‘excellent handling’ of the Covid-19 pandemic, and confirmed the centre has never seen a case of coronavirus.

Judy said: “We have been delighted with the care my father has received at Harbour Residential, and he would like to say a big thank you to all the lovely staff and the chef who produced such plentiful, high-quality food at every meal. The home feels like a home-from-home, where all the staff and residents are a family.”

Home manager Samuel expressed his ‘sincerest gratitude’ to Judy for her kind words.
