Care centre residents were delighted to receive cards and presents sent by their nearest and dearest this Valentine’s day. 

All items were cleaned and isolated for 72 hours before being given to recipients to mitigate any risk of coronavirus transmission.

Harbour Residential Care Centre residents also tucked into a special Valentine’s-themed meal on the day itself.  

Spearheaded by the home’s unit manager, Eva Healova, residents kicked off celebrations a few weeks ago by making hand-made cards for their loved ones.
