Managing Director of Eastgate Care, Janine Morgan said ‘Friendship at our care homes is one of the key elements that enables us to develop relationships and work together as a team and as friends and carers of our residents. Friendship is the theme for this year’s National Care Home Day, it is good to emphasise the importance of this part of care, to acknowledge the work of care homes throughout the UK and the dedication of staff offering their special support.
