Loving your neighbour

Staff at a care home run by the Abbeyfield Society celebrated Valentine’s Day “sharing the love” in their local community by giving out gifts.  Speedwell Court sits at the heart of Southampton’s West End, where staff at the dementia-friendly home for 80 residents have been encouraged to create personalised gifts for older people living nearby.  A competition among staff for the most original gift idea was won by Jennifer Varney, who was awarded an espresso coffee machine and is pictured (right) receiving it from deputy manager Ewa Sojka.
