Morris Care has held a Care Awareness Day where residents of the Corbrook Park care home and villagers from Audlem came to learn more about their local care services.
Joining the local community, residents and their families from Corbrook Park were given the opportunity to learn more about their local care and emergency services from the professionals, including representatives from local hospitals, hospices and community first responders.
The educational event included stalls from St Luke's Hospice, Ableworld, local provider of caring equipment and national charity, Help the Aged. There were also cake and crafts stalls, a large display of vintage cars and tractors and tombola to keep everyone entertained.
The Audlem Community First Responders, who provide emergency medical care in the local village, also attended the event, bringing their ambulance along to give residents and villagers the chance to see what is involved with each emergency call out.
The Care Awareness Day raised a total of £130 which was donated to the volunteers of the Audlem Community First Responders as a gift from the nursing home.
Following the event, visitors were treated to afternoon tea prepared by Morris Care's Executive Chef, all served in Corbrook Park's spacious grounds.
Adding to the atmosphere, live music and entertainment were also provided featuring a range of musical performances from the Huff and Ladies District Choir and a selection of melodies played by the guitarist Chris Grinds.

Tracey Williams, Corbrook Court's Social Life Coordinator, said; "It was a lovely day thoroughly enjoyed by all. It's great to see that our Care Awareness Day had such a good turnout, as this really helps raise awareness, of how to care for elderly relatives and what nursing homes can offer."
With seven nursing homes situated in the vicinity of Shropshire and Cheshire, each has a dedicated Social Life Coordinator who organises activities ranging from gentle exercise classes, performers and entertainers to restaurant evenings and day trips.
