Staff and residents at Martins House care home in Stevenage helped paramedics keep warm by offering them hot drinks, bacon sandwiches and a warm reception during last week’s snowy conditions.
The team at the Gold Care Homes facility in Jessop Road, Pin Green discovered the paramedics were shivering as they dropped off a new resident arriving for a stay at Martins House.
Seeing how cold the crew were, staff invited them in for a hot drink and offered them bacon sandwiches and the chance to meet other residents of the home who helped keep their spirits up with a quick chit-chat.
The home’s Manager, Julie Churchill, said: “When they came to the door we could see just how cold they were. We did what anyone else would and offered up our hospitality.
“They do such a fantastic job and all of our residents are very thankful for the journeys they make and care they provide. While our gesture was only small, I hope it helped cheer them up on what was a very wintery day.”
