Care home offers ambulance crew chance to thaw out with warming cuppa

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.”
