Hulcott Nursing Home in Aylesbury welcomed participants of the Great British Cycle Relay as part of their Care Home Open Week celebrations.
Colleagues and residents gave a warm welcome to the cyclists as they arrived at the home and were provided with a range of refreshments including fresh fruit pots and homemade protein balls along with hydrating waterADE drinks.
In a bid to connect and celebrate social care at the heart of every community, the Cycle Relay visited several care homes across the country.
Hulcott’s Site Maintenance Officer, Laurentiu Robu, joined the relay, cycling over 35 miles from the previous home in Banbury. In reflection, Laurentiu said, “the experience will last with me forever.”
The following morning, the cyclists were treated to bacon sandwiches made by Hulcott’s chefs, before setting off to their next destination.
Hosted by Championing Social Care, Care Home Open Week, held 26th June – 2nd July, is an annual event that celebrates the valuable contributions of care homes and promotes transparency, understanding, and engagement within the care sector.
In addition, Hulcott celebrated with a Hawaiian themed BBQ that was well attended by residents and the local community.
Home Manager Emma Fielder commented, “Care Home Open Week provided us with an opportunity to invite the members of the local community into our home to show how care homes are a wonderful place to live and work.”
