Staff at Country Court’s Lakeview Lodge Care Home in Bletchley, Milton Keynes received a ‘Thank You’ gift from the Kachra family, owners of the Country Court group this week. The company operates 32 care homes across the UK employing over 2000 staff, all of whom will receive the gifts as thanks for their continued work caring for the some of the most vulnerable people in society.
Country Court CEO Alykhan Kachra said “Our staff have been amazing throughout this pandemic, putting our residents before themselves and their own families. Many have worked long hours and extra shifts, we felt they deserved a treat, and this would be a great way to say thank you and to acknowledge the sacrifices that people continue to make”.
At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic the group delivered a ‘Care Package’ to every member of staff consisting of over 20 items including food, drink and basic provisions to help with day to day life whilst food and basic provisions were scarce. The latest gift package includes treats to enjoy at the end of a working day including Prosecco, Chocolate, Country Court Jellybeans, caramel shortbread and Shea Butter moisturising hand cream.
The thank you gifts have been very well received by the care home staff; Home Manager Claire Hedge commented “We would like to say a huge thank you to the Kachra family for the lovely gifts, generosity and continued support. The pandemic has been challenging for everyone but here at Lakeview Lodge we are very proud of all our staff and their continued hard work to keep our residents and each other safe.”
Chairman of Country Court, Abdul Kachra said “We want to thank every single member of staff in our care homes for their continued commitment. We hope that this token of our appreciation will be a nice treat that they can take home and enjoy at the end of a hard day’s work”.
The Country Court group operates 32 nursing and care homes which are working to support elderly people throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Founded in 1983, it is a Family-run business to this day, with the company philosophy “Our family caring for yours” at the heart of every home.
