On Thursday 30 May, Kevan visited Stoneleigh Care Home in Annfield Plain with Dr. Chai Patel, the Chairman of HC-One, the company that owns Stoneleigh.

Kevan and Dr Patel were given a tour of the home’s recently refurbished premises. They were also given an overview of the home’s many activities, including arts and craft seminars and they even participated in that day’s chair exercises activities! After enjoying a delicious lunch at the home, Kevan Jones MP and Dr Chai Patel were then able to spend some time speaking to residents and staff about everything from their newly refurbished premises to the wide range of daily activities that take place at the home.

Kevan said, “I was very pleased to be able to visit Stoneleigh with Chai, and was very impressed with the facilities on offer. I have visited the home before and have always been struck by the quality of the care provided, and it was great to have the opportunity to raise awareness about National Care Home Open Day later this month. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time chatting to residents and learning more about the activities on offer to them.”
