Stephen Timms today visited Mornington Hall Residential and Nursing Home in Manor Park. During the visit he spent time with both residents and staff and had a tour of the facilities and was “delighted by the contribution the home is making in caring for the elderly in Manor Park”. He was shown round by the Manager, Catherine Komukangi.
Mornington Hall, run by Bupa, is a recently refurbished and purpose built care facility. Bupa Care Services is the second largest provider of care for older people in the UK, looking after over 18,000 people, 70 per cent of whom are financed in whole or in part by the state. Bupa care homes provide a range of residential, nursing and respite care, as well as specialist dementia care.
Speaking after the visit, Mr Timms said: “Caring for the elderly must be one of society’s priorities and Mornington Hall is a high quality facility right here in Manor Park. It was terrific to spend time with some of the residents and hear their individual stories as well as meet the staff that work so hard.”
Mr Timms was particularly pleased to meet Merle Kong, an old friend who now lives at Mornington Hall.
