Care home’s VIP event to mark opening

Rectory Court care home has been officially opened with a fantastic a VIP event attended by the Mayor of Lewisham, councilors from the boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham and representatives from local charities and businesses.

At the opening party, guests were able to network whilst enjoying musical entertainment, drinks and canapes, tours of the home and speeches from the management.

Before all the festivities on the day, Rectory Court had been asking local people to nominate a community champion, a person who deserves to be recognised for going above and beyond to make a difference to the lives of others locally.

The winner was Ivy Bainbridge from Greenwich, selected to open the home and be the champion of champions for the tireless work she has done for Mycenae House,  a community hub in SE3.

Gillian Gasby and Anne Newman, the other finalists and winners in their own right, also deserve a mention for the massive efforts they put into their local community for Age Exchange and The Stables, respectively.

The team at Rectory Court is now excited to be welcoming residents into their care, working with families to make it a positive and seemless experience for all.

The home’s ethos is to provide a home from home with an activity based, holistic approach to care, allowing residents to live well-in an environment that is built around them and to gain their own interests and life skills by tailoring our activity programme to suit.
