Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Ten residents of Burgess Park Care Centre in Camberwell, London recently took in the sights of the city from the London Eye. Burgess Park general manager Martin Lewis said the residents, accompanied by staff and relatives, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. “Relatives are very much involved with all our activities which include musical events, beauty therapy and more,¹ Mr Lewis said. “Our next plan is to obtain a computer to enable our residents to learn further skills.” Burgess Park Care Centre is a 60-bed nursing home owned by Ashbourne Healthcare.
