Our Bournemouth care home, the Retired Nurses National Home (RNNH), was delighted to receive a donation of PPE. The generous surplus of protective equipment was provided by housing company Taylor Wimpey West London.
Staff at RNNH received protective face masks, gloves, protective disposable aprons, uniform wash bags and 3D printed visors to add to their existing supply.
Our Regional Director, Cheryl Rothschild, said: “As a charity it makes such a difference to Friends of the Elderly and the Retired Nurses National Care Home to be able to top our stock of Personal Protective Equipment.
“We are so thankful for this wonderful donation from Taylor Wimpey which allows us to continue to provide exceptional care to our residents safely.”
Taylor Wimpey is continuing efforts to support front line workers by donating a further 75,000 face masks, 75,000 aprons and roughly 38,000 pairs of gloves. The PPE will be delivered to around 50 care homes across the UK.
Gemma Bibby, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West London, says: “Our care workers do an amazing job and we want to play our part in supporting them in any way we can. From all of us at Taylor Wimpey, thank you to everyone at St Michael’s Hospice and Friends of the Elderly for the fantastic work you do every single day.”
