Chiltern Grange Opening Ceremony & Reception in the company of Angela Rippon
Broadcaster, Journalist and Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador Angela Rippon performed the official opening of the new Chiltern Grange Care Home in Stokenchurch on Friday 18th October. The event was attended by residents, family and friends, invited guests and the senior management of the Porthaven care home group, who built and manage the home. Ms Rippon is well known for her hard work in educating and helping wider society in understanding dementia. A firm favourite with fans of the BBC One’s Nine O’Clock News, she was the first female journalist to present the BBC national television news on a permanent basis.
Angela shared her intimate knowledge of the care industry in a moving talk which captured the spirit of the day guests, residents and staff all enjoyed the event thoroughly. “I have visited many Care Homes in my life. To me, Chiltern Grange Care Home ticks all the right boxes”. Commented Angela, helping keep Chiltern Grange’s reputation as one of the leading care homes in the UK for resident care and activity.
Michael Bennell, a Porthaven resident, also provided guests with a moving speech, praising the Chiltern Grange team and reminding us all of our duty to care for our fellow man.
A national award winner for its varied programme of activity and entertainment, the home continues with its full calendar of events, whilst striving to provide the best possible resident experience through stylish, homely accommodation and exceptional care.
Marlyn MacDougall, Porthaven’s Operations Director comments…“This was a great celebration. It is a privilege to serve our residents, but occasions like these help us to celebrate the great work of our team at Chiltern Grange. As you would expect, Angela Rippon was hugely entertaining and stirred the emotions especially in the light of her unique experience, the issue of care for older people.”
