Avid listeners of BBC Radio Lancashire will have heard Birch Green’s general manager Carol Nickeas on the airwaves recently.
Birch Green has teamed up with activities coordinator Lesley Malone from the Abbey Wood Lodge Nursing Home in Ormskirk, to get involved in a new care forum set up by Lesley, which aims to connect care homes across West Lancashire and allow them to share activities and ideas.
Carol was joined by our new deputy manager John Henderson as they took part in John Gillmore’s afternoon radio show, which was broadcast live from Abbey Wood Lodge. They were invited to speak on the special radio programme to discuss Birch Green’s support of the care forum and issues relating to the care sector, such as dementia.
Other guests included Councillor Nikki Hennessy, Ian Williamson from Silverline and our friend Joe Sherville, local Dementia Friends Champion.
It was a great opportunity to speak about the great work Birch Green does, as well as meeting new people to discuss issues affecting the care sector.
Our residents have already enjoyed days out with Lesley and residents from Abbey Wood, and are looking forward to future get-togethers.
