Port Talbot care home residents learn about Ramadan

12 July 2016

Residents and staff at Plas Cwm Carw Care Home shared an evening with families from the Port Talbot Mosque and Islamic Centre recently when members called in as part of their Ramadan celebrations.

The time spent together was said to have been thoroughly enjoyed by the residents. Members of the Mosque shared food from the Islamic culture with their neighbours, and explained the traditions of Ramadan.

Manager Sandra Vernal said, “It was lovely to see the faces of the residents as they were introduced to the children and learnt about Ramadan. I am very grateful to the leaders of the Mosque who organised the event and for the families to visit our Home.”

One of the home’s oldest residents, 101-year-old Tom Jones, gave a speech on behalf of all the residents thanking the families for their kindness.

The company which owns Plas Cwm Carw, HC-One, is also celebrating achieving a 9.4 average rating on the sector’s leading care home comparison website Carehome.co.uk. The high rating puts HC-One homes into the very best company in the care home sector, committed to providing kind care to Residents.

HC-One Regional Managing Director Liz Whyte said: “In all of our HC One Homes we are keen for residents to meet and interact with members of the local community so we’re very pleased to hear HC One Plas Cwm Carw residents have had this opportunity with their neighbours from the local Mosque. I would like to thank everyone involved.”
