Our focus this month has been on keeping our residents entertained, and their minds active, whilst maintaining their safety. We've embraced the challenge of social distancing and have been continually thinking outside of the box to find ways for everyone to socialise safely.
Our residents are waiting patiently to see their loved ones again while we make careful plans to welcome visitors into our grounds once more.
Take a look at our Photo Gallery to see what's been happening at Richmond recently.

"To all the staff at Richmond Care Home. Many thanks for the excellent care you gave our mum, Dorothy, when she came to you for respite care. She always came home with a smile on her face and we will always be grateful to you for making her stays at Richmond so happy. Once again, a big thank you from us and the family!"
