THIS week's 'Stars of the Week' are residents at Rivermead care home in Norton who are celebrating being able to go on trips out again as lockdown restrictions ease.

Sarah Jackson, General Manager at Rivermead said: “We couldn’t be happier that our residents can start to go out again with their named visitor. Obviously we still have to be careful so we’re testing visitors before they take residents out but it is wonderful that our residents can spend time with their families out of the home. It really feels like we’ve turned a corner.”

Lena, a resident at Rivermead said: “I am just so happy that I am able to spend some quality time with Caroline again. We have been able to keep in touch through phone calls and using the visiting suite but it is fantastic to be able to go out and about again, life really does feel like it is starting to get back to normal. I am so grateful to the staff for keeping us safe and for all they have done.”
