The first year anniversary for Stevenson Village
It has been a year since HBH purchased Stevenson Village and the community is going from strength to strength. Helen Parkinson, the social co-ordinator, visits each week and spends time with the residents. Sometimes they get together for a catch-up and a chat in the main activity room and other times they come together for a more planned activity such as bingo or a games afternoon.
“It’s a wonderful community of residents. Many are involved in the Howick community and participate in various activities but they also enjoy spending time together,” says Helen. “Once a week they share a meal together in the main activity room and they run a bingo session every Wednesday afternoon.”
HBH is gradually upgrading the units and making sure that any maintenance requirements are dealt with quickly. “Overall, I think the residents feel well-supported and very pleased that HBH has come on board,” says Helen.
