Dedicated staff at the

award-winning Angela Court Care Home have been forced to abandon their cars and

wade through more than a foot of water to get to work this morning – for the

second time in just four months.

Other staff members at the 37-bed

home, near Tipton St John, decided to stay over in a bid to ensure that there

would be enough staff to look after the elderly residents who suffer with

dementia.

Roads leading to the care home

were impossible to drive through after the River Otter broke its banks and

caused floods as deep as 24 inches.

Wayne Shermon, Operations

Director for PSP Healthcare which operates Angela Court Care Home, said:

"The weather overnight has been torrential and the roads leading to the

home have been completely unusable but the level of dedication from my care

team once again has been amazing.

"Only a few months ago we

had nurses, chefs and care staff leaving their cars and walking through up to 2

feet of floods to get to work and look after our residents and once again they

have done the same.

"Others have had to stay

over in available rooms to ensure the residents receive their medication. I

would like to say a big thank you to all my staff for all their help and

dedication."

Angela Court Nursing home, which

is operated by the innovative PSP Healthcare, offers a variety of rooms and specialises in dementia & Alzheimer's disease care.

 

It boasts an excellent reputation for providing high

quality care for some of the most vulnerable adults in the community.
