On Friday 6th September, a delegation from the Senior Citizens’ Welfare Department in South Korea visited Speirs House nursing care home in New Malden.
During the visit, the delegation was keen to understand admission procedures, how the residents were cared for and what training was given to care home staff. The visitors praised high staff ratio at the care home, employee benefits for staff working at Greensleeves Care and were also nicely surprised that one of Speirs House residents is still driving at the age of 88. As a token of their gratitude, delegates gave Speirs House a Certificate of Appreciation.
One of the visitors, Chunmin Lim, said: “Speirs House is getting very famous in South Korea following the previous visit, this is what made us want to pay Speirs House a visit. This visit gave us a good opportunity to learn from the care home’s advanced policies as well as promote friendly relations between our two countries.”
Kathleen Liang, Home Manager at Speirs House, added: “We were delighted to welcome another international delegation at Speirs House. As at other Greensleeves Care homes, one of our objectives at Speirs House is to have a wider impact in the communities we serve, we are glad that we are in this journey together to act as an agent to shaping future health care.”
Speirs House provides high quality nursing care to people living in New Malden and surrounding areas.
