Batley and Spen MP, Tracy Brabin said:
“It was a delight to visit Avery Mews Care Home in Heckmondwike and to join in their celebrations.
“I enjoyed chatting and taking part in afternoon tea with the lovely residents, and talking about issues such as the challenges facing the care sector, and the loneliness agenda with staff.
“I look forward to visiting more care homes and services for older people in the coming weeks, months and years, particularly as I continue to advocate projects to tackle loneliness”.
Tracey Simpson, Home Manager, said:
“As Tracy has made a transition from being an actress to become Batley & Spen MP serving local people, I invited her to see the reality of life for her constituents in a good care home and I am grateful she kindly accepted. Having her here means a lot to our staff and the residents.”
