Holiday prize for carers

Have your say

WEARSIDERS who provide care for the elderly can win a break for two in a luxury spa hotel.

Wellburn Care Homes has launched a prize draw to find carers who go the extra mile to provide care for an elderly relative, friend or neighbour – and who may benefit from a well-earned break.

It is in recognition of the selfless contribution carers make, often without any support and to the detriment of their personal life and health.

The winner of the prize draw will be able to take a guest for a weekend at either the five-star Rockliffe Hall Hotel & Spa, near Darlington, or the four-star Lakeside Hotel & Spa in Lake Windermere.

They person they care for will also be offered a complimentary week-long stay at one of Wellburn’s 15 care homes, which includes Glenholme House in Roker and St Georges in Washington.

Managing director Karl Beckett said: “The prize draw is our small way of recognising the selfless contribution carers make.”
