With the aim of connecting care homes with their local communities the open week allowed the home to open its doors once again after a challenging couple of years where visiting has been restricted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr Torrance, MSP for Kirkcaldy, said: “It was great to be invited along to Chapel Level Care Home to take part in Care Home Open Week’s Summer Celebrations.

“Staff and residents hosted an amazing 60s themed party which included music, food, and games for everyone to enjoy and take part in.

Care homes have had a particularly tough couple of years due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, so it was great to see Chapel Level’s doors open again to visitors from the community.”

Mr Torrance, who attended the event alongside Cllr Carol Lindsay, went on to commend the staff at the home who have worked through the worst of the pandemic.

“Without hard-working, dedicated care home staff, some of the most vulnerable people in the community would suffer greatly,” he said.“These hardworking individuals go above and beyond to ensure that the older generation, some with very specific care needs, are treated with respect and dignity.”
