Care Home Buries Time Capsule to Mark 25th Anniversary

Henley Manor Care Home in Mill Lane has buried a time capsule to mark its organisation’s 25th anniversary.

Henley Manor Care Home which is owned by care provider Hallmark Care Homes which was established in 1997 and has since cared for over 10,000 residents buried the time capsule for future generations to dig up on Friday.

During the celebratory event, residents and team members at the residential, nursing and dementia home buried the time capsule which included pictures of residents and team, newspaper clippings, photos of recent events and feedback from residents and relatives in line with the businesses value of Togetherness.

As part of the special event, residents also enjoyed a celebratory breakfast and a 10-minute mediation session in the home’s cinema.

They were joined for the occasion by Hallmark Care Homes’ Chairman Avnish Goyal and Managing Director Aneurin Brown who thanked the team and made an 800-mile trip to visit all of the company’s 22 care homes this week.

General Manager at Henley Manor Care Home, Ellie Faramarzian said: “It was lovely to mark our 25th anniversary as a business and see everyone joining in with something that explains the world as we see it right now. A special plaque was installed to mark the point where the time capsule is buried and we hope in 25 years when it is dug up, future generations can discover and learn from it.”

Chair of Hallmark Care Homes, Avnish Goyal added: “I am so thankful and proud of the teams for everything they have achieved. The road trip was a great opportunity to unite and acknowledge our caring and committed team who go above and beyond daily to ensure that residents have an amazing quality of life.”
