Karen Allen

I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

Visit to Cheviot Care Home, Horsley Hill

with Beryl Anderson, Manager of Cheviot Court Care Home in Horsley Hill

I recently paid a visit to Cheviot Court Care Home in Horsley Hill Square. Mrs Beryl Anderson, manager of the home, was kind enough to give me a tour of the facilities, which included a replica "Old Smithy Tea Room" and other themed rooms, designed to stimulate residents, which include dementia suffers. There were dozens of activities listed for residents, which included day trips and it was plain to see the raport between staff and residents.

If only all homes were run like Mrs Anderson's Cheviot Court.
