Manju Kuruppuarachchi, who works for Aspire Life Care, said: “The event was well attended by the families and friends of the Westdene House residents and all enjoyed high tea, connecting with the community and celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s 92nd birthday.”

Also attending the open day were West Sussex county council officials.

Mahendra Kuruppuarachchi, director of Aspire Life Care, said: “It’s a joy to see so much support and well-wishers attending this years event, especially at a time where adult care is a priority requirement in our society.

“We must recognise the work done by the diligent health care workers on a day like this.”
