He was really interested in meeting some of the residents and finding out how they are doing now and are they being well looked after. He was pleasantly surprised to hear that the husband and wife are both residents at Victoriana Care Home. Cllr Mahmood Hussain had this to say ‘Quite often you will hear stories about husband and wife who can no longer stay together so they have to be moved into different care homes, which I find absolutely heart-breaking. I am glad you accept couples and able to look after them both’
