The new building has been designed to complement the existing accommodation, an extended country-style Victorian House. The existing home remained open during the year-long programme; we implemented measures to ensure we minimised disruption in the sensitive and tranquil environment, particularly for residents who may become distressed by noise.
The new facility, designed for residents with specific care needs, including dementia, opened in autumn 2017.
Whilst on site, we assisted the home in numerous ways, including:
- Helping with the home’s annual charity fete, including providing signage, carrying out general repairs, assisting in traffic management and contributing raffle prizes
- Organised a time capsule event with a local primary school
