Associated facilities included day rooms, lifeskills kitchens, a hairdressing salon, reception area, and extensive landscaped gardens.
The new building was designed to complement the existing accommodation, an extended country-style Victorian House. The existing home remained open during the year-long programme; we implented measures to ensure we minimised disruption in the sensitive and tranquil environment, particularly for residents who may become distressed by noise.
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
- OrganisIing a time capsule event with a local primary school
The new facility, designed for residents with specific care needs, including dementia, opened in autumn 2017.
