Salford-based Beech House Residential Care Home is undergoing a major refurbishment as part of Akari Care’s £12 million investment programme in its homes throughout the UK.
As part of the extensive refurbishment work, the old caretaker’s flat will be converted to create an additional six bedrooms and a bathroom to enable the home to provide specialist care to more people.
All communal areas, bedrooms and bathrooms will be decorated, with an upgrade to lighting and new furniture, carpets and curtains will be installed throughout to make the areas more comfortable and appealing for residents and visitors.
To give the home’s exterior a fresh new look, all the outside windows will be upgraded.
Beech House is also celebrating after being cited in national carehome.co.uk’s top 20 awards, which is the TripAdvisor for care homes.
Located on Radcliffe Park Crescent, Beech House provides residential care for up to 33 elderly residents and, after the refurbishment, will be able to accommodate 36 residents.
Lynn Anderson, Manager at Beech House Residential Care Home, said: “Quality is at the heart of everything we do and that includes the environment of our home, which we like to keep as fresh and comfortable for our residents as possible.
“Everything is geared towards achieving positive outcomes for the people who live in our homes and every effort has been made to ensure that our residents cope well with the refurbishment work.
“In addition to the redecoration work taking place, the expansion at our home will mean that we are able to provide high-quality specialist care to even more people.
“We’re extremely proud at being recognised in a national top 20 awards scheme and we’re looking forward to seeing the finished home soon, which will contribute to the excellent specialist care we offer.”
