The home has recently undergone a major refurbishment and redecoration as part of Akari Care’s £12 million investment programme in its homes throughout the UK.
Senior Management and VIP guests attended the official launch and were given a tour around the premises and chatted with both staff and residents. There was also refreshments and a buffet lunch for everyone to enjoy.
The work that has been completed includes a re-decoration both internally and externally to improve the environment for residents and visitors.
Communal areas and some of the residents’ personal spaces have been re-decorated to make the surroundings more relaxing and appealing, with all lighting upgraded, new carpets fitted and furniture, curtains and soft furnishings replaced.
In addition, two bathrooms have been fitted with fresh new suites to make bathing more comfortable for residents.
Tracey Warnes, manager of Felmingham Old Rectory, said: “We are committed to delivering the best quality care and strive to make our residents’ lives as comfortable as possible. The redecoration and refurbishment, together with the addition of two bathrooms, have made the surroundings even more relaxing and appealing for both residents and visitors and will further enhance their experience at the home.
“We are extremely proud of our new-look home and it’s fantastic to see residents settling into their new surroundings. We’ve had lots of positive comments and compliments from residents and their families and friends about the refurbishment.”
Donna Lyons, Operations Director at Akari Care, said: “We are constantly striving to offer the best for our residents, not only in the quality of care, but also in the environment in which they live.
“Felmingham Old Rectory looks fantastic and it’s great that so many of our homes throughout the UK are having their facilities enhanced.”
Located on Aylsham Road, Felmingham Old Rectory provides residential care for up to 36 elderly residents.
