Residents at Bupa’s Claremont Care Home in Whitletts, Ayr, are enjoying a bright new home thanks to a £500,000 refurbishment programme.
The home at High Thorneyflat Wynd has been redecorated throughout as part of Bupa’s multi-millon-pound commitment to providing even better services for older people.
All bedrooms have been fully redecorated and the majority fitted out with new furniture. The redevelopment has also seen the creation of 32 ‘premium’ rooms offering larger rooms or garden views.
Elsewhere, brand new furnishings and flooring have been installed in the corridors, shared lounge and dining areas plus a number of bathrooms have been equipped with specialist baths.
Claremont Care Home – which is made up of four separate units – is equipped to look after people with nursing care requirements and also offers dementia and respite care, alongside providing support for residents diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
The care home has also introduced dementia friendly destination points, to help residents living with dementia feel more at home.
Destination points include a library, old fashioned kitchen, farm theme, country and western theme and old fashioned bar.
And, in keeping with Bupa’s commitment to providing high-quality personal care, qualified nurses are available 24-hours-a-day.
The new look was officially unveiled by the Provost of South Ayrshire, Councillor Helen Moonie. She joined residents, families and local people at a ceremony on February 5 to mark the completion of the work.
Carol Barr, Home Manager at Claremont Care Home, said:
“We have a great team here and we’re all really pleased to be able to offer even better facilties and a smart new look for our residents.
“We’re grateful to Councillor Moonie for helping us to mark the big day – and we are grateful to families, friends and local people for attending the celebration.+
