A Worcester care home has seen the start of a six-figure refurbishment programme which is set to help transform the lives of its residents.
The first phase of a major £100,000 project at Northwick Grange Care Home has been completed and will eventually see a whole redesign of the care home’s bedrooms and an overhaul of its bathrooms – adding new en-suite facilities, wet-rooms and improved disabled access for residents.
The redesign of the Old Northwick Lane home’s bedrooms will also give improved light and living space.
The refurbishment at the independently-run home is being carried out in two stages with the final phase of the overhaul set to begin early in the New Year.
Kelly Gatfield, Manager of Northwick Grange, said: “We are thrilled that the refurbishment programme is now well underway.
“It’s a major investment but when completed early next year many of our rooms will be equipped with modern, first-class facilities. That will really help our residents to live and relax in comfort.
“Many of our residents are in the early stages of dementia, but our new-look bedrooms and bathrooms will enable them to live more independently, which will in turn give their families peace of mind that their every need is being taken care of.”
The refurbishment is the latest in a line of good news for the Worcester care home which specialises in caring for residents with dementia.
In February it was awarded the prestigious Worcestershire Dementia Standard for the second year running by Worcestershire County Council.
Northwick Grange Care Home is part of the privately-owned Clarendon Care Group which is based in Worcestershire.
It is registered with the Care Quality Commission for 30 residents
