Adept Care Homes based in Hinckley Leicestershire has been handed the keys to its latest project – a brand new £7.8m care home on Coleman Street in Derby.

Kiwi House has the facilities of a luxury hotel. From whirlpool baths and easy access en-suite wet rooms to ‘Flicks’ cinema and a pub called the ‘Horse and Hound’, this new care home promises its residents everything possible to ensure they can enjoy an active social life.

Kiwi House offers an environment where residents have their own personal space yet still feel secure and cared for by an intimate team of caring professionals. The Adept team is passionate about ensuring residents can live enriched and fulfilled lives

Residents will live in one of six suites, occupied by up to 13 people. Each suite has its own lounge, dining room and lifestyle kitchen, where residents can get involved in setting up for meal times or make their own tea, coffee and snacks. Outside there are carefully landscaped gardens which over look Kiwi park.  Keen gardeners are encouraged to help to maintain the gardens, or residents can simply wander around and enjoy the tranquility and parkland views.

The total value of the home is now £7.8m of which Adept Care Homes secured a £4.65 million loan from the Royal Bank of Scotland. Building works commenced in April and completed on time and within budget in July 2016.

Dave Lock, Managing Director of Adept Care Homes said, “I believe we have built a care home that will transform the perceptions people have of what to expect from life in a care home. We are delighted with the finished care home and feedback from the first residents to live here has been really positive as they see the same team members every day and receive intimate personal care and attention.”

Kiwi House will be officially opened in September by Angela Rippon.
