A Market Harborough care home, Oxendon House, in Great Oxendon is celebrating the completion and registration of their 16 bedroom extension, which is now ready for residents to move into!
The new extension has created 16 fantastic spacious bedrooms, all with wet rooms, most with patio doors leading out onto the garden. These new bedrooms being just part of a significant £1 million refurbishment of Oxendon House, which also sees existing smaller bedrooms, made into larger bedrooms, the addition of further communal space to the home, and improved laundry facilities. It also will create a small café area for the residents and visitors to meet and enjoy.
It also brings a further much needed 10 jobs to the local area, with the home recruiting additional carers, senior carers and ancillary staff to maintain its high staff to resident ratios.
Cat Bass, who is the Registered Manager, of the home rated as Good with CQC said “It’s so nice to finally see all the new bedrooms completed in the extension, and it has given us a taster of what the rest of the home will look like in the coming weeks. We have already had a number of enquires and are looking forward to people coming to look around”.
Jules Howard, who is the home’s Activities Coordinator said ‘’I am shocked at how beautiful it all is, I feel so proud to be part of the team here having seen the extension through from start to finish. I always judge a home on whether I would like my mum to live in it, and I can proudly say I would at Oxendon House!”.
Martyn Heginbotham, Care and Operations Director, for Jasmine Healthcare which owns Oxendon House said “We are committed to investing in all our homes, to ensure that the residents within our care, receive the best possible care and that live in homely comfortable environments. We have a number of projects like this one ongoing and planned across the group”
