Wetherby’s newest care home,Windsor Court, welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress of Wetherby for a sneak peek of the brand new facilities last week. The 66 bed home on Sandbeck Way is coming up to completion and the Mayor marked the occasion by laying the last external ground stone on the site.
Councillor Galan Moss and his wife Sandra Moss donned their hard hats and high visibility jackets to take a tour of the building with Home Manager Paula Mountjoy and Site Manager Graham Frost. Councillor Moss was impressed with the spacious social spaces which once the home is finished will become bright and airy garden rooms, luxurious lounges and dining areas and an opulent cinema room.
As they walked around the two storey home which is due to open in January, Paula revealed her plans for residents including clubs, trips, activities and community events. As the tour progressed to the large en suite bedrooms, Graham explained the environmental design features and sustainable aspects of the home such as ground source heat pumps, underfloor heating and LED lighting.
The Mayor said,“This was a visit that I was particularly looking forward to and it didn’t disappoint. I was very impressed with the facilities and the build, but especially the jobs and community benefits that Windsor Court will bring to Wetherby. I was honoured to be asked to be a part of the build and lay the last stone and I look forward to returning to see the home once it is complete.”
Paula who is dedicated to developingWindsor Court as a key part of the local community, said, “We were so pleased to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Wetherby to our new home. This takes us one step closer to completion and we can’t wait to open the doors to the people of Wetherby and beyond. With a luxurious, safe and innovative environment and exciting social calendar for our future residents, Windsor Court is so much more than just a care home and I know local people will be impressed.”
Windsor Court will be operated by Ideal Carehomes and has been designed to embrace social activities and aspirational lifestyle choices for their future residents. The home will offer high quality residential and dementia care to older people who will live at the luxury home on an inclusive fee basis, enjoying the modern facilities without the worry of additional costs. Local people will be able to view Windsor Courtfrom the end of December to meet the staff team, have a look round the home and reserve rooms.
