A new state-of-the-art care home in Sandbach, Cheshire, is getting set to open its doors for the first time in June after the original launch earlier this year was sadly delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Elworth Grange will be welcoming new residents from next week and will provide a safe and luxurious home for up to 66 residents and will employ over 50 local people once fully staffed.
Care provider, Ideal Carehomes’ latest development has benefitted from a £10 million investment, giving Elworth Grange all the finishing touches you would expect from a luxurious new home. The spacious en-suite bedrooms and latest care technology will allow the Elworth staff team to deliver person-centred care in a dignified manner, promoting independence as far as possible.
The well-appointed care home boasts large, open plan social areas designed with residents in mind. The vintage tearoom will provide plenty of space to host coffee mornings and afternoon tea and residents will be able to enjoy a touch of Hollywood in the plush cinema room featuring its very own popcorn machine. The on-site beauty parlour will be ready for residents to receive regular treatments such as haircuts, chiropody appointments, manicures and much more once this can safely be resumed.
Elworth Grange’s pièce de résistance is the lavish Sky Bar which features panoramic views from the top floor and will become the go-to place for special occasions and celebrations. Spacious landscaped gardens will flourish with the help of green fingered residents attending regular gardening clubs in the relaxing botanical rooms.
Christina Durnan, Regional Director for the North West, said: ‘I am extremely excited to finally be in our beautiful home. Our future residents will benefit so much from our facilities and the full and varied activities programme organised by our dedicated lifestyle manager. I am so proud to work with such a wonderful staff team and we can’t wait to welcome and support our first residents to live life to the full!’.
Stacey Linn, Director at Ideal Carehomes, said ‘The care and attention to detail is clear throughout the home - all our care homes are built with the facilities required to offer quality of life and independence to our residents. It will certainly bring different challenges opening a home at this time, but I have every confidence in Christina and her dedicated staff team’.
Christina continued, ‘Everything at Elworth Grange puts us at the forefront of care and with the established Ideal Carehomes team and policies behind us too, we have all we need to ensure the continued wellbeing of our residents and staff. The brand new build allows us to be completely on top of infection control from the very start and the large social spaces give us the means to social distance with ease.
We are absolutely ready to help people in the local community with both short term and permanent placements and I am always here to answer any questions and help to put people’s mind at rest.’
