A new state-of-the-art care home in Bicester is getting set to open its doors for the first time in the next couple of weeks. Launton Grange will be welcoming new residents from late September and will provide a safe and luxurious home for up to 66 older people, employing over 50 team members once fully staffed.
Care provider, Ideal Carehomes’ latest development has benefitted from a £10 million investment, giving Launton 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 Launton Grange 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 and ultra-wide corridors which lend themselves well to current guidelines and is designed with residents in mind. Residents will enjoy all the luxury facilities on offer at Launton Grange including a plush cinema room featuring its very own popcorn machine. The handy convenience store located on the first floor enables residents to shop for essentials without leaving their doorstep.
Launton Grange’s 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. The spacious landscaped gardens will become social hubs and continue to flourish with the help of green-fingered residents attending regular gardening clubs in the relaxing botanical rooms.
The newly appointed staff team will complete a thorough induction period prior to the home opening and be given access to industry-leading training and development via Ideal Carehomes newly launched ‘Ideal Academy’. The Launton Grange team have all the tools required to maintain the highest levels of infection control and the Ideal Carehomes ‘Fresh Living’ initiative makes sure that the importance of this is always in mind.
Home Manager, Anne Measures, 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 activities co-ordinators. 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 Anne and her dedicated staff team’.
Anne continued, ‘Everything we do at Launton 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.’
Anne and her team will be hosting exclusive preview days on the 1st and 3rd of October, which will provide an opportunity to explore the first-class facilities by appointment only and learn more about the Launton Grange lifestyle, as well as chance to ask the team any questions about Ideal Carehomes and their unique Fresh Living initiative.
Anne is able to offer personalised virtual tours of the home and there will be an opportunity for prospective residents to book appointments at various preview days.
