A new state-of-the-art care home in Cannock is getting set to open its doors for the first time in the next couple of weeks. Littleton Lodge will be welcoming new residents from April 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 Littleton Lodge all the finishing touches you would expect from a luxurious new home. The spacious en-suite bedrooms and latest care technology will allow the Littleton Lodge care 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 are designed with residents in mind. Residents can enjoy all the luxury facilities on offer at Littleton Lodge including a luxurious Sky Bar with far-reaching views, a vintage tearoom complete with balcony area and a plush cinema room featuring its very own popcorn machine.
Littleton Lodge’s on-site beauty parlour will be ready for residents to receive regular treatments such as haircuts, chiropody appointments, manicures and much more. 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 are set to complete a thorough induction period prior to the home opening and will be given access to industry-leading training and development via the ‘Ideal Academy’.
Home Manager, Rachel Ellis, said: ‘I am extremely excited to soon be able to open the doors of our beautiful home. Our future residents will benefit so much from our facilities and the full and varied social programme organised by our activities co-ordinators. We have had such an overwhelming response so far from local people, for both the first phase of recruitment and from prospective residents. I can’t wait to support our new residents to live life to the full as part of the Littleton Lodge community!’.
Stacey Linn, Managing 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 the quality of life and independence to our residents. Littleton Lodge is our 23rd care home and with Rachel at the helm, I have every confidence that our newest home will be a wonderful addition to the Cannock community!’.
Rachel continued, ‘Everything we do at Littleton Lodge will put 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 will be 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.’
Rachel and her team will be hosting an exclusive preview day on the 17th of April (adhering to current government guidelines) which will provide an opportunity for local people to explore the first class facilities and learn more about the Littleton Lodge lifestyle, as well as a chance to ask the team any questions about Ideal Carehomes and their unique initiatives. The open day is from 11am -3pm, there is no need to book and guests will receive complimentary refreshments and a goody bag.
