First peek inside brand new luxury care home in Marston Moretaine

A new state-of-the-art care home in Marston Moretaine is getting set to open its doors for the first time in the next couple of weeks. Blakelands Lodge care home will shortly be welcoming new residents, providing 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 £12 million investment, giving Blakelands Lodge, located on Gee View, all the finishing touches you would expect from a luxurious new home.

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 Blakelands Lodge including a vintage tearoom complete with balcony area and a plush cinema room featuring its very own popcorn machine.

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, Diane Lee, 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 Blakelands 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. With Diane at the helm, I have every confidence that our newest home will be a wonderful addition to the local community.”

Diane continued, “Everything we do at Blakelands 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. 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.”
