Thorn Springs care home, just off Thorn Road, will be providing a safe and welcoming home for up to 66 older people whilst employing over 65 team members once fully staffed.
The Thorn Springs development has benefitted from a £12 million investment, with all the finishing touches you would expect from a deluxe care home. The spacious en-suite bedrooms and latest care technology will allow the care team to deliver person-centred care in a dignified manner, promoting independence as far as possible.
The well-appointed care home boasts bright, open plan social areas and ultra-wide corridors which are designed with residents in mind. Residents can enjoy a variety of unique facilities at Thorn Springs, including a lavish Sky Bar with far-reaching views, a vintage tearoom complete with balcony and a plush cinema room with its very own popcorn machine.
The newly appointed care team will complete a thorough and extensive induction period prior to the home opening. They will be given access to industry-leading training and development via the ‘Ideal Academy’, which seeks to equip all team members with the tools and knowledge they need to provide person-centred, high-quality care.
Commissioning Director at Ideal Carehomes, Maria Taylor, said: ‘We are extremely excited to soon be able to open the doors of our beautiful new home to the Houghton Regis community. 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 a heart-warming response so far from local people, for both the first phase of recruitment and from prospective residents. We can’t wait to support our new residents to live their lives to the fullest as part of the Thorn Springs family!’.
Stacey Linn, Managing Director at Ideal Carehomes, said ‘The care and attention to detail is clear throughout our new home – all of our care homes are built with the facilities required to offer quality of life and independence to our residents. I’m confident that Thorn Springs will be a wonderful addition to the local community of Houghton Regis.’
Maria continued, ‘Everything we do at Thorn Springs will put us at the forefront of care and with the established Ideal Carehomes team behind us, we have all we need to ensure the safety and 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 we will always be here to answer any questions and help to put people’s mind at rest.’
Maria and the team will be hosting an exclusive preview day on Saturday 8th October, which will provide an opportunity for local people to explore the first-class facilities and learn more about the Thorn Springs lifestyle. It will also give them the chance to ask the team any questions about Ideal Carehomes and their unique initiatives. The open day is from 11am to 3pm – there is no need to book and guests will receive complimentary refreshments and a gift bag.
