Luxury New Care Home Opens in Melbourn
Melbourn Springs, Barchester Healthcare’s luxury new care home in Melbourn, has officially opened, and staff raised a glass to celebrate.
Preparations are already under way to welcome the first 10 residents, with Melbourn Springs playing a key role in supporting the health care needs of the region at this time. Staff are trained to deliver a premium caring experience, offering personalised residential, dementia, and respite care, in a beautiful and comfortable setting.
The home is finished with contemporary decoration and state of the art facilities. It features a café, cinema, spa bathrooms, a choice of lounges and dining rooms, with garden access or terraces, Wi-Fi throughout, and an in-house hair and beauty salon. Bedrooms come fitted with smart TVs, and en-suite bathrooms as standard, and ground floor rooms have direct access to our landscaped gardens. The home also has 338 solar panels, making it one of the greenest energy efficient buildings in the local area.
In light of the current situation, whilst Barchester homes are temporarily closed to visitors to keep staff and residents safe, our varied life enrichment programme includes ways for our residents to stay in contact with relatives digitally, such as Skype calls.
We aim to offer independence, dignity and choice in every aspect of daily life. Residents can enjoy a varied daily menu of nutritious home-cooked meals, and freshly baked cakes and goods from the café. The home is also complete with dedicated facilities for those living with dementia. These include a life-skills kitchen, to help maintain activities of daily living, and a “Magic Table”, an interactive, multi-sensory projector, which increases physical and social interaction, as well as, most importantly, allowing residents to have a bit of fun.
We are playing our part in the wider care sector and supporting the NHS where possible. The expert team at Melbourn Springs Care Home is here to support you and your loved ones – call us anytime for friendly advice, to discuss care options and the services available, or to arrange a tour of the home by video call.
We are currently still taking admissions into our care home for those that need care in the next 4 weeks, so please give us a call on 01763 722732 or to find out more visit barchester.com/MelbournSprings
