Home / News / A new dementia wing opens at St Peter’s Park!
The team at St Peter’s Park, our Bexhill care home and retirement village, marked the opening of a specialist dementia wing with the arrival of its first residents, two of whom are pictured here enjoying a celebratory lunch!
With 18 new bedrooms and the opportunity to cater healthcare specifically to dementia needs, this wing is an exciting new residence combining security and comfort with high quality care.
The new wing’s features
Built for purpose, the dementia wing will be a comfortable home for residents who can enjoy the brand new bedrooms with safe, accessible features integrated elegantly into their surroundings.
Each features an en-suite wetroom, stylish furniture and a homely space to enjoy visits or privacy. All of this is underpinned by benefitting from the skilled care of our team. There are scenic views of the well-tended grounds, and new communal spaces – including a beautiful dining room and welcoming lounge.
Moving in and moving up
This opening also represents a new stage of career development for the care assistants of St Peter’s Park, who may now specialise in dementia training and hone their care for the incoming residents.
Many of the team at St Peter’s Park have progressed in their careers with us, starting in one role and training to eventually take on new responsibilities. We offer mobility and rewards for those whose hearts are in care, and it is with great pride that we appoint team members to the new wing, who have risen through the ranks over the years.
“We’re always working to excel in our dementia care, and with the opening of our new wing we’re proud to continue doing that. The specialised team here are looking forward to being able to cater to each new resident with state of the art care and facilities.”
– Registered Manager Lisa Turner
