Bringing 20 jobs to St Peter’s Park, the refurbishment programme includes conversion work for specialist accommodation and facilities for those living with dementia, which is now open and has welcomed its first residents.
The investment also includes ongoing general refurbishment and improvements with a new, efficient heating system throughout the village, plus landscaping and refinements to St Peter’s three acres of gardens.
With 18 new bedrooms and the opportunity to cater healthcare specifically to dementia needs, the new residence combines accessibility, safety and comfort with high quality care by the skilled St Peter’s team.
Each room features an en-suite wetroom, stylish furniture and a homely space to enjoy visits or privacy, with scenic views of the gardens as well as new communal spaces – including a beautiful dining room and welcoming lounge.
Registered Manager Lisa Turner said:
We’re always working to excel in our dementia care, and with the opening of our new accommodation, 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.
The improvements represent significant investment and confidence in the future of St Peter’s Park by family-run Agincare, a leading, independent provider of care nationwide.
