Abbeyfield Manager, Lindsey McGibbon, brings us news of the care home's new facilities
After lots of deliberations and planning, to upgrade our last four rooms with 'en suite' facilities, the project has finally come to fruition.
It has always been our philosophy to keep up with residents' requirements and it has become very apparent that we needed to carry out this development to be able succeed in providing the best care in the future.
In April this year we embarked on a project to add four 'en suites' and extend one of our other rooms. We have extended our rooms outwards so we didn't lose any living space within the building and the results speak for themselves. Now we can proudly say that all eleven rooms are en suite.
On Sunday 4th September, residents, relatives, fundraisers, staff and past and present committee members were invited to enjoy a cream tea afternoon to officially launch our new rooms. Bruce Alexander, whose mother-in-law was a resident for almost eleven years, kindly agreed to do the official launch alongside Margaret Aston, Chairman of the Haddenham Abbeyfield Society.
Margaret thanked Building Bespoke for their hard work and for completing the work early, the residents for their patience during the works (that, inevitably, were very noisy on occasions), the staff for working in difficult circumstances and to Ken Perry, a volunteer to the Society for all his input overseeing and constructing the internal fixtures.
We can now increase our occupation back up to eleven residents.
