Barchester opens home in Suffolk

Posted on November 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Barchester Healthcare opened its newest purpose-built care home in December. Oulton Park, a 60-bed care home near Oulton Broad on the outskirts of Lowestoft took shape right on schedule, with its design and development purposely defined to serve the needs of the surrounding Suffolk communities. The home opens its doors in January to frail elderly residents, residents with dementia illnesses and younger less able adults. This single storey home has all bedrooms ensuite, with a variety of dining and living areas, and each of its three wings provides a slightly different environment for the varying needs of residents. The enclosed courtyard, atrium, secure gardens, areas designated for activities and hairdressing salon are also designed to help to make Oulton Park a very pleasing place to live. The official topping out ceremony was held in November.
