The Court Group plans to extend the the Windward Court Retirement Hotel from 14 to 42 beds. NatWest arranged substantial funding. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, the Windward Court Retirement Hotel is a recent acquisition of the local family run Court Group of care homes. Established in 1982 by Jill Wakeham, the Court Group has 12 retirement hotels across Torbay, Teinbridge and the South Hams district of Devon. Phase one of the development was completed in June, phase two will provide new facilities to include further bedrooms as well as a passenger lift, fully modernised kitchen, dining room and second lounge, scheduled for completion in May 2007. Windward Court employs a qualified nutritionist and specialises in residents’ nutritional balance and minimising the use of drugs. Windward Court co-director Brigitte Harvey said that on completion of the development, Windward Court would be able to offer advanced bookings for respite care, a service for which there was a fast growing local demand
