Ideal Care Homes opens Brackenfield Hall

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

Ideal Care Homes has opened Brackenfield Hall, in Frecheville, Sheffield.

The facility provides 60 beds – 30 for those requiring dementia care and 30 for residential care.

A couple from Gleadless – Olive and Wilfred Mansfield – were the first residents of Brackenfield Hall. Olive, 88 and Wilfred, 90 who are both living with dementia, recently took the decision to live in Brackenfield Hall’s more structured caring environment after seeing the specialised facilities the home has to offer.

Ideal Care Homes chairman Lawrence Tomlinson said Brackenfield Hall, which includes fully landscaped sensory gardens, a courtyard and a hairdressing salon, was the first Ideal Care Home to be in operation and was built by Ideal Care Home’s sister company LNT Construction, both part of the Leeds-based LNT Group.
