Local authority will spend £220,00 on home upgrade

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

A £220,000 refurbishment of Walton House, a 44-bed residential home in Chingford, Essex, is to take place as part of Waltham Forest Council’s Joint Investment Plans for Older People 2000/2001. The refurbishment will see five new bedrooms, a new residents’ lounge with its own tea bay, plus a new bathroom, toilets and storage space. The nine existing bathrooms on the second floor are to be refurbished to bring them up to current access standards and staff facilities will be improved by the creation of a new rest room. The improvements are due to start in the autumn and be completed by January 2001. Of the 31 residential care homes in the London Borough of Waltham Forest the council manages four, 24 are privately run and three are in the voluntary sector.
