White Horse Lodge builds new facility


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

Swindon-based charity, the White Horse Care Trust, has opened a new nursing home in Wiltshire, specifically for people with learning disabilities. Holly Lodge is located in the village of Pewsey, eight miles south of Marlborough, and provides accommodation for up to 18 adults. The charity says the new building has been constructed to the latest care standards specifications and will provide an excellent and much needed resource for the county as there is only one other such home in Wiltshire. The White Horse Care Trust provides care and accommodation for people with learning disabilities in 13 other homes within the county. The Trust is able to accommodate 73 individuals and the new nursing home is a significant addition to its care capability. Holly Lodge has been built in partnership with the Fosseway Housing Association and the main contractor was Cowlin Construction.
