After months of hard work and dedication, we’re delighted to announce that the extension of our dementia care home in Surrey is finally complete!
We’re thrilled to now be able to provide 11 extra bedrooms for new residents, as well as offering enhanced living space that includes three new living areas purpose-built for our residents’ needs.
We’re now in a position to welcome a dozen new residents, with four rooms already reserved. Alongside the new bedrooms, three additional communal areas have also been added as part of the renovation work, while the incorporation of a new wheelchair friendly road now allows for better access to more areas of our estate - including our animal grazing fields, lake and parts of the woodland.
The extension has been fully signed off by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is now officially certified as meeting the requisite standards.
Charlie, our director, said: “Actually being in the extension to Langham Court is incredible. It’s been a concept for years, so to be able to physically enter is wonderful. It’s turned out so much better than I’d ever hoped. It offers calmness and a great sense of wellbeing, with views of the South Downs and the sheep grazing on the estate providing a real feeling of peacefulness and contentment. It’s surpassed everything we could’ve hoped for and we’re delighted with the outcome.”
Charlie continued: “One thing we always encourage our residents to do is to bring lots of personal possessions with them to make the space feel more homely. This isn’t limited to the bedrooms; we encourage this personalisation to spill out to our hallways and day rooms too. Langham Court is an accredited Butterfly home, which means it follows a model of care that focuses on the individual, valuing their emotional intelligence and delivering relationship-based care. Creating a space with personality enthused décor plays a large part in capturing the essence of the Butterfly model, which sits at the heart of what we do.”
At our dementia care home in Surrey, we’d be delighted to welcome you through our doors. If you’d like to find out more about our extension, or you’d like to enquire about our care, don’t hesitate to contact a member of our team.
