Larchwood Care has reopened its Sherford Manor home in Taunton following a £300,000 refurbishment.
Mayor of Taunton Deane Councillor Hazel Prior-Sankey performed the honours at the home’s relaunch.
Katrina Ball, Manager of Sherford Manor, said: “We are delighted to be relaunching Sherford Manor, after the significant investment Larchwood Care has made in improving the home. We wanted to make it a very special occasion, and felt there was no better way than inviting the Mayor to cut the ribbon for us.
“The care of our residents is our highest priority, and it is essential for us to continuously improve our service to ensure the best care possible. The staff have worked incredibly hard, and I am very proud of what they have achieved.”
Cllr Hazel Prior-Sankey said: “It is lovely to be at Sherford Manor today to celebrate a new beginning. Well done to all the staff on this achievement. It has been great to meet so many of the residents enjoying the party.”
Sherford Manor Care Home, which is based on Wyvern Road, is part of Larchwood Care, and provides dementia, residential and day care for up to 105 elderly residents.
