A Shaw healthcare service in Nailsea, North Somerset has unveiled an additional nursing wing and new name.
The new nursing wing at Sycamore Lodge, formerly known as The Granary, was officially opened following a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Richard Delmas from the Parish Council, Alun Thomas, Chairman for Shaw healthcare and Contract Compliance Manager, Shayne Gillard from North Somerset council.
Suzanne Hughes, Deputy CEO, for Shaw healthcare, said: “It became apparent from conversations with North Somerset County Council that additional nursing beds would be very much welcomed and we are thrilled to be able to provide this much needed service in the area.”
Sycamore Lodge can accommodate up to 78 elderly residents, including those living with dementia. It provides nursing and residential care, which is tailored to the needs of each resident.
The home was rated Good by the CQC following an inspection by the CQC in March.
Commenting on the CQC rating, Caroline Carter, home manager, said: “We’ve worked tirelessly to make improvements and the whole team are absolutely delighted to have achieved the Good CQC rating.
“We’ve got a great relationship with our residents and their loved ones, and we’re always looking to improve community links, so if anyone would like to pop in and see the type of care we provide they are welcome to visit. Ultimately, we want to deliver the quality of care that we would want for our own loved ones. We’re always looking to improve and I’m sure that you’ll hear more good news from us soon.”
