WCS Care has opened its £10m state-of-the-art Castle Brook care home in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

Providing specialist care for 84 older people, Castle Brook, which has been funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland, has been designed in households of 14 people to promote a sense of community and well-being.

Christine Asbury, chief executive of WCS Care, said: “We’re delighted with Castle Brook and the positive impact this has already had for residents and their families.

“Royal Bank of Scotland have been avid supporters over the years and we are proud that they have worked alongside us to create state of the art facilities in Kenilworth and continue to support us moving forward.

“We’re always looking for new ways to ensure that every day is well lived for residents, so we’re excited about our future plans – including our new state-of-the-art care home in Warwick – and how Royal Bank of Scotland will play an important part in our growth.”

Castle Brook includes a mix of private fee payers and the relocation of 34 residents from their Woodside home in Warwick, which is set to be replaced by a new home for 72 older people and people living with dementia.

Work on the new home is expected to start in June 2017, subject to planning permission, and the project has received £5.9m in finance facilities from Royal Bank of Scotland.

Facilities at Castle Brook include a café, relaxing spa, deluxe cinema, pamper salon and a shop, along with the latest innovative nurse call and acoustic technology to help maintain dignity and independence for people living with dementia.

Castle Brook is one of the first care homes in Warwickshire to have double apartments for couples or relatives wanting to stay together. It has a community feel inside and outdoors, where keeping active is encouraged through secure, private gardens and a side-by-side bike for two.

Kenny Nelson, relationship director from the Specialised Healthcare team at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be associated with this high-end standard of care that WCS continually strive to provide. We look forward to continuing their success story as we support the rebuild for its older care home in Warwick that will bring an increase in care available to people living in the Midlands.”
