Barchester Healthcare’s The Spires care home in Lichfield, Staffordshire has been officially opened.
Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Staffordshire, Ian Dudson, and the Mayor of Lichfield, Councillor David Leytham, unveiled a plaque to mark the home’s opening during a ceremony attended by care home staff and guests.
Fran Sharp, General Manager at The Spires, said: “We are all very excited about the opening of The Spires and the residents and our newly appointed team have really enjoyed meeting new residents and their families, as well as the Lord Lieutenant and The Mayor.
“At Barchester, residents are at the core of everything we do, and at The Spires we will be providing support for older people living independent lives with dignity and respect. Barchester brings 25 years’ experience in expert care to Lichfield, which means residents and their relatives can feel safe in the knowledge that they are in trusted hands.”
Named after the three spires on Lichfield’s famous Cathedral, The Spires will provide personalised residential and dementia care for 70 people within the Staffordshire community.
Mr Dudson said: “We are delighted and honoured that Barchester have created a new home to take care of our loved ones with the best quality care available. Moving into a care home is one of the bigger decisions we make in our lives so it’s a wonderful thing to have The Spires in Lichfield, it already feels like a home-away-from-home.”
