Caring Homes Group has officially opened its award winning Riverside Place care home in Ware, Hertfordshire.
TV and radio presenter Gloria Hunniford did the honours at the opening ceremony on Wednesday, 15 May.
Founding Director Helena Jeffery (pictured left with Gloria) said: “Gloria was very impressed with the modern facilities and high quality of the home including its cinema room, orangery and gardens. It was an absolute pleasure to have her visit us and we look forward to welcoming her back to celebrate many more homes with us again in the future.”
Luxury facilities at the home, which was a winner of a Pinders Design Award in March, include a cinema, hairdressers, private dining rooms, a bistro and Orangery. Communal areas include places to sit peacefully and reminisce and an activities room where residents can assist in the preparation of meals and explore their creative side.
Home Manager of Riverside Place, Katie Wilkinson, said: “Gloria spent a lot of time talking to our residents and guests and was really interested in finding out more about the high-quality care that the home provides. In particular, we shared the ways in which we maintain links with the community in order to enhance and maintain residents and community members interests, hobbies and love for life, providing community activities, awareness events and meeting spaces.”
