Country Court Care has celebrated the completion of the first phase of an ongoing £1m investment and refurbishment plan.
Burnham Nursing & Care Home in Somerset held an Open Day to mark its milestone on January 20.
Councillor Michael Clarke, Mayor of Burnham-on-Sea, joined home manager, Ken Bishop, and Country Court Care managing director Alykhan Kachra to host the event.
Ken said: “We were delighted with the Open Day. My team and I were happy to show over sixty visitors the many positive changes at our home”.
The luxury refurbishment of the second floor, known as ‘The Rookery’ was shown off to the public, families, local dignitaries and health care professionals. The residential floor features 17 luxury bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, new lounge and new dining area.
The refurbishment is part of a rolling upgrade programme at the home that will eventually see a new roof, refurbishment of all floors and upgrade to the outside areas.
Previously a school and home for retired nuns, the building was converted to a care home in 1990 by previous owners.
Country Court Care recently opened a home in Northwich as part of a £40m, eight property scheme funded by Cheyne Capital (see Former Chancellor opens Country Court Care home).
