Ideal Homes hosted the official reopening of its Coppice Lodge care home in Arnold, Nottingham, with the Mayor of Gelding and local Councillor Sandra Barnes cutting the ribbon.
A refurbishment of the 64-bedroom residential and dementia care home included a new café area in the reception, which is designed to serve as the social hub of the home. A pub forms part of a reminiscence room, which is styled as a 1950’s living room.
Councillor Barnes, who toured the home with staff and residents, said: “It is a pleasure to be invited to officially reopen Coppice Lodge. The facilities at the home are second to none and it was great to meet with the people who live there, and are obviously enjoying the active lifestyle that the home provides. I will certainly visit again to sample some more of the delicious cakes from the coffee shop!”
Home manager, Samantha Kavanagh, added: “Coppice Lodge really is a great place to live. The residents are already enjoying using the café area as a lovely place to welcome their family and friends. We also have a brand new activity room, plus a cinema room with popcorn machine. There is so much to do at Coppice Lodge, and along with fantastic trips out, our residents are spoilt for choice. It really is a pleasure to show visitors round our beautiful home.”
