Luxurycare has announced a £200,000 refurbishment of one of its five care homes in Bournemouth and Poole.
Following its upgrade, the Birds Hill nursing home, which has been renamed Eagles Mount, will offer high-end residential care with some provision for those with low-level dementia. The service previously offered a mix of nursing and dementia care.
The new direction for the home, which is currently rated Requires Improvement, will also see the appointment of manager, Alicja Wysocka, at the end of October.
Mandy Kittlety, Managing Director of the Luxurycare Group, said: “While our other homes have always had a clear focus, be it the provision of dementia care, or caring for residents with physical disabilities, that hasn’t been the case for this unit. This new direction provides a much-needed service for the community and that specific focus for the home; it’s the perfect fit.”
The home’s refurbishment includes new en-suite bathrooms in all the rooms to allow residents total independence and a full redecoration of communal areas, including new carpets and new furniture.
Alicja, who is relocating from Redhill in Surrey where she is employed as a senior social worker, said: “The changes being made are very exciting. We are going to have everything we need to do a great job and provide the best quality of life possible for residents, according to what that means for them. My heart is already there – I can’t wait to start!”
Two of Luxurycare’s other four services are rated Outstanding (Branksome Park Care Centre and Aranlaw House) with the other two (Regency Manor and Seabourne House) rated Good.
