Newly appointed manager, Paul Turvey, has set out his exciting vision for Maria Mallaband Care Group’s (MMCG), £9.5m Lace Hill Manor Care Home under construction in Buckingham.
Paul, 32, recently took the helm at the 62-bed private care home designed for residential, nursing and dementia care that is set to open in February 2022.
“It is going to be an absolutely stunning home designed with superior care at its heart and laden with five-star facilities,” Paul said.
“I am so excited to be able to develop the team and shape the services at Lace Hill, embed our vision for a home that offers those living there not only the very best physical environment, but a place where they can live life to the fullest and celebrate their individuality.
“I’m not afraid of doing things differently and I want to bring in the latest innovative practices and push the boundaries of what the care sector has to offer.”
Formerly a manager at another home within MMCG, Paul brings with him 14 years’ experience in the sector, having started out as a care assistant aged 18 and has worked his way up to managerial positions, including leading a specialist dementia care community, and is passionate about dementia care in particular.
The new home is set to offer up to 31 residential dementia care beds to meet the need identified locally, Paul said: “We are creating a stimulating and interactive environment, and investing in the team too, with the creation of two dementia care leaders to oversee that community. I really want to tackle that stigma around coming into a care home, and create an open culture where people are confident in being able to continue living as the people they are and have always been.”
