The New Deanery in Bocking is housed in a historic Grade II listed building, which has been sensitively refurbished to create bright and spacious facilities suitable for residents and their visitors.
Re-rendering of the impressive exterior has also ensured the historic home is protected for many years to come.
In addition to an extensive refurbishment of 23 new en-suite bedrooms, the home has relocated and refitted its on-site hairdressing and beauty salon and created a new café and bar. The work included dropping floor levels to create accessible wet rooms and investing in new furnishings.
Julia Clinton, Chief Executive of Sonnet Care Homes, said: “We have breathed new life into part of the building, and it has allowed us to re-open 23 rooms which have been designed to meet future needs.
“Our new Carrington café provides a lovely new meeting place. Our residents are thrilled and absolutely love the changes, and we will now be employing up to 20 more staff to cater for a larger number of residents.”
