Care South, a leading provider of Residential and Home Care Services with headuarters in Poole, recently celebrated 25 years of care with a special event held at its newest development, St Ives Country House Care. This development which is due to open in early 2017 includes St Ives House, a 60 bed home providing Residential, Nursing and Dementia care for older people. St Ives Place adjacent, offers 14 apartments specifically designed for those living independently with care and support available as required and 4 cottages named Thyme, Rosemary, Juniper and Lavender all in a charming sylvan setting at St Ives near Ringwood.
Chairman, Felicity Irwin DL, and the Board welcomed Care South’s guests including its former Chairman and past Lord Lieutenant of Dorset, Michael Fulford-Dobson and many of those who had contributed to the Charity over 25 years. Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset, Angus Campbell, and the High Sheriff of Dorset, Sir Philip Williams Bt were also present in support of the milestone celebration.
Felicity Irwin addressed guests celebrating all that Care South has achieved over the past 25 years
“Much has been achieved over the last 25 years and there has been a lot of change. However, throughout all this time the one thing that has not changed is Care South’s primary objective to provide high quality care to residents and service users. We would like to acknowledge the success of Care South and the belief that the growth and development of this organisation is paramount to meeting the needs of those in our care.
“We are optimistic about the future which is reflected by what you have seen here in our lovely new St Ives House care home with Independent living nearby. Today we celebrate our belief, teamwork, ethos and values which are at the core of Care South and which are the bedrock of our reputation. We would like to thank everyone for their invaluable contribution over the years to help us achieve what we are today – we all have much to be proud of.”
