The luxury care home welcomed Mayor of Surrey Heath, Councillor Valerie White, residents, and community and health care professionals, to a celebration featuring sparkling prosecco and a range of delicious sandwiches and nibbles.
Guests were also treated to a bagpipe performance by students from Gordon’s School, and the soothing sounds of a live pianist.
A ribbon was cut by two of the home’s current residents, who also sliced a mouth-watering cake for guests to enjoy.
The care home has already welcomed seven residents, with a further 11 scheduled to move in soon, while the home has a full team of dedicated, compassionate carers and nurses.
