Banstead Manor, a 77-bed residential, dementia and nursing home on Brighton Road, welcomed over 100 people through its doors on Thursday to celebrate the momentous occasion.
As part of the £8m care homes’ special event, guests were invited to take a tour of the homes’ luxurious facilities, which includes; a cinema, hairdressers, therapy room and café.
At the home, each bedroom is elegantly furnished, has an en-suite bathroom and those on the ground floor have access to their own patio.
Other communal areas include; an interactive kitchen where residents can assist in the preparation of meals and landscaped gardens designed by the late, award-winning landscape architect David Fountain.
The afternoon event, which was attended by local businesses and care professionals alike, included a performance from a harpist and three-piece band and was culminated by speeches and a buffet lunch.
