New Care Home in Berkshire to be Named After His Royal Highness, the Late Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh
RMBI Care Co. has recently completed and opened its new care home in Berkshire, which replaces the former Lord Harris Court, set in the same grounds. The new Home, Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh Court, provides care and support for up to 45 people and offers nursing care and dementia support. The environment has a contemporary feel and includes the latest assistive technologies and design, ensuring a personalised approach to support the residents.
Residents can now enjoy a variety of communal rooms, including café bar, lounges, dining rooms, private dining and hair salon. The spaces have been designed to make maximum use of light, and many rooms have easy access to garden or balconies for residents and their loved ones to enjoy the chancing view of the outdoors.
Abigail Cranston, Home Manager at Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh Court, says:
“The Home has a wonderful, calm, homely feel. The residents are enjoying smaller communal spaces, which enable them to build closer connections. The new bistro area has been extremely popular with residents and relatives, all spending quality time together, enjoying activities and socialising.”
Staff at the CQC ‘Good’ rated Home have been undertaking additional dementia training to help familiarise themselves with the new Home, so they are able to continue the high standards of care for our residents.
John Boyington, CBE, Chairman of Trustees at RMBI Care Co., says:
“This new state-of-the-art home has been our biggest investment in 15 years. As it has been specifically designed to meet the needs of older people looking for either nursing care or residential dementia support, it is a much welcomed addition to our portfolio.”
The naming of the new care home after the late Duke of Edinburgh, himself a Freemason for over 60 years, adds to the charity’s group of Homes with royal names: Queen Elizabeth Court, in Llandudno; Prince George Duke of Kent Court, in Kent; Prince Michael of Kent Court, in Watford; Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court, in Braintree; and Albert Edward Prince of Wales Court, in Porthcawl.
RMBI Care Co. Home is run by RMBI Care Co., part of the Masonic Charitable Foundation. For more information, please visit: http://www.rmbi.org.uk
