Athena Care Homes has officially opened its new £1m Milton Lodge community at Ashlynn Grange Care Home.
The year-long project has seen family-run Athena refurbish Milton Lodge to create 42 en suite bedrooms, spacious communal areas, and a café for residents and their guests, all with an Art Deco theme. The newly opened community means that Ashlynn Grange now offers residential, nursing, and dementia care for up to 153 residents.
The ribbon was officially cut by the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress of Peterborough, Nick Sandford and Bella Saltmarsh, on Tuesday 21 March during an open afternoon attended by residents, their relatives, and Ashlynn Grange team members.
Athena Care Homes MD Mala Agarwal said: “I am really excited to be here today opening Milton Lodge and meeting some of the new residents living in these first-class facilities.
“I am really proud of this unit, it is a fantastic, bright and modern environment which allows our team to provide tailored care to our residents, accommodating their needs and their wishes. I am absolutely sure the residents making Milton Lodge their home, are going to love living here”
Desiree Jooste, registered home manager at Ashlynn Grange Care Home, added: “We are proud to be able to offer this newly-refurbished community for our residents and their relatives.
“We are also excited to be able to open it up to the wider community in Peterborough when we host awareness sessions and open days. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this welcoming space here at Ashlynn Grange.”
