Derby care home celebrates grand opening

Heatherton House in Littleover, Derby, has celebrated its grand opening with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.

The new luxury home is the latest opening from Danforth Care Homes, and offers residential, dementia, and respite care for 66 residents. Facilities at Heatherton House include a beauty salon, cinema, library and landscaped gardens, as well as a coffee bar and restaurant for guests. The home offers restaurant-quality food cooked by on-site chefs.

According to Danforth , Heatherton House is ‘on a path to zero-carbon consumption and self-generation of power’, with the build incorporating solar panels.

Care home manager Amanda Jelbert said: “We are delighted to open this home officially here in Derby. We’ve designed the home to be a safe and comfortable space for residents to live their lives to the full, enjoying everyday activities with tailored care and support. Heatherton House will be a true asset to the Derby community.

“It is important for us that the residents always feel supported and valued. Through person centred care, we will recognise each individuals' ambitions and respect who they are, and the life they lived before joining us.

“The space should feel like a home, which is why we will work hard to uphold an inclusive, safe environment where family can visit and enjoy their lifestyle with them, from coffee bar trips to joining in with daily activities.”
