A £13m care home in Dawlish, Devon, has announced a community open day ahead of its official March opening.
The 71-bed Claremont Manor will offer personalised residential, dementia, and nursing care. Ahead of the home opening next month, members of the local community have been invited to attend an open day on Saturday 24 February. The team will welcome visitors with activities and entertainment, home tours, and dishes from the home’s menus.
Claremont Manor is the latest addition to the Maria Mallaband Care Group (MMCG) portfolio of more than 80 care homes across the UK, and boasts facilities including a hair and beauty salon, cinema room, wellness suite, a private dining and leisure suite, and a grandchildren’s room, where families with younger children can enjoy time together.
Claremont Manor has already engaged with the local community, working with The Strand Centre Food Bank, attending the bi-annual EAT Dawlish market showcasing Hug on a Plate, and Sponsoring the Dawlish Celebrates Carnival in August.
Carla Bowman, senior operations manager at MMCG, said: “This is such an exciting time for all of us at MMCG, especially the new team who will take this home forward; we cannot wait to share this exceptional home with the Dawlish community.
“For those moving in next month, it will be the beginning of an exciting new chapter. Claremont has first-class care at its heart, but our ambition goes way beyond that. We want to create a vibrant happy community where people feel they belong, be themselves and continue to love life and live it to the fullest.”
“I’m happy to say we’ve received the warmest of welcomes and a huge amount of interest already. This will be an exceptional place to live and work and we are so excited to see it come to life and become an integral and valued part of this fantastic community.”
