Danforth Care opens third Lancashire home

Danforth Care has opened Meadow Croft, the provider’s third Lancashire care home to open in the last 12 months.

With Rossendale House and Pear Tree House already open, the grand opening for Meadow Croft took place on 1 March. The new home, which will accommodate 66 residents, boasts a hair salon, café, library, sweet shop, and cinema. Built by LNT, the care home also has landscaped gardens and underfloor heating.

Every room features an en suite wet room and mini fridge. Residents can enjoy restaurant quality meals cooked daily by Meadow Croft’s chef and team, and a personalised activity schedule.

Home manager Diane Langford says: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Meadow Croft House officially open in Garstang, Lancashire. It was a pleasure showing off this fabulous new care home, and we can’t wait to serve the wonderful community here in the village.

“Like all Danforth’s homes, Meadow Croft is A rated for energy and will operate without gas, going pure electric to be as ecofriendly as possible. An underground energy system running miles below the care home will heat the home’s hot water, provide underfloor heating and air cooling for the residents as an added bonus. With 80 per cent of the available roof space lined with solar panels, the home will be making its own electricity, and selling what it doesn’t need back to the grid.

“We are incredibly proud of all the work done to ensure this care home will be a happy, ecofriendly place to live for decades to come. We care deeply not just about our residents and staff, but about our planet as well.”
