On 21 October, Cllr Keith Humphries, Wiltshire Council Cabinet Member for Adult Care, unveiled the Foundation Stone for the Trust's new state-of-the-art care centre on the Hilperton Road site in Trowbridge.
Set for completion in December 2016, the new 64 bed care centre being constructed by Stepnell, will include two floors dedicated to providing specialist dementia care and will incorporate a number of features to promote reminscence as therapy. The home will feature large bedrooms with en suite bathroom facilities, Sky and digital TV, Wi-Fi and 24-hour nurse call facility. Each resident will have access to a household living area including a lounge, sitting room, kitchen and dining room. There is also a central communal area for residents to access which includes a shop/café, cinema and hair salon.
The external area will provide a safe and secure garden for residents to access and will include a fully landscaped sensory garden with raised planters and vegetable patches.
Keep watching this space for updates on our exciting new development.
