On 22 September, Councillor Noel Barrett-Morton, the Mayor of Marlborough cut the ribbon to open the home's newly-built 'destination area' and refurbished dementia care household.

The renovation project at Coombe End Court was designed to help further meet the physical and soical needs of residents living with dementia.  As part of the project, the 60-bed care home now has a 'destination area' that includes a brand new café and bistro, cinema, corner shop and an informal seating area, as well as the home's hair salon, which was given a full makeover.

The ground floor's 20-bed household has also undergone a major refurbishment, which was completed by Thames Ceiling and Interior Designer Colourways.  This part of the refurbishment has resulted in the latest in dementia design being implemented in the home, including homely environments in the form of a new communal kitchen; themed interior design; and open plan architecture for residents with limited mobility.

We were very proud to welcome so many members of the local community to the ceremony to show off our posh new facilities on what was a very memorable occasion.
