Ardale, a new name to the residential and nursing care sector have named Oakham Grange as its first home. The £9 million bespoke 60 bed new build home is scheduled to open in early 2020, creating 200 new jobs.
"Ardale may be a new name to the healthcare sector, but behind the name is a senior team with many years nursing care and expertise," says Lesa McAnulty, Ardale’s chief operating officer.
Ardale is on a mission to deliver care and support that is meaningful to each individual with the warmth and personality that only a family owned company can create. It will provide nursing care and support underpinned by a care ethos of promoting independence while maintaining friendships and interests.
One of Oakham Grange’s first visitors was Brabham, Ardale’s Therapy Dog.
"My pets are really important to me, so Brabham represents Ardale’s home from home, family approach to nursing care. Oakham Grange is going to be our residents' home, for them to live their lives as they want, enabled by our well trained care team," says McAnulty.
"Oakham is a new place for me and I am really looking forward to meeting local people and learning more about the uniqueness of Oakham and Rutland. Oakham Grange is certainly going to be a special place and I am very excited about Ardale’s ability to create a very different kind of care service."
