Newly appointed general manager Sue Monger recently unveiled the marketing suite at Barchester Healthcare’s brand new luxury care home in Sherborne, Trinity Manor; she cut the ribbon to the completed part of the home and toasted the opening with team members who joined her on the day.
On the day, Monger was joined by Dovile Valiulyte, home services advisor, Charlotte Howson, divisional sales and marketing manager, Andrew Berry, project manager and Lucy Whitworth, admin manager.
Doors opened to the community on 31 August and 1 September when guests were invited to preview the services available at the home and were able to enjoy a spread of sweet and savoury treats provided by the hospitality team as they discussed their care needs.
The marketing suite at Trinity Manor Care Home was fitted out by Barchester’s team of expert interior designers and offers an opportunity to see what the finished 64-bed care home will look like when complete.
The marketing suite features spacious en-suite bedrooms, a lounge, an activities room and a large assisted spa bathroom, all designed with the comfort of residents in mind.
When it opens, the home will also feature a café, a cinema with a pre drinks seating area, a private dining room, choice of lounges, spa bathrooms, a life skills kitchen, a large terrace, an in-house hair salon and premier, en-suite bedrooms.
A daily life enrichment programme with an array of tailored activities, a concierge service, as well as delicious and nutritious seasonal meals will also be provided services at the home. The home will also be fitted with a “magic table”, an interactive, multisensory projector that will bring a bit of magic to residents living with dementia with a variety of fun, musical games.
As general manager Sue Manor cut the ribbon, she said: “We’re excited to showcase our beautiful marketing suite to the local community as a first look around of the home. Our marketing suite is a wonderful way for people to come and see the high quality environment that we are creating and meet the friendly team who will be caring for our residents.”
She continued, “Personalised care really is at the heart of everything we do and we are looking forward to meeting our new neighbours and making new friends from within our community."
