Sandstone Care welcomes first resident to Preston care home

A new purpose-built luxury care home near Preston has opened and welcomed its first resident.

Sandstone Care’s Ribble Court care home in Much Hoole is a 53-bed property providing a mix of luxury residential care and specialist/complex nursing care.

Manager Samantha Smith has welcomed the home’s first resident, Geoff Dunnings (pictured), a retired local policeman.

Dunnings, 87, who is married to Joan with whom he has three children and three grandchildren, moved into Ribble Court after finding it hard to cope at home on his own.

A former policeman, he worked for Lancashire Constabulary as a Traffic Officer in Hutton until he retired.

“When I was living on my own at home I found that I had too many decisions to make, even down to what to eat and what to watch. It was too much. I’m now enjoying living at Ribble Court because I have no responsibilities and I can just relax and do what I want to do,” he said.

Ribble Court is the sixth care home in the Sandstone Care portfolio.

Other homes include Longridge Hall and Fleetwood Hall, both in Lancashire, St Helens Hall in Merseyside, The Oaks in Newtown, Wales and Oak Springs in Liverpool.
