Visit to new care home in Herne Bay
Yesterday we were lucky to be invited to speak to the team and selected guests at the new Barchester Healthcare care home in Herne Bay. Herne Place is due to open in the summer of 2020. The home is 2 minutes off the A299 and about five minutes away from the seafront.
The first phase will see forty rooms en-suite rooms being filled with individuals needing residential care, dementia care and respite breaks. With residents being able to have on-site private dining for special occasions, spa bathing, onsite hairdressing and a dedicated minibus for day trips. Being a new home it will have all the modern facilities for those living with dementia to live in a dementia friendly, multi sensory environment. From a quick review of the menu it does not look as if anyone will go hungry! With breakfast, mid morning snacks, a three course lunch, afternoon tea, a three course evening meal along with the options of evening supper and a late night menu I think some larger size trousers may also be on the menu. The builders are still in and welly boots may be the order of the day for a visit but the team would love to see you if you are looking at options for the future. Some may think that this is an advertising gimmick but we truly support the great care homes and their teams who support us with our clients so it is only right that we shout about the good homes we find!
