Ribbon cut at Barchester’s newest care home

The newest care home to join the Barchester family has been welcomed into the fold with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Florence Court in Hampshire’s Titchfield Common will be home to residents from the summer, with a variety of bespoke residential, dementia and respite care on offer.

Now that the ribbon has been cut, families looking for a care home for their loved ones can visit the marketing suite to learn more about the accommodation and Barchester’s ethos on caring for the elderly.

Florence Court has 75 en-suite bedrooms and will offer its residents a wide range of facilities. These include spa baths, smart TVs and a selection of communal dining rooms and lounges, as well as a private dining space for special occasions.

When it comes to keeping busy and entertained, those living at Florence Court will be able to enjoy its on-site cinema, wellness room and activities cafe. The home’s hair and beauty salon will also ensure residents look and feel their best.

Lauren Mortimer, deputy manager at Florence Court, said: “Personalised care really is at the heart of everything we do, and we are looking forward to meeting new friends from within the local community and to welcoming our new residents, and their loved ones, when it is safe to do so.”

She has encouraged families to visit the new marketing suite to find out more about the care Barchester provides and meet the staff. The process is designed to pave the way for a smooth transition for residents when they move into the home in the coming weeks.

Florence Court is the newest addition to Barchester’s network of 236 care homes across the UK. Catering to the needs of some 12,000 residents, there’s the option for short respite breaks, as well as long-term stays.

There is a real focus on dignity, choice and independence throughout Barchester’s homes, ensuring individuality is celebrated and each day is enjoyed. A collaborative care plan helps to get new residents settled and educate staff about their likes and dislikes.
