Barchester Holds Key to Future Care at Trinity Manor

Barchester Healthcare recently received the keys to Trinity Manor Care Home in Sherborne, enhancing the independent care home provider’s portfolio.

Sue Monger, the General Manager of Trinity Manor was delighted to accept the keys to the latest 64-bed property on Bradford Road from the Project Construction Manager Nigel Custard from Acheson Construction. During the build more than 140,000 bricks were laid, over 900 energy-saving light bulbs were fitted, and in addition to 1,800m² of turf, 500 plants, trees and shrubs were used to create the landscaped grounds.

Sue Monger said: “The builders have done a sterling job and the finish is second to none. Our expert interior design team has also added flair and luxury furnishings to the interior, completing the entire refurbishment in just two weeks!

“Our intention is to create a building that offers bespoke, high quality to our residents, where we can provide person-centred care to meet their individual needs. Personalised care really is at the heart of everything we do, and we are looking forward to welcoming our first residents in December.”

When it opens, the home will 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, multi-sensory projector that will bring a bit of magic to residents living with dementia with a variety of fun, musical games.

Trinity Manor Care Home is owned and operated by Barchester Healthcare, and will provide personalised residential and dementia care for 64 older people in the neighbouring community, and will open its doors to residents this winter.

The marketing suite will be open 7 days a week, where the Trinity Manor team will be on hand to answer any questions about the services available, and will be able to discuss the care options available when the home is ready to welcome residents in December 2019.
