Barchester Healthcare has opened a new care home which caters for people suffering from dementia.

Shadow health secretary Stephen O'Brien joined the new staff at Barchester Beeston View care home at Idenshall Hall, Tarporley, in celebrating the grand opening with a glass of champagne, reports the Winsford Guardian.

The new home is a 48-bed facility, with specialist care for dementia patients and 24-hour residential care services for elderly and frail individuals.

Tim Hammond, managing director of Barchester Healthcare, told the publication: "Barchester looks forward to working with these families and offering those relatives living with dementia a fresh lease of life in the inspirational, safe and luxury surroundings of the new home."

On May 1st an open house was held at the care home and representatives from local government associations and charities such as Help the Aged and the Alzheimer's Society all took a look around.

This follows news that a Barchester care home resident was recently treated to a trip to St James' Park courtesy of the Willow Foundation and the Barchester Foundation.
