Broomy Hill Nursing Home in Herefordshire is undergoing a refurbishment, designed around the needs of its memory care and nursing residents.
Originally built as a Victorian-era school academy in the 1900s, the home will keep its impressive architecture and some of its traditional features, while having a complete update to meet the contemporary needs of its residents today. Every inch of the home will be refurbished, from new bespoke facilities to a refreshing lick of paint in a dementia-friendly colour palette.
Since work began in May 2021, the new visitors room has already been completed, alongside the creation of a new medication and treatment room for nurses and visiting health professionals. The home also boasts a new state-of-the-art Gainsborough bath, with an integrated seat and leg-lift facility for therapy and relaxation, which residents are already enjoying.
Décor has also been finalised for all bedrooms, based both on residents’ personal preferences and dementia-friendly colour schemes designed to support memory care comfort.
Next on the list for Broomy Hill Nursing Home is the garden suite, introducing more natural light and seating alongside a dedicated TV area and new refreshment station.
Comfort and care for residents always remains the priority, so the works at Broomy Hill Nursing Home are being carried out with minimal disruption to the residents’ daily lives.
