Crowborough community celebrates opening of Heather View nursing home

September 22nd 2011

Crowborough residents can now enjoy the very best of specialist dementia care with the opening of Heather View, Care UK’s new flagship home, by two very special local VIPs.

The ceremonial ribbon was cut by 86-year-old volunteer Joan Brookbank and local schoolgirl Abbie Goldsmith. Joan founded the local Alzheimer’s Society branch after her husband developed the condition; Abbie won a competition at Sir Henry Fermor Church of England Primary School to name the home.

To celebrate the opening the new home was given a village fete feel. Residents, relatives and staff joined in the fun which included a giant chocolate fountain, a craft market, complementary therapy stalls, magic tricks and jazz standards performed by the Gershwin Gang.

Project Manager Sara Goodwin said: “We had a brilliant day. We invited the community and families to come and join us and everyone had a lot of fun. Our residents had a wonderful time and we were touched and pleased with the feedback we got from their relatives.

We get to know all of our residents so we can ensure that we create a care plan that is perfectly suited to their needs, including any hobbies or interests that we can help them take part in. Heather View is a real home from home, with a shop, tearoom, library, cinema and hair salon. These are set around an indoor village green, which is a popular spot for our residents to spend time. Our beautiful gardens enable residents to spend time outdoors, playing games or relaxing taking in the stunning surroundings.
