Open Day at Leamington Spa’s Newest Care Home

Home news

Leamington Spa’s newest care home, the £6 million Priors House, is opening its doors for an open day on Friday 20th June from 10am – 2pm, giving members of the public an opportunity to take a closer look at the 80-bedded care home, before it begins welcoming residents on Monday 23rd June.

The open day coincides with National Care Home Open Day, which aims to welcome members of the public to their local care homes, connecting residents with their communities, and changing perceptions of care homes.

Visitors to the Priors House care home on Old Milverton Lane can take part in a range of activities at the ‘Around the World’ themed day. The Head Chef will be creating foods from around the world and refreshments and tours of the home will be available throughout the day.

Attendees of the open day at Priors House will also be able to pick up complimentary copies of Care UK’s ‘As Easy As ABC’ guide and the recently launched ‘Listen, Talk, Connect’. The popular guides provide practical information for those caring for loved ones living with dementia, as well as advice on how to communicate with a loved one in a care home and make the most of their visits.

Customer Relationship Manager, Mawson Chipchase, explained why he is opening the doors to Priors House.  “Priors House has been three years in the making and we are looking forward to welcoming those who want to see the residential and nursing environment for themselves. 

“We know from experience many families value the opportunity to secure a bed at a brand new care home – where their loved ones can be the first to make the most of the facilities.  The open day gives visitors to Priors House their first opportunity to take a closer look at the care home, and our doors are now open for those who want to meet the experienced team who are already on board, and find out more about the range of services we will be providing here in Leamington Spa.”

Sensitively-designed to enable its residents to live active and fulfilled lives, the care home features its very own cinema room and a hairdressing salon. With its name inspired by Royal Leamington Spa’s former name, Leamington Priors, visitors can expect a nod to local history throughout, with references to famous people from Warwickshire in the naming of the homes’ lounges, dining rooms and cafĂ©. 

All bedrooms at Priors House have their own en-suite wet room, a flat-screen television, adjustable profile bed and a 24-hour nurse call system. There is a sun-filled garden room and safe and secure, wheelchair friendly landscaped gardens.
