Halstead care home to celebrate dementia suite launch

Home news

The team at Colne View care home on Dame Mary Walk, Colchester Road in Halstead are inviting the local community to join in the celebrations for the official opening of the Woodland Walk suite on Tuesday 24th November.

From 2pm to 5pm, visitors can drop-in to the care home to take a first look at the suite, which will offer specialist dementia care for 12 older people.  To mark the opening, residents, Caroline Curtis and Guy Lyster, will join with guest of honour, the Deputy Mayor of Halstead, Shirley Diver, to perform the all-important ceremonial ribbon cutting. 

Throughout the afternoon, residents at Colne View will also be taking part in baking activities and there will be live entertainment from singer Chris Gordon to get everyone in the party spirit.

Omar Taylor, home manager at Colne View, said: “The unveiling of the Woodland Walk suite is an important milestone for all of us at Colne View, as it means we can now meet the demand in Halstead and beyond for advanced dementia care.

“We have built a warm, welcoming community here at Colne View, with everything in place so we can provide the highest standards of personalised care, and it is great that we are in a position to build on our existing provision and expand our offering. We are really looking forward to welcoming new residents to the Woodland Walk suite over the coming months and hope local people will join us as we celebrate its opening.”

Colne View is a state-of-the-art care home which provides full-time residential, nursing, dementia and nursing dementia care, as well as short-term day and respite care.  Designed to enable its residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has its very own cinema, coffee shop and hair salon, and there is plenty of space both indoors and out for relaxation and recreation.
