New £13m care home’s successful launch

An open day at Dawlish’s newest care home gave members of the community a preview of the impressive facilities at the £13m development, and a chance to meet the team.

Claremont Manor, a 71-bed care home with five-star facilities in Dawlish, hosted an open event Saturday February 24th, when the home’s new team welcomed visitors with entertainment, home tours, goody bags as well as some food tasters inspired by dishes from the home’s menus.

The home is the latest addition to the Maria Mallaband Care Group (MMCG) portfolio of more than 80 care homes across the UK and will offer personalised residential, dementia and nursing care when it opens officially next month.

With its luxury features, including large en-suite rooms, landscaped grounds, a hair and beauty salon, a cinema room, a wellness suite, private dining and leisure suite as well as a Grandchildren’s Room, where families with younger children can enjoy time together, it has attracted great interest locally, with visitors commenting “This is the talk of the town!”

As well as inviting people in, the home’s fledging team has already been out and about locally, working with The Strand Centre Food Bank, attending the bi-annual EAT Dawlish market showcasing Hug on a Plate, and Sponsoring the Dawlish Celebrates Carnival last August. 

Carla Bowman, Home Manager of Claremont Manor said: 

“Claremont Manor has already been warmly welcomed by the community and we were delighted to see so many people at our open event, with many families so impressed they asked about availability there and then.

“It was also a fantastic opportunity to bring our new team together – there is so much excitement and anticipation around bringing this beautiful new home to life and getting this new community within a community established.”

MMCG’s ambition for Claremont Manor is not only to provide first class care in a luxurious home-from-home setting, but also to create a thriving environment, where people can continue to live their lives to the fullest and remain connected to family and friends and the wider community.

The group’s sector leading lifestyle programme More…. will be rolled out at Claremont Manor. The new lifestyle team will begin by creating a personalised lifestyle plan for each individual, capturing their likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests, and the activities they would like to try or continue with. Just Bowl indoor bowls and ‘Oomph! On Demand, an online platform offering a choice of live and recorded exercise sessions, virtual tours, language lessons, history talks, music concerts, interactive quizzes and more will be among the offer of lifestyle opportunities, with many more developed in conjunction with the interests of those living there.

Similarly, MMCG’s hospitality programme Hug on a Plate will also see menus personalised to the preferences of those living in the home, with their favourite and familiar dishes added to the menu, helping to boost connection and happiness at mealtimes.
