A HARTLEPOOL care home, Queens Meadow Care Home, has been allocated almost £30,000 to carry out improvements for residents with dementia.
Queens Meadow Care Home was awarded the funding from the Improved Better Care Fund (iBCF), allocated by Hartlepool Borough Council.
As agreed in the home’s original proposal, the money will be spent on enhancing the care home to benefit residents, as well as creating a more dementia friendly environment.
The home, on Stockton Road, received a total of £29,776.
Interior work and garden renovations have already been carried out and there are plans to create a 60s style café – as well as install a shed and greenhouse for green-fingered residents.
