The purpose-built care home, owned and run by WCS Care, a not for profit care provider, hosted Mr Pawsey’s visit, who went on to say:
“I first came to the site almost two years ago, to take part in laying of a ceremonial gold brick. So now the home is open and providing care, I saw very clearly the difference it is making for the residents living there.”
“From a state of the art sprinkler system, its very own movie theatre and even and old style pub, you can tell from the moment you enter the home, that it has been designed with the residents very much in mind.
Providing specialised nursing and dementia care for up to 75 people, I was able to see for myself the passion each staff member has for the people they care for at Drovers House.”
“It was particularly good to meet Beatrice Leatherbarrow, who at the grand age of 102 who is proud to be the home’s oldest resident!”
