Our new premium care home will be opening in Melbourn, near Royston, in early 2020 and will offer residential, respite and dementia care to older individuals.
Our dedicated staff members will provide high quality residential care for frail older people who would benefit from additional care and support in a warm and friendly environment.
Our Memory Lane community will incorporate person-centred design in its use of colour and cues to help individuals navigate through the home, whilst thoughtful interior design features, such us adapted crockery and tableware, will assist with reminiscence. Communities will be broken up into small units with a family feel so people can feel safe and comfortable. Care will be focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person-centred approach. Staffing levels will reflect the needs of residents, and people living with dementia will be offered a range of activities to help preserve life skills, support interactions and retain a sense of purpose and selfhood.
The village of Melbourn is steeped in history and has some of the most beautiful thatched cottages in the country, and the springs at Melbourn Bury, along with the peaceful River Mel, have also made it very popular with locals and visitors alike.
The Melbourn Community Hub has been a great addition to the village, which comprises Bookmark Café, the library, parish council offices and it is also a venue for many community activities and events. There are many clubs and societies that meet regularly, in addition to the village’s Mobile Warden Scheme, ensuring that no one is left isolated. The village is renowned for a strong rural, community spirit that continues to thrive, and which Melbourn Springs Care Home will very much be a part
