Moving into our lovely new home!

Date of news/blog: 1st July 2017

We’ve been busy and on the go all week as we’re finally moving into our beautiful new home Pine Martin Grange, in Wareham, Dorset. Pine Martin Grange is one of our two luxury care homes that aims to combine the highest standards of care with the ease of an all-inclusive service.

So far we have received and set up sixty-four brand new beds, complete with luxurious bedding sets for each. And for our social areas, such as the lounge and café, sofas and armchairs have arrived and look very comfortable.

Other essentials that we’ve been setting up include our in-room telephone systems and wifi. The line rental of all our phones will be available at no extra cost. Residents who have telephone numbers in the local Wareham area will also be able to transfer their phone number to their bedroom for added convenience. This helps to make things simple for residents and also provides a way to easily keep in touch with family and friends. Equipment for our on-site cinema has also arrived which we are very excited about. At Pine Martin Grange it is important that our residents feel as settled and relaxed as possible, so our cinema can hopefully become a great place to socialise with friends.

To keep our care home running at its best every day, we have commissioned four premium washing machines and dishwashers, as well as trolleys of all shapes and sizes to support our care and nursing teams. Max from Housekeeping, Chris our Head Chef and Anthony our Kitchen Assistant have been working alongside Ann, our Operations Manager, to unpack all our lovely new dining supplies. Including lots of cutlery and Royal Doulton tableware for an extra special touch here at Pine Martin Grange.

And to end our updates for the week, we have also had a visit from the CQC (the Care Quality Commission) who came to assess our status as an operational care home. We’re very pleased and proud to announce that they declared us to be fully fit to run. Now that our initial CQC visit is complete, the next step will be some organising and adding a few finishing touches and then we’ll be ready to welcome our first residents! We’re very much looking forward to meeting you all.
