Humanitarian Terry Waite CBE opened a state-of-the-art care home at Richmond Letcombe Regis, a new 60 million retirement village near Wantage, Oxfordshire.
The retirement village, built and operated by Richmond Villages, part of the Barchester Healthcare Group, is the only development of its type in Oxfordshire; it offers a variety of homes and excellent levels of care, services and facilities for the over 55s.The care home is located at the heart of the village and has 51 care bedrooms for those requiring 24-hour nursing and dementia care.
These large, beautifully decorated and furnished rooms go well beyond what many expect of a care bedroom, with exceptional features and standards of personal care. Terry Waite was joined by the first residents of the retirement village Roger and Pauline Andrews to unveil a plaque to mark the official opening.
